You really can't miss it, especially when the brisket is hot. On the bottom you'll notice a long diagonal vein of fat, it separates the two. Slip your knife in there and just follow the soft path of hot fat.

The link above is a GREAT tutorial. Here's a link to my first cook following the tutorial, along the way you'll see the point literally pulled away from the flat:

When my Brisket is done,I rub my hand(no knife) down the flat on the fat and push toward the point end,the point just falls off.

I was waiting for someone else to say it!

Jokes aside, I agree with Oldschool, I use my gloved hand to separate the two. It doesn't take much to separate when the brisket is done.

I separate mine before the smoke. It's easy, visible and necessary.
