How do you know which way the grain runs in meat?

Chef's answer
Visually, you should be able to see lines running in one direction, all the way across the brisket. Those are the muscle fibers. If it's a bit hard to tell just by looking, grab each end of the brisket and pull in opposite directions. You should be able to see the fibers separate or stretch away from each other.
