    I have searched an failed :( .

    I remember a great thread on how to cut/slice a brisket. It had some great pointers and supporting pictures.

    Can someone drop a link to it?

    I suspect this is what you were after: Dutch's Brisket Slicing Tips

    Even if it's not the exact post, it should suffice. This was posted by our resident butcher guru Dutch.

    Thanks for the replies. I am more so looking for the following:

    1) Do I cut with the grain or against the grain?

    2) Is it different when doing the point VS. the flat?

    Never mind I ggoogled it...

    Separate the flat and point portions along the natural seam of fat and slice the flat across the grain 1/4" - 3/8" thick. The point can be sliced or chopped.

    Good to go.

    Thank you,
