to help keep it moist in the 15-45 mins it waits for the judges?

I took second place brisket in a practice competition two weeks ago brushing with drippings and other special stuff, of course

If the judges can judge the other categories in about 20 minutes why would the brisket sit for 45 minutes?

IBCA - If good enough, your box will go to a second table of judges known as the final table. So you aim for your food to tast good at room temp.
