When we ‘create” our burnt ends, we will cube or chunk the point then season/sauce and place back on the smoker.
So in order to cook everything as we normally do. We would separate the flat and point when it was done. Then throw the burnt ends back on the smoker for awhile.
Can we do that and place in one box? I didnt think you could do that in a contest.
(Did I explain my question correctly?)

Paydabill is correct. According to the rules:
PORK: Pork is defined as Boston Butt, Picnic and/or Whole
Shoulder, weighing a minimum of five (5) pounds. PorkCorned beef is not allowed.
shall be cooked (bone in or bone out) and shall not be parted.
BEEF BRISKET: May be whole brisket, flat, or point.
It's only the Pork that cannot be split or parted...
I split my brisket before it even hits the cooker....
