And you did it without talking down to folks.
The only thing I would add is:
I have found that when the brisket is properly done, you can take a gloved hand and seperate the point from the flat without using a knife.
It is so predicable that I can tell the finish texture from just that test. If I have to use a knife, they come out "under-done"
This stops any problems with cutting flat or point accidently and mixing them up. Each portion is clearly defined and YUMMY!
