Question Brisket anatomy 101

Since I finished my smoker this past winter, I've cooked a hand full of briskets....some good, some well,,,,not so much.
While I'm honing my skills though, I'd like for someone to post a pic of a brisket and explain to me what is considered the "flat" and "point". I think I know, but not sure.
I've noticed that the thick end has a layer of fat about half way through it and the other end seems to be,,,,,well flat. But what is considered the "point"?

The point is the end of the brisket where it is a little narrower. There should be a section of fat that is between the two. The point and the flat sit on each other towards that end separated by the fat between the two. Only on a whole packer brisket. You should be able to tell because the grain goes different ways.

I found this on the search feature. It is what I used to 'learn' about the same things you are asking just a few weeks ago.

same as above, must have done it at the same time.....and great minds are alike!

Wow! That is a great tutorial from Bigabyte!! Thanks a ton. As stated in the tutorial, I have found that keeping tabs on the meat temp is an exercise in futility. A brisket is done when its done.
I think it was maybe my second brisket...(not a packer) I thought since it was smaller, it wouldn't take as long to cook Could've resoled my boots with the thing. It went back on for a couple of more hours and was edible then, but by that time all my company had left.

I love this smoking thing!
