I give it an 8. Might be a 9 if I was actually judging because you don't get to look at it for more than a few seconds in a real judging situation and I might not notice the smudged bark. You should put a seventh piece in there for the table captain show them a little love !

easy 9.. A 6 ? no way that is average. They took some time and made it purty..
If I had brisket like that, I would hope that it was a 9.

I could not see how to make the box better. Meat was very appealing, 9!

Default Scored the Box

I liked the look of your sliced pieces and parsley in the box. I think the "burnt ends" through off the symetry of the box and may be viewed by people outside your area as strange. You also risk the potential for the large chunks to be evaluated differently from slices. I would rely on slices, the moisture looked great, nice cuts, overall a good looking box. Jmbones

Very nice... I went with an 8. If more meat like that was in the box it would be a 9.

I would give it a 7.

The garnish looks fantastics and overall presentation looks solid but I don't judge up for that. For the meat alone, I gave it a 7 as it looks a bit tough as the muscle fibers don't appear to be broken down. (based on the pictures).

Muscle fibers???? Where are muscle fibers? The following brisket was slightly over cooked and looks very similar to the brisket the poster pictured. While not a great box it scored 2nd to Ique at last years Rock n Ribfest. I just don't see it Vinny. However, I commend you on judging the meat without being influenced by the garnish. Thats the way it should be judged and is the way I was taught at my CBJ class.

On appearance alone, I gave it an 8. The meat looked moist and the box looked really good. I like the idea of putting both slices and burnt ends in the box for presentation purposes. Taste may be a different story, but we cant judge that yet.

In the infoamous words of the Brethren "I'd hit that"!!

Guy - What I mean is that when I look at a slice of brisket and determine if it "looks" appetizing, one of the things I consider is how tender/tough, moist/dry tough it "looks". Tom me, the brisket in question "looks" like it could have been cooked longer and may require a knife to break the meat apart rather than be able to pull it apart somewhat easily by hand or chew off a piece easily.

Two people can look at the same entry and see two totally different things. That's what makes competing in BBQ contests somewhat of a gamble.

You're 2nd place brisket looks good, but it's probable that the same brisket could have not placed as well at a different judges table.
