In the past I have had problems with over cooking brisket because I did not vent it long enough before I wrapped it to rest. It would probe just fine then I would wrap it and put it in a cooler only to find out it kept cooking and fell apart when I sliced it. Now I let it sit un covered for at least 10 min or so.

Funny side note - at a comp last year we over cooked our brisket - I had a nightmare of a time getting 6 slices out of a 14lb packer to turn in and we finshed 11th in brisket out of 98 teams - go figure.
