Cookoff Brisket......

Postby Southern Pride BBQ » Mon May 20, 2013 8:41 am

I have placed several times in the past with this brisket, this weekend we had 32 teams at Clifton and I didn't make final table (18 teams) out of 32 with this brisket....... kinda upsetting but that's the way BBQ cook-offs go......

Now, I'm gonna put this charcoal in a nice Geometrical shape, called a PILE......

Man the texture and tenderness was spot on, I guess it got on the wrong table....... I'm not gonna change anything about it might just win with it next cookoff.....

Looks good to me too.

You may want to sit out a comp. and judge instead. I would try to judge final tables that way you can taste what the top teams are turning in. A lot of good comp. cooks are also head judges or assistants so they have a good idea of what's winning.

I wouldn't change a thing. I walk regularly in brisket and then, BAM, one cook off without a walk and then next comp, it's back to buisness. I think it's just a matter of what table it landed on.

ANother question: I've heard both ways, but do yall leave the fat on or trim it off the brisket? I've always trimmed some of it off, but I don't wanna take it all off because some people like the fat ???

Wrong tables do happen and it is usually when you really think your turn in is the best you ever made lol.

I trim the fat to 1/4- 1/8" ... but I do not remove it completely. IMO a little fat= flavor
