Brisket - What is it called now?

I am going to try and make corned beef, but am not sure what cut of meat to buy. Does anyone know what brisket is called now?

brisket is a another cut of corned meat. Nice corned beef is Corned Silverside

Corned beef

Brisket is still brisket and comes from the breast of a beast and silverside is still silverside and comes from the back leg is what I was taught when I learnt the butchering trade and nothing had changed when I retired 10 years ago

Exactly. Complete opposite ends of the animal. Both cuts can be corned, but Silverside is the most common corned beef in NZ.

Not if they have been hit by a freight truck doing 90km/hr, the brisket will be pretty close to the rear end.

silverside is similar to topside if you are wanting to try your hand at corning your own. or a rolled roast is again similar to corned brisket.
Not the similar to, not necessarily the same as

Haven't seen rolled corned brisket for years, do they still make it?
