Listen to the advice on this forum. These guys know. My .02 even tho its prolly not even worth half that... I've cooked many briskets. I used to think they were good. They weren't. Now I've tried foil. Thought it was the solution. Was good. Now I tried hot n fast with no foil and that was really good.
I'm debating myself still foil v no foil. But I will say there is no substitute for the bark of an unfoiled brisket. And it is def 10000% possibly to get tender juicy unfoiled brisket as my last attempt had proven to me.
