For the brisket, I can remove from the smoker, separate the point from the flat, wrap the flat and return it later to the smoker. As for the point I can make burnt ends immediately.

I am correct in both cases?
Yes. To build on what DMP said, it's not just the money muscle that can't be removed, but you can't part out the butt in any way and put it back on the cooker. So you can't take the money muscle off when it is done and put the rest back on either.

I agree with the other two posters, read the rules yourself, and at your first contest after the cooks' meeting stay and listen to the CD.
