If you are not going to turn in sliced brisket I would expect the scores being down because of the way judges are trained. That being said as a judge trainer I feel that is one a weakness of the class and have talked with Ed Roith about the matter. If sliced, chopped and pulled brisket is a legal turn-in then why would we teach that a chopped and pulled turn-in is inferior.

Right now the way things are done I wouldn't omit sliced brisket from the turn-in but that could change as the training is refined in the future.
