Smoking Brisket point

Looking for advice/tips on smoking a brisket point. I've smoked a full brisket plenty of times, but never just the point. I'll be using a large BGE. Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.

    Do it the same way you do a full brisket..

    The only plus I would offer is that given the higher fat content you will get the probe tender feel in the high 190's-low 200's.  Then let it run (render the fat) til around 210*F or so.  But nice score for the point only-great eats await!
