I have way overcooked a butt (fell asleep) and it was still fine. But I planned to make pulled pork anyway. I have overcooked several briskets a little and they were fine too for eating pulled brisket. Probably less forgiving than a pork butt though. The hard part for me is cooking that brisket right up to maximum tenderness while still being able to slice it without it falling apart. Falling apart brisket is not good for a comp. Kind of like fall off the bone ribs. fine to eat. Not desirable for competition. I have never over cooked a butt or brisket to the point is was ruined for eating..... yet.
