I use a 12" forschner to slice brisket... did the whole electric knife thing before that and didn't care for it. A good sharp manual knife makes a prettier cut of meat than the ripping and tearing from a electric knife in my opinion.

If you cooked comp you would see the other side , with an electric knife.. :lol: :lol: :wink:


I used to be strictly 12" slicer but the more comps I cook the more I see 1st place brisket that is so tender there is no way it could have been sliced without an electric. Especually comps where the ends have to be intact, sometimes the only way to do it is with an electric. I have a cuisinart cek-40, mr twister 9" piranha and a victorinox 12" slicer and a cheapie 12" update. The razor sharp victorinox is no match for my mr twister and a super tender brisket. Sometimes gotta even bust out the cake spatula to get it to the box. Learned a long time ago when we snagged three 1sts in a row with a overcooked that appearance matters very little in Texas comps. Judges just want something that tastes good.
