you really can't cooler it too long as long as you hold temp pretty well. I've gone 6-7 hours and they were still perfect. I'm guessing it was the origianl cook temp that may have been the issue but these things are finicky. You can cook 2 side by side and they can be totally different. Keep at it and you'll be fine

You should do a few more, your process seems to have been fine.

Getting good 'Q is a skill to practice and learn. One of the reasons I keep detailed logs of each smoke is so that I can analyze what I've done and how I can improve the next time. I'm pretty happy with the progress I've made on my cooks and a lot of that results from reviewing my notes before every cook and making a plan to improve.

Don't be disappointed if your first cook does not come out to be everything you had hoped for. The results you will eventually achieve will make the effort you put in now well worth while. (If you learn from each cook that is less than 100% successful.)

Enjoy the journey!

Maybe next time try a larger packer. I think the larger the size of the brisket, the greater the margin for error there is.
