Make Your Point!
 
How many of you guys sacrifice your brisket points to make burnt ends? My first couple briskets I did this but have been slicing instead the last several cooks. After having sliced point I've never been more excited to shove meat in my mouth. I was curious if people use it for burnt ends because they don't care for the fattier meat or did my "burnt ends" just suck that bad?

My burnt ends are bad too. I LOVE the point. Best part of the brisket IMHO and slicing or, even better, cut it into 1" cubes. The best.

Around here we save the brisket flats for the uneducated, The point is where it's at! Glad you have seen the light.IMO Fake burnt ends are a fad like JT ribs and cooking in foil besides they just suck, not my idea of real BBQ brisket but then I grew up in Brisket central I just know better.:biggrin1:

I don't ever make burnt ends. The fatty point meat is actually my favorite part. Slice and serve.

Oh yeah sliced point is delicious!

Honetly, I only buy and cook briskets so I can eat the point!:becky: Sliced, chopped, burnt ends, doesn't matter...so long as it's good, well cooked point meat!

The flat goes into chili, or the dog bowl, or something else. I don't do as many brisket leftovers any more, so I only eat the good stuff. No time for that other crap.

I'm with Bludawg,

I cook brisket so that, I can have the point. it even influences when I'm selecting a cut.

Wow... This thread is an education in itself. I make a decent brisket (only just recently thanks to the Brethren BTW), but I've never tried to make the point into anything but burnt ends, which never really have been all that great to be honest.

I've made burnt ends (actually they're known as fake burnt ends) a few times and loved 'em, but I'd rather save the trouble and just slice and eat the farking point. Why wait? Plus I'm eating a little healthier and fatty meat is enough without a bunch of add'l salt and sauce (which I almost never use anyway) and whatnot. I'm happy just to stand there, slice, and eat. :thumb:

I also don't care for burnt ends that's a KC thing, I make my lean so moist people forget about the deckle and I eat it:cool:

I've never made burnt ends, I always slice the point. It' the best part of the brisket, more flavorful.

Hey..I just found a meat market that sells points...my next cook will be a couple of points...one to slice and one to make burnt-ends.

Anybody else just cook a point.
