Down. Plenty internal fat to keep that butt juicy.

The theory is cap down in a barrel to protect from the direct heat. The debate goes on and on and on and on....

And on.

Down helps protect from the direct heat.

trimmed. I take off the fat cap before cooking pork butt.

Brisket - down on a UDS to protect the meat.
