    Brisket

    Ok I am sure it's been on here before but I want to do a brisket on the drum this weekend and I want to know fat side up or fat side down?
    Which do you prefer?

    Fat side down if it is going to be a slow cook in the drum.

    Fat side down protects the meat from over browning on the bottom. Sometimes I place the brisket in fat side down...then put the fat trimmings on top of the brisket to baste the meat while cooking.
    I'm not a competition cook, just cook for myself and friends so I'm not as picky about how the brisket looks when finished as long as it tastes great. I like the added flavor of the fat basted meat.

    I concur. Fat side down. I am about to put a small one on right now as soon as my drum comes to temp! Good luck bro!
