The idea was based on a low and slow approach
The Klose was around 225-250 for four hours burning white oak/apple.
The WSM was 225-250 for seven hours burning Kingsford (blue bag).
Did not rely on a finished internal temp... that will not give you the optimum results. Brisket is naturally a tough piece of meat. Somewhere between 185 - 205 internal; the fibers begin to tender up and is fork (probe) tender... and that's how it reveals when its done... cook until tender. It took me a long time to figure that out - (not the probe suggestion) but finding when to pull off. Brisket is tough when not cooked long enough - and will turn to a crumbling mush when cooked too long.
Some folks get it right off the bat. Not me. Brisket was not a positive experience... was downright miserable.
Took me a few years to get the consistency starting with the basics.
