Brisket - Franklin barbaque style - reverse engineering

Hi all,

I want to try to make a brisket "a la Franklin", so im trying to cook-up a how-to. And yes a lot of trial and error attemps :-) (The beautiful thing about BBQ attemps, is that you can eat them :-)

I am trying to figure out the best way in a BGE.

What i have found out via articles, videos etc. with Mr. Franklin is:
1. Use full packer brisket, trimed to about 1/3 inch of fat.
2. Rub: Salt/pepper
3. Smoke: White oak
4. Wrap in butcher paper "at the right time". (Unbleached paper, without wax or sillicone)
5. It takes Franklin 18 hours to do a brisket.

But - there is still a bit of a way to go until we have a guide :-)

My questions are:
1. What would you quess as cooking temp? I have heard everything from 375f down to 200f.
2. When to wrap in paper (aka. at what internal temp do we wrap?)
3. What temp is the brisket done? 185 - 204f?

Without any thing to back this op, i think my first attemt will be:
Cook at 300f at brisket level.
Pull and wrap at 150 internal, lower the BGE temp til around 200 and let it finish.

Any ideas?
