Brisket, Foiled or Not

My first brisket is on the Egg and looks great. Went on last night @ 9:00 and now sits at 177. Wondering whether it should be wrapped in foil for the last hours. Try foil with ribs and it works great. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.[p]Jim

    JC,
    Some wrap to finish the cook, but I wrap in foil after in comes off the cooker, and hold in a warm cooler for 1-6 hours. It is really your preference.[p]Adding some liquid (like beef broth) to the foil package will help keep the meat more moist. Again...not necessary, but your call![p]Have fun. Wish I were there!
