I used to religiously cook fat side up because AF cooked his briskets that way. Then I learned my Smoker was putting the majority of the heat below the meat. Flipped it over and got good results. Plus…if I didn’t do a good job of trimming I could take some off after the cook and not lose the bark on the meat.

This is exactly correct. Whether I cook fat side up or down just depends on the cooker that I'm using that day. An an off-set, top flow smoke? Absolutely fat side up. On a vertical cabinet smoker? Fat side down.
