I love smokin in the winter! (brisket question)

Henaple's post about brisket chili yesterday motivated me.  So, today I am smoking a brisket and the temps outside are a balmy 0 degrees.  My question is, do I need to foil it?

    Nothing like being able to warm the hands on the exterior of the egg during these frigid temps!

    O my, I just opened it for the first time today.  Internal temp is 175.  Looks like a black ball of amazingness.  I hope it tastes the same!
