That's true if your brisket is up near the lid where the thermo is located on the offset smoker. I guess if you using a vertical smoker it also makes sense.

However, if it is near the fire box, the hottest part is down near the box.

Seems like fat down provides a good heat shield. Of course the fat up, letting it act as a natural basting .

So i just turned my brisket .
