Brisket ain't my thing, but I thought Mista's brisket was tasty.

I gave it an 8... toyed with a 7. I am not a judge either, so take it as such.

the slices were not laid in evenly... a little too long, and looks like some fat. and the lettuce was not even either.

I agree with a photo is hard to judge compared to the actual seeing it.


I have learned to look to perfection. That is why I let my wife to the boxes. I do the cooking, she does the detailing.... it works out better for me that way. If it was me, just toss it in the box...

Thought about a 6, but gave it a 7. Looks good, but garnish lacking on right side of box (uneven) and meat looks crowded.....curled to make it fit.

IBCA sure is easier. Seven slices sitting on a piece of foil. Slices parallel to the front of the box. Takes a lot of variables out and it taste and tenderness become more important.

I'm posting without reading beyond the first post, so I'll be curious to read beyond and see where I ended up.

I gave it a 7. The garish is uneven on the right and blocks the meat in the front (in the photo). The meat seems crowded in the box. The slices aren't really uniform.

I don't why this came back up but since it did, here is the brisket from the next contest I did. It was an IBCA contest. This one got 3rd place...

Looks good BM, I like the simplicity of the IBCA box. Let's you concentrate on the meat, which is what it is all about.

Not to beat a dead horse.....but thank goodness for IBCA judging! Who cares whether it is purdy or not!

Neil I would give you a 7 as well, like most of the other replies I think the box could be alittle more organized appearance wise, even out the cuts and make it look more attractive, other then that the meat looks good and moist with a good smoke ring.

I agree with you Curt. After going throught the judging school and hearing most of the judges in training commenting on sauce, even thought they were instructed to judge on the overall taste of the meat, I learned that these individuals are not as big a BBQ snob as I am and will judge things according to the outward taste of the meat. I know lightly sauce all of my contest meat for that very reason.
I personally like the Texas style of Q with no sauce, but if I want to win at a contest I have to lightly sauce it.

I think this is a tough crowd too, I would have given it an 8, I never noticed the "uneven" garnish, I did however notice it wasn't all smudged up with sauce.
I thought it kinda screamed 'eat me'... looking all moist and yummy... but the slices were curled around with some fat hanging out. With that being said, I'd love to try it!

How did you feel about the IBCA box I posted later in the thread?

I think they both looked good but the IBCA one for some reason looks even better to me. After tasting your brisket at Viejas they were all winners in my book but then again I am not a judge...
