View Full Version : IBCA Competition Brisket Advice

Good evening pit masters!! Maybe someone out there can give me some ideas for IBCA competitions in regard to what the judges look for in taste when brisket is judged!

I have heard several suggestions, but are they looking for spicy, salty, sweet, sauced, or even non sauced brisket slices?

Well I can tell you that down here in the SA area, most don't turn in sweet or sauced brisket. If anything a little salty and savory is what I've tasted the most. It's cooked pretty tender cause it has to be.

Overdone, but not dry. Judges use plastic knives and forks to get their samples. I've seen salty win, I've seen sweet win and I've seen pot roast style win. Depends on that round of judges that day.
