I am running NM 10-3 (indoor variety) from a PB-30 outdoor receptacle to my panel.  I have already installed a generator interlock and a 30 amp dual pole circuit breaker.  My question involves which hot wire to attach to which terminal on the breaker.  I hooked the black to the X wire connector in the receptacle and red to the Y connector. The breaker has a brass and a silver terminal.  Does it make a difference which one I use?  I have already read about the white and ground going to the bus bar.  I have space for both on the bar (I had a new panel installed a couple of years ago when I had increased circuits installed in the garage).
