Burnt ends actually were the unsellable charred ends that were cut off before the brisket was sliced to sell. They were typically free for the asking. People liked them so much that they started charging for them so fake burnt ends were made by overcooking the cubed up point.
You actually got just what you asked for - real burnt ends.
