Reply to "How far in advance do you rub your brisket?"

I have smoked both together and separate, and not had much difference either way. BTW the therm goes in the flat, so you are not overcooking it. The point, being much more marbled, does not need to come to the full 195° to be tender, and can be removed when the flat is done. The only advantage I have found to separating them, is a shorter cooking time.
Note that the bbq pros trim the deckle fat in between, but do not separate.
