Melting surface fat does not penetrate the meat.

I believe this is correct. I know I read an article that scientifically claimed this somewhere. That's why you're better off fat cap down, for the cap to protect your meat from direct heat. Or do like I do and trim it off completely so you get more of a smoke ring on that side.

Here we go.

It's simple. the fat in the meat makes it juicy not the fat on it. the internal fat gets flavorful when it gets all warm and happy up there about 160 thru 200 degrees, The cap is not going to do anything but keep the smoke flavor and the rub from getting to the meat.

If you have direct heat your just flat out doing it wrong, all your doing by having a fat cap on the meat is filling the grease trap. I guess if you buy cheap meat (no one on CP eats anything less than Japanese Kobe) you could plug it to get the fat into the muscle but that's what us old schooler's call cheating. Injecting flavored oil into the meat. Not me.

Don't start Googleing shit, some smart ass will come along...

Some people here should test the meat temp and smoking wood science discussed there too. Let em Google it themselves.

Fat side down. The seasoning and baste penetrates the meat better this way. If you are concerned about fat not being on top and losing flavor just use a squeeze butter with your rub in the beginning and then again after about half the cook time.

I met him before at a stockyards ARBBQ. nice guy, dead on his science for BBQ.

I hope FMB reads it, cold meat, cold bast better than warm.... like hot water freezing faster than cold.

I've read that site for a long time. Never seen that, though. I'm just not inclined to mess with my tried and true fat cap up method. And of course, I'm not smoking directly over the heat source, so I really don't need the insulation.

Everyone googles SOMETIMES you Google all the time.

There hasn't been one subject you aren't an industry leading expert on. Quite an impressive range.from Automotive to restuarant. Literally 99 percent of topics brought up. You intimately know almost every restuarant anyone has eaten at no matter how small or large or time been in business.

There's just no way you could be telling the truth. And that's just silly.

I've smoked brisket on an open campfire several times. Tin foil was used as a "smoke tent."
Fat side down works better in that circumstance. So ****ing good.

I don't see how this is even a question, unless you're some heathen from Carolina or something. Up, of course.
