Default Which part of the brisket is best?

I was thinking of doing my first brisket in the next couple of weeks, bu t am not sure that I want to do a whole packer. If I was to only do a smaller piece, would the brethren recommend doing the flat or the point?

Best for what? Best for slicing for a box -- flat. Best for eating -- my choice would be point, but there are those who would argue with me.

Either way, I like packers cooked whole over trying to do flats alone.

Both ends are good in different ways. For pure taste I prefer the point, which my daughter calls the greasy end.

"Which part of the brisket is best?"


For me, it is which ever part that I happen to be eating, it's all good .

I will only cook whole ones and the best part for me is the part of the flat that is overlapped by the point

I would recommend the point if you were to choose from either of the two. I think it would allow you more room for error. It has more fat throughout and it can take more cook/smoke time.
