Brisket musings

Newbie to brisket here with some random thoughts/questions after reading many posts.  First off, packer brisket is available at local Sam's Club so no problems on availability.  My question is since I see so many posts regarding splitting the point and flat for burnt ends after the flat is done, would there be any advantage to separating them before the cooking begins in order to allow more surface area for the smoke to penetrate both parts better?   In this instance, if it is possible to cook at a lower temperature for the initial smoking (say 200-210 degrees?) in order to extend the time for connective tissue breakdown in the flat while monitoring it with a Maverick,will the flat dry out too much?  Thanks in advance for your consideration.
