Help! Brisket

first cook on the 22 today....was gonna do 4 butts but decided
to do 2 and a brisket. I've cooked maybe 3 in my life, none in
the last 5 years, none that were any good.


so here it is, 12 pounds tough meat. what do I do?

fat cap up or down?
how much fat should I trim?
I want to leave the point on during the cook.

Going to open a can of worms on this one Jim.
I go KISS, rub a whole packer down and throw it on at 275 300 direct. Fat cap down as I go with no water pan and I think it helps as a heat shield so to speak. I then cut the point off at 195 and foil the flat. Back on with the point for burnt ends. I do mop the point. to get a good bark. Your millage may vary, Void where prohibited.

Ive only done a hand full of them too Cap but I dont trim any fat off . I rub it down and do the "simple" 225* slow and low. I wrap (so far) at 190*. Ive never put the point back on but im gonna do it on the next one! If you start now it shouild be ready for breakfast tomorrow.

Mustard should be fine. Ive used Olive oil before too.....just not a whole lot of it so the rub sticks real good.
