One thing in favor of a low and slow is building the bark. Hot and fast has a decent bark, but I think low and slow, depending on the rub, develops a better bark.

IMHO Hot and Fast is ALMOST as good as low and slow for briskets.
You can and do get a "little" better bark low and slow. My new smoker likes to run at 275 to 300 range so I adapted to hot and fast and won't look back. However after my first 2 h/f cooks I found a compromise method. I start with a small clean fire for 1 to 1 1/2 hours then build it up to 275 - 300. I switched to using butcher paper instead of foil or pans. I do double wrap in paper a little later than before usually @ 170-175. Then let brisket cool unwrapped for 20-30 minute bark firms up better. Then foil and rest couple of hours.

Works for me so I am not going back to low and slow. Funny as I swore by low and slow for 40 years.

Hey Texan, do you feel your getting a better bark with the paper vs foil?

I do not wrap ( Paper ) until the bark is to my liking.

Cooking a Costco prime about 50 degrees hotter than usual.
