Spread a thin layer of the olive salad on the bottom half of the bread. Top with the sliced brisket spreading it evenly. Add the barbecue sauce and spread it around. Lay the cheese slice on top, then add a big spoonful of the olive salad. Spread that out evenly. Spread another layer of olive salad on the top bread and add it to the top of the sandwich.
