Brisket question

I want to cook a brisket on real low temp, say 225. What's a good internal temperature to shot for if I want it extremely tender? Also, any good suggestions for rubs? I cook pork all the time, and now want to tackle the brisket!! Thanks!!

    195-205 temp. Ultimately when a probe moves through the thickest part of the flat like "butter".

    S&P is the traditional rub. Captain Brisket(Centex) uses Byrons butt rub to get chicks. Oak for smoke or those dudes from Texas will come looking for you. In kilts.

    +1 on Eggcelsiors comments, S&P is great I have also used dizzy pig cow lick 50\50 with turbino raw sugar. That gives it a great bark. I inject with au jus prior to rub as well.

    I must say I am a new convert to Bad Byron's, but that stuff is GREAT! It goes on brisket, pork, popcorn, fries, ANYTHING. Highly recommended.

    Cheers

    Half salt and half pepper is tastier well beyond what you think. Give it a try.

    @Black_Badger Do you add anything else with Bad Byron's to use with briskets (ie. pepper, etc.)? Or do you use it exclusively?
