Also keeps you from shredding the flat since the cutting board is making full contact, if it's a little stringy you can just mow right through it

I slice cap down my briskets are never dry.
My slicing knife is razor sharp so shredding a flat is never a problem even if they over cook a bit.
The only time I ever remember slicing one cap up was when the Modelo Negras were flowing pretty good. :lol:

Agree with KAM, I slice meat side up and as long as the knife is sharp you wont have any issues if you dont toast the edges by cooking hot n fast. BTW HNF to me is like 300+ but everyone is different and as already stated do what works best for you.

I for one appreciate any sound advice I can get. I know there is more than one way to cook anything, especially a brisket. In the end you gotta do what works for you. So... :deadhorse: :laughing7:
