Help! Can I rescue a tough brisket?

I just made my first ever brisket for a Hanukkah party tomorrow night,and while the flavor is great, the texture is, umm, chewy.

I followed a recipe which instructed cooking it fat side down, and now I'm wondering if that was a mistake.

So can this be rescued? Can I slice and reheat in sauce? Cook longer? Help me save this otherwise tasty meat!

Thanks!!!
