Sounds like the brisket was over cooked. Sitting in foil for 4 hours could have been the problem. Cut back to two hours.
As far jalapenos go, some are hot and some are mild. You never know what you are going to get. I went looking for some hot ones at the local farmer's market. The guy I bought them from walked up to me when I was looking them over and said "Be careful with those. They are very hot." Since that is what I was looking for, I bought what I needed, took them home, made ABTs and jalapeno/garlic sauce. They were almost as mild a bell peppers even with the seeds. Very disappointing.
Then again, I have bought them, cleaned the seeds and membranes out and they were like eating sticks of fire.
