If it isn't against the rules and it is a technique that allows for a better product, I personally don't find it lacking integrity.
And the episode of where are they now for season one would be great! Obviously Tuffy Stone and Myron are judges for Pitmasters. I would love to see how the others are doing in their competition/professional career. I also want to know if the rookie was able to figure out the whole competition bbq scene and do better than he had been.
It's not against KCBS rules to separate the point from flat in brisket. The parting rules for pork don't apply to brisket. I think this is a little touchy since there is a belief that some teams are parting pork in comp's today. The rules are supposed to change next year so it will be a non-issue.
