Greg, When I went to BBQ Judge class the instructor gave me his way of doing brisket. He made it very clear that he thinks brisket is the very worst cut of meat on the planet.
Anyway he does low and slow. Puts it in a foil pan, Fat side up or down? Smokes for however long, 6hrs?, then puts foil over the pan and finishes it covered for the last three.
I put a beer in the last one I did, seems like a waste but I can't drink any more so who cares.
My thought with this is, cook it as you would even though it's in the pan. and cover just after you get past the stall. All the drippings are in the pan and stay with the meat. AT about 195-200, I foiled out of the pan to let it rest for about an hour.
A few other Brethren have said they have also used this method. Maybe not the same but similar. Good luck.
