I don't know of one brisket that I have cooked unfoiled that was probe tender at 195. They all have been above 200. More like 205-215 if you get down to it.

A 2-3 hour rest does lots of good. I wouldn't skip it.
And see thats what I was going for.. an unfoiled brisket with a nice bark.. I think I just blew my champagne cork a little too early on this one..

darn me and my impatience!!!!
