Brisket does not have a weight rule so burnt ends does not relate to the pork rule well. keith
The implication of my statement is EVEN IF one believes that the pork should be cooked first, there is nothing that prevents someone from "cooking it" and then grilling it. It was the intention of the board to allow pork to be separated to finish cooking.
If some one "cooked it" before separating it, any one should think twice before calling them a cheater or implying as much. Even if they interpret the rule as strictly as David does (which I can not).
Again, no offense taken or intended.
