Default Brisket Questions

Just placed my first brisket in the drum smoker.

I have my Maverick probe dead center top/bottom, but where in the brisket SHOULD it be. Thick end, the narrow end of the point, in the middle?

I plan on pulling from drum for FTC at 180.

I put it in the thickest part of the flat. Keep in mind that there is no perfect temperature for brisket. While in my experience it averages around 200, I have had briskets done at much lower and slightly higher temperatures. When the probe slides in like butter, it's done.

Yep, Mister Bob is right. Use the temperature only as a guide. I pull when the probe goes in "like budda" then foil and rest in a cooler for at least an hour. Have fun and enjoy!
