Can Anyone Recommend A Good Quality Affordable Meat Slicer

I was in Kansas City last summer and ate at Gates BBQ and I noticed that they slicked their brisket paper thin, kind of like Arby's. I much preferred the taste and texture of the brisket that way compared to the pencil thick slices judges require in KCBS competitions.

Does anyone own a meat slicer that they would enthsisastically recommend? Thanks!

Woody did you say you have one?

I got lucky and bought a 60 dollar refurbed Waring Pro....I only use it about 10 times a year, but it is REALLY handy when you need it.

I sliced last weeks pastrami with it, it was great. They normally cost around 100 bucks I think, and I have to reccomend it for home use.
Never had a problem with it.

Agreed on the cleaning....don't know if it's just my model or every model.
Still worth it for paper thin slices.

It was a One Day Only Sale on OXO. They've done several (on different manufacturer's) lately.

I don't think it's going to cut a brisket very good. I think you will need the sawing action that a knife gives or a meat slicer as it spins, but we will find out. Let us know Susan.

I think the secret to the Mandoline is the angled blade. Should work pretty good.
