I like to foil at 170 then pull off at 195 and wrap again in foil and let sit in the cooler for 2 hrs min.

If you are cooking at 225 - 250.... after you foil, you can bump up the temp to 275 without any ill effects if you want to speed things up a little more.

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

I start looking to pull around 190-200. When in this range and the temp probe goes in easy I pull it. It has a little resistance let it cook al little longer. Just my 2 cents.

Don't take it off on temp. alone. Do the probe test to see if it slides in with little or no resistance.

we don't foil our brisket until its done then into the cooler for a rest time that can vary from 1/2 hr to 2 hrs.

Done can be anywhere from 195-210 it all depends on the brisket.

Took it off at 195 foiled an let sit in the cooler for an hour maybe two. Unwrapped it and ate it right out of the foil. I got really drunk too. Ill post pics tonight. It was well done but still tender and tasted GREAT! thanks for all the help.

I agree with the other's, "pull when it's tender, not on temp alone". I've had briskets tender and done at 185ļ, others not until around 200ļ.

I'm still trying to figure this whole thing out. Most of the briskets I've cooked are very dry at the 180-190F internal temperature. But lately I've been taking my briskets up to 210F and they are very moist.

Is this a variation in individual briskets, or am I finally hitting a point where the collagen has broken down and that is what is providing the moisture?

brisket temp?

I don't profess to be a BBQ GURU- but when I do a Brisket or Butt or Ribs , I do the touchy-feely thing! Since Thremometers are expensive(the ones that DO woke weel) I forgo them and revert to my old fation ways. Pop taught me(and experience) that when my Brisket is gettig done(I use the rule of thumb of 1-1/2 hrs./lb.@200* to 225*) it starts to get somewhat stiffer to move(jiggle).This tell me the fat,connective tissue and collagen is breakind down. The Flat and the Point will be firmer and the fat between the two will be the what you feel moving. That's when I stick my instant read therm into to thick part and check. Only one hole, no way to give the juices a chance to excape during cooking and less STUFFin the bottom of the Pit to clean-up. Ribs, get the bend test and Butts ge thier bones pulled(that's kinda my definition of Pulled Pork-LOL).
Any way, I smoke with pre-burned wood(coals only) as to maintain a Blue Smoke.

Just My Opinion...
