Default Burnt Ends

We have hit a stall with our brisket, finishing top 20, but can't seem to break the top 10. Do you think burnt ends are a must in order to do well at comps? How many top 5 briskets include burnt ends?

Burnt ends, or some variation of them, are always good eats.

But, they have to be cooked well enough to get a high score from the judges.

We have used lots of variations of chopped, sliced, chunked, and burnt ends with mixed results.
Seems like we had to cook the meat right for the Judges to like it.
Go Figure......

One of the highest scores (but not placings) for brisket was just slices that run all the way across the box and were (apparently) cooked well.

How many of you burnt end turner-inners (is that a word?) are actually making burnt ends (separating the point and putting it back in the cooker to continue cooking) vs. turning in chunks of either the flat or the point (no additional cooking)?

Without additional cooking, they'd jsut be chunks of flat or point.

Is KCBS thinkin we need a re-cook rule in place here too?

Come on Rub. You know what burnt ends are.

I'll show you how to make burnt ends if you give me a few winning recipes.

Burnt Ends, I have played with them in the past. But a good brisket is still a good brisket with out them. So no we do not use them.
