How to use tender quick to get a nice smoke ring?

I understand there are many bbq purists out there that do not believe in inducing a smoke ring with Morton's Tender Quick. It may be cheating but i just really want a nice smoke ring. Problem is i'm not sure which steps to take.

I've heard of lightly dusting your brisket and letting it set for an hour before you rinse it completely off and smoke. I thought about adding just a tad bit of tender quick to my rub that i use. Problem with that is I like to rub my brisket and let it set overnight for at least 12 hours until i smoke it. If i do that with some tender quick in it, it will most likely cure it completely turning it into corned beef. Anyone have recommendations on what steps to take?
