In my opinion, temperature control is one of, if not thee most important things tn cooking a good brisket. So if you have good control of temps on your pit, you're good to go.
Thanks for noticing

I have an all wood smoker, and controlling the temp can be difficult at times. I believe you have to be carefull on how much u open the door, and how long it's left open. I open to mop or spray every hour... really fast then close it.. Mopping is the key i believe... moisture, moisture, moisture.. When i do this i can keep my smoker over 200... to 225. It is an art of what i have noticed. But you can pick up fast.. Low and Slow and have patience!!! Its not But very fun..

I agree, I used this tutorial and it works. Chris did a real good job with it. After you do a few you can experiment with some different methods, to get it where You like it.

Take your time, and practice. practice, practice!
