I'm doing one now trying to get the temp up to 350 now it's stuck at 280 now, I'm going to wrap it and put it in a cooler for a hour on this brisket.

Edit UDS is at 300* brisket is at 70*

I'd like to do longer than 45 mins but everyone is always so darn hungry when the brisket gets done.

I have trouble resting past 30-45 minutes. Just like Al said, too damn hungry to wait.

I try to target my cook so that I have at least two hours to rest it. If I end up with a little more or less, it still usually tastes pretty darned good :)

I like to wrap in a foil, towel and cooler for at least an hour. I plan for a two hour rest as well, it just seems like it works out well for me.

I aim for two hours, but that rarely happens. It's really a matter of when the brisket's done and when it's time to eat (or turn the box in).
