Default Help! Brisket! What am I doing wrong?

Back again for more help. Everytime I smoke a Brisket, it comes out too dry.

My first go round looked like this:

Last night I tried again...

2.5 lb flat. Kosher Salt, Black Pepper, Garlic Rub. Cooked at about 280* Fat Cap down until 170* on the meat probe... wrapped in Parchment Paper until 202* on the meat probe... rested in an oven at 170* for 1 hour and 15 mins. ...

Here is what is looked like:

It tasted pretty good in some parts, but I am hoping to get that really juicy jiggly brisket I saw in this video...

So what am I doing wrong?

Cook temp too high?

Wrapping too late?

Not letting it settle long enough after the cook?

I am cooking another tomorrow and I need an assist!

Thanks in advance!
