I think you're right on all the meat, bring your own for the comp and take home what they give you. One of my butts looked like it had a brisket fat cap, I cut of off and their wasn't much left. I did take our original brisket back to the cooler truck and got a different one. I think the first one we got was about 8 lbs and 4 were in the fat cap. Not sure we would have even been able to get six slices off the flat.
We were very surprised that the ribs didn't go over well, we thought those were our best. I wish I would have came over to look at yours - I can't believe you had one judge give you a 24 when the next lowest was over 33. Good job on your ribs (2nd place) and overall 4th place finish.
Good to meet you and Rookie 48. Thanks for the tips from both groups. Great time
