    Hi everyone! Sorry I havnt posted in a long time...But I'm back with another question. I'm smoking a bunch of stuff for my daughters birthday this saturday. This is my first time smoking a brisket, my question is do I place that fat side down like you do with a pork shoulder? I'm assuming yes, but just wanted to make sure. Anyways, the menu is...a brisket, a pork shoulder, a pork loin and Dutch's baked beans! Really excited to try my first brisket and Dutch's baked beans! Q-view to come...took some pics of seasoning tonight, getting ready to smoke friday after work into saturday. I'll be chattin with you all soon!

    I always do fat cap up. Have tried both ways and prefer it this way.

    I'll be the one [​IMG] I do mine fat cap down. I like the bark better when the cap is down
