I also like the "flat cut" much better flavor!

Brands? Find your local butcher.

To be clear, the fat I'm referring to is internal marbling. Both cuts should have a substantial fat cap which should remain on during cooking. After that, any way you slice it, it will be delicious.

I like the round cut often called the "point". It's not as lean as a flat but has so much flavor. We have a local purveyor here in SE Michigan, Wigley's - best corned beef I've ever made!

Be careful that you are buying brisket corned beef. Sometimes they corn the round, which is terrible.
