The dry part might not have been your technique maybe a just that brisket. Try a few more. I do like the temps you are using for the smoker but I don't use the internal temp for much anymore just the probe like butter feeling.
I also add liquid for the briskets nap(rest) Low sodium beef broth is what I add.
Looks good by the way!!
