Thanks for taking the time to write this up. I have been "practicing" brisket every weekend. This is the part I have the most trouble with. Are you probing the thickest part of the brisket meaning through the flat and point together? I have tried temps from 195-215 and I can never get the flat to feel like melted butter. The point is tender and where the flat meets the point is pretty tender but the end of the flat will never get super tender. Thanks for the tips
