Default BBQ Brisket Sandwich: Flat or Point?

I've read that the chunked flat is better for a bbq sandwich, but that its more messy and more difficult to handle. Could it be better to use slices from the flat instead? less messy and fitting easier into a sandwich?

Sandwich idea: Brisket (flat or point), coleslaw, bbq sauce, onion, pickle.

The point has a bit more fat than I care for.
I like the flat either sliced or chopped.

Given the choice, I go with sliced point, but, sliced flat is good too. Then, sometimes, I will chop it all up and use that.

It is a matter of personal preference. I like the point better -- more fat. Others like a leaner slice on their sammich, so they go with the flat. A good BBQ joint will let you choose.

Now that is a smoke ring. And those are what belong in a sandwich.
