The Difference Between Pot Roast and Brisket: Dueling Theories

Theory 1: Pot Roast is cooked in a pot on the stove. Brisket is braised and then cooked in the oven. A good mnemonic device to remember this is that brisket, like braise, starts with the letters BR.

Theory 2: Brisket is the cut of meat used to produce pot roast. Pot roast is a style in which brisket can be cooked.

Regardless, brisket is delicious. Particularly when cooked with cinnamon, ketchup, cayenne pepper, chili powder, onion soup mix and Maneschewitz Concord Grape wine.
