Default Corned beef for slicing?

Any ideas on the best way to cook a corned beef for slicing for sandwiches? I've always prepared corned beef with cabbage (a might fine way, no doubts) but I'd like to cook one specifically for thin slicing.

I prefer it baked.
Put it in a roasting pan with about 1/2" of water in the pan. bake it for about 2-3 hours at 325, uncovered for the last half of the cooking time. Let it rest for 20 minutes after you take it out and have a good knife ready . . .when you slice it make sure you are slicing it across the grain of the meat

I've had good luck cooking it in a crockpot. I just put it in there and let it slow cook for several hours until it's tender. Then, as Pumbaa says, be sure to slice it across the grain.

Pumbaa, I've never baked one before, that sounds great, does it get tender?

I usually slow boil it, and cool it then slice about 1/4 inch thick. Hmmm. Might be time for a brisket.

What pumbaa said, don't both uncovering it it'll be fine and don't worry about letting it rest... i cut all mine right after and they do fine... Double what he said about a good knife and across the grain... they're plenty tender...

Alton Brown recently did a Good Eats episode about corned beef. I think he slow cooked his in a stock pot or crock pot after brining. You can probably catch a re-run on the Food Network.
