I have better luck with flats smoking them at higher temps...325-350...then foil @ 160 ish...then cooler @ 190 ish (or when the temp probe slides in with little to no resistance. I let 'em rest in the cooler for an hour before slicing. Try some oak (if you have it) next time...it's killer on brisket.
