Brisket Bark Help

I am doing my second or third brisket and am having trouble getting a good black barky exterior. My current setup is inverted plate setter with drip pan of water and beer mix. Brisket on lowest grid and two pork butts on top. The brisket rub is half cow lick and half turbinado. The Guru is dialed in at 235. The butts have coarse grind DP and yellow mustard. Should I just leave the drip pan out next time? Is the temp too low? The butts don't have that much bark either. I just foiled the brisket with some apple juice but plan to take it back out onto the grid in a few hours.[p]JNK
