I usually inject my briskets with a beef broth solution and cook hot at 275F for 8 or so hours. I wrap it in foil or a aluminum pan at 170F and bring it up to 200F and then let it rest for a couple hours. The best I got was 10th place out of 50 competitors.

I start mine at 200 and let that go to internal 150 or so then turn up to 225 until internal 175-180. Then put in pan and cover with foil, turn up heat to 240 and pull at internal of 197-205. Super moist, super tender but nice pull and bark/ring that legends are made of.

Oh, forgot to mention that I do inject with a broth mixture and dry rub the night before. If you're interested lmk and I'll post up recipes for both.

That sounds like a solid technique. I will try it out on my next brisket.

I have a digital controller so changing temps like you do shouldn't be a problem.

Another thing you can try is once you hit your temp. Wrap your brisket in foil then some old towel or blankets. Throw it in a cooler and let it rest for an hour. This way the bark isn't ruined by being wrapped while smoking and your juices will be redistributd in the meat. I use this method every time for briskets chucks and butts.

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." --Jack Handey
