Default Suggestions for smoking a small brisket?

My wife picked up a 1.8 pound brisket. I've never smoked a brisket but the recipes I'm finding are all for four pound or greater briskets. Any suggestions on rubs, cooking temps, wood to use, and cooking time would be great. I'll be using a large BGE.

Wow! That is a tiny brisket. I think I would give it an hour of smoke, low heat, then foil and finish it hot and fast. Go until tender, although I have no idea what to recommend on timing.

I'd rub it up and smoke it @ 300 for an hour then foil it for another hour or till a probe will slide in with little resistance...then let it rest for an hour (in the foil) before slicing against the grain. Serve with au-gratins and beer...

I wouldn't. I'd just braise it in the oven, but if you do smoke it, do it hot and fast and foil early like JD suggests.
