He recommended the whole cut: the point (flat) cut is leaner and drier. My store had only flat cuts this year, so my beef was not as juicy as it should have been. I cooked it about 3 1/2 hrs, so it was tender, but it's the fat layer on a whole corned beef that adds juiciness and flavor. After it is cooked you just cut off as much fat as you like--it's cheaper anyway. Corned round is worthless IMHO.
