I then let it sit for at least an hour or two before slicing. This is the best method I've tried so far.

I actually DID get the WSM to about 275 then put the brisket in the smoker as it was still cold. I did NOT foil it or put it in a foil pan though. I want to try that soon but I cant fit a foil pan in the 18.5" WSM that will hold the brisket.

When you say cover and crank the heat, what temperature are you talking?

I let it sit for about an hour or two before I sliced also.

Do you put any sauce on the brisket once its been cut?
