What do you look for in you brisket that tells you that it could be 1st place
I know now when I have good chicken, pork, or ribs before turn in. Brisket on the other hand, besides moisture I am not sure I know. My question is, what is it that would make you think you'll get a great score in brisket? Do you know before you cook that you have a great piece of meat? I think I understand like I said before that it should be moist and tender, but crust or taste I am not so sure. Do you have to use finishing spice or rub? How about sauce. Not having burnt ends hurt you?
