Select Packer Brisket tips?

I found a few packers at Wally World last week and got the biggest one, just over 10lbs. I have always looked for choice briskets in the past, and have had good luck, but this was like $2.59/lb, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

Any tips on getting this to come out tender and moist? It's pretty flexible.....I can bend it in half in the cyrovac. It's from Excel packing.

I want good bark.....so no foil or braising if possible. I plan on smoking it at 230° grate temp. Would a bit higher help?

Thanks!
