We trim our fat and rub it all over...

- fat cap up on the WSM's
- fat cap down on pit
- fat both ways on offsets...

I'm happy to answer my own question!

I, like most everyone, trim the fat cap as necessary. I cook fat side down in my WSM and do not season the fat cap. It just seems like a waste of rub to me since so much of the fat renders away, taking the rub with it.

However, I think shirt is what really does the trick!

I cook all my briskets fat side up..Except when im using my electric Cookshack.
If im doing more than one, I put the one on the bottom fat side down to help insulate it from the heating element.

Once, and for all...

1. Brisket fat cap down
2. Pork fat cap up
3. Beans in my chili
4. Water in my water pan
5. Briefs (if you can call them that )

Anything else?

I remove the exterior fat since it does nothing for me during the cook except produce grease.

Then rub all the exposed real meat and cook on.

May be unique to all the pits I have cooked on.

i season the cap because i beleive that as the fat renders it pulls some of that juice in and with that cap seasoned it will pull in the seasoned flaver as well could be wrong but ill still do it just cause lolol

I trim the fat and cook cap down...any seasoning goes into the bottom of the cooker. Kinda like taking a leak in a dark suit.

He didn't. But just because you're cute, I'll reveal that it's rubbed with Rhythm 'n QUE's 12-Bar Brisket Rub.

Hey, did I tell you that I bought the last 17 yards of that fabric in existence? I tracked it down, yes I did.
