12 hours for an unwrapped 11.5 lb brisket is not extremely long if your temps were dropping as much as it sounds like they were. That kind of time in a kettle with the cap up (fire close to meat) without wrapping will definitely result in some hard spots around the edges. I prefer not to wrap my brisket, but with your cooker and the time you started it would have been the best solution. I would seriously practice on some lesser cuts of meat before you put the 14 lb prime through the same treatment.
