Brisket Chili question

I have always made chili with either ground beef or chicken. I want to make chili with a brisket my question is would it be better if I ground up a brisket with my meat grinder or smoked a brisket and chopped it up to make the chili? I know either way would work but I want to know what others have done. Thanks.

    So I should just cook half the brisket and grind the other half....lol, that leads to another question, should I smoke the point and grind the flat or the other way around?

    i dont think it matters, i just raid the freezer for cooked beef if im making a good chili, cook it long enough til it starts to fall apart, but im no texan, there will be beans too
