So you are not saying to always put your brisket on the pit fat side down? That is what I thought you meant.
Or are you saying that whether you put the fat cap up or the fat cap down is dependent on your type of pit - i.e., fire in a fire box on the side of the pit (fat cap up) vs fire on the bottom of the pit below the meat (fat cap down)?
I plan on watching the videos when I get a chance.
