I have several briskets in the freezer, since cooking one or three is the same amount of time and work I would like to have some ready to go when needed.

What’s the best way to pre-cook a brisket and freeze, and how would thaw and re-heat?

Cook, rest, slice. Then vacuum seal portions you want ice bath and freeze. When you get ready for a brisket meal warm it up in boiling water or the microwave.
This would be my approach. Very Happy

ff6849, I've cooked and frozen a few, to me it's a last resort, I like the texture better freshly cooked.

If you have to, KAM's idea is the way I'd go for portioning it out and re-heating ease.

Good luck with it. Very Happy

Whether you slice it or freeze it whole (vacuum sealed of course) I would add a bit of beef broth to the bags before sealing.

I usually split in the middle the long way (across the grain) and vacuum seal. this is after chilling in the frig. By splitting the brisket, you can the boil the sealed bag in a pot without any problem. Hope this helps. Tom
