Small Brisket - Quick Question

I have a couple of small (fairly thin) flats on the large BGE this morning. After 2 hrs they are up to 167* at a dome temp of 220-240. These guys are just under 4 lbs each and they were all I could find due to waiting too long to look. My question for you brisket eggsperts is "at what temp would you pull these off and put to resting"? Thanks!

    Thanks TB. I didn't think about wrapping them in foil. They have been at 167 for the past 1.5 hrs so I assume they are in the plateau. As small as they are I wasn't even sure they would hit a plateau. I am guesing I wrap the foil around the probe as well and leave in it place. Thanks again for the help.

    Not real encouraging! Just took them off after 5.25 hrs at an internal temp of 204*. I'll probably leave them wrapped in foil and towels and in the cooler for close to 4 hrs before unwrapping and consuming....I can only imagine how tough these puppies are probably gonna be!

    Well the briskets turned out much better than I thought they would. Not as good as the first time but definitely good. Thanks for the tips!
