Score This Brisket Box
I had some time on my hands this weekend to do a brisket dress rehearsal. How would you score the entry?

Wow! 9!

But can you do it with no sleep while pickled?

Just kidding. Very nice looking box. Looks juicy and has a wonderful (I know that it shouldn't count) smoke ring.

Without reading others posts, I gave it a 7. I was taken aback by the symetrical look of the the brisket and the burnt ends. Just didn't look like a natural cut or looking piece of meat. Not sure if the big chunks on top did anything for me or not, I finally decided to to not count up or down for it.
Good smoke ring, and looks moist. The box looks pleasing to look as well.

the parsley is a bit thick. thats my gripe

the pre trimmed squared off slices are interesting. the uniformity of the placement draws attention to where it is not uniform, such as the size difference of the ends in the upper right corner and the width of the garnish along the top as compared to the bottom. there seems to be some rub coming loose on slice one and three and i would try to cover more of the box with meat and use a thinner border of garnish. aside from this i think it looks really good and even though i am not qualified as a judge would give you an eight!

WOW!! 9

Almost TOO pretty, if that's possible.

First time I have seen a smoke ring almost all the way around a slice of brisket.
You must have shaved that fat cap pretty thin to get that.
Looks nice.
I like the way the meat sets up on top and is front and center.
Not sunk down in a bowl of salad.

Great job!

Thats the best damn brisket box I ever saw.

This is why I would be so frustrated if I did comps. It's more about what the garnish looks like and if your meat is "even."

Dude that stuff looks fantastic and I would be proud to chomp down on it. And you wouldn't even need to give me any dang parsley.

I would score it a 9.......looks great!

I went 8. Something a little too unnatural about the shape of brisket. I would also try and pick off some of the specs on the meat. That being over picky, but the meat does look juicy and tasty.

I said '8'... the meat doesn't look moist, it doesn't make me want to reach into my screen to have some... but looks very good.

I find no fault with your entry.... 9

cmcadams 05-05-2008 08:23 AM

I thought finding no fault would = a 6 :)

Looks like a 9 to me based on the other boxes folks post to be rated. Nice smoke ring, it looks moist based on the picture my screen shows. I also like that it isn't being hidden by the garnish, but rests on top.
