What Foamheart said!! Or until you can poke it with a thermometer and it feels like butter. not frozen butter or fridgerated butter, but butter that sits out on the counter or table all the time.
I usually let em go till about 185* then start poking all over every 5*. Last one was reading an average of 204*. The one before was 200*. Just depends on the meat and how it was slaughtered. Go by more of the feel than the temp.
And a 4 lb brisket, that's what we call a steak.
