Brisket chili

I've read a few posts about using brisket in chili.... How exactly would you do so? For chili I always cook the meat with onions, garlic, chilis and beans (kidding, kidding) for hours until the favors meld. But if I use leftover brisket, I'll be cooking meat that's already cooked and tender... Suggestions?

    It will probably just get more moist-er and tender-er. You could also just add towards the end.

    Glad you are kidding about the beans. Your compatriots may "tex-communicate" you.

    I'd slice it up cross grain so you don't get any long chewy strands.  Avoid boiling it with the brisket, simmer very low.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    It doesn't dry out in the least. Best chili I ever made was Texas style brisket chili on the is the recipe, and beans were not used. ;)
