For brisket internal temp is a guide.   For any tough cuts for smoking, you want it to cook until fork or probe tender.   The probe should go into the meat with little resistance.  195 F or 90 C is a good guide to start checking for tenderness.    Probe tenderness is different for each piece of meat.   I cook my briskets usually to 203-205 F.

Yes.   But make sure itís probe tender.  If itís not cool 1/2 hour longer and recheck.
