Injected and treated like a brisket

Foiled at about 170

I've got to say I was impressed. Had to take it high to get tender. 210+. Amazingly moist and tender. Flavor was somewhere around the best non wagyu brisket flat I've done. Completely different than a grilled tri tip. Nice change of pace. Took maybe 3-4hr. Can't remember

One of the worst BBQ mistakes I ever made was to inject a Tri-Tip.
Now that may have been because I did not inject it with the right stuff but I swore that I would never again inject a Tri-Tip with anything. It completely changed the flavor of what I love about Tri-Tip. I also cooked it like I would every other time to med rare. I prefer beef rare and brisket does not exactly shine when cooked to med rare. I applaud your courage to cook a perfectly good TT to 170* then wrap in foil But I would not be able to do that.
Perhaps if I tasted it, I would change my tune.
BTW, I have tried to cook brisket to med rare. Tastes fine but not fun to eat.
