Most contest cooks separate the flat from the point.. There is a lot of fat that runs in between and usually gets scraped off after cooking and separating.

Most of the competitors cut off of the "flat" part of the brisket. If you look at the brisket before you buy it, you can usually see or feel where the fat veign is running through the brisket. The fat veign is usually harder than the texture of the meat. Feel around next time and check it out.
