hello all, I’m a newbie to the smoke fire community. I have long smoked my briskets on the old fashioned kettle. When smoking briskets on the kettle it was always advised to put the fat side down to help protect it from the hot coals below. Can anyone tell me if the smoke fire runs hotter above or below the briskets when going low and slow at 250/275? Any help is much appreciated!
