Your best comp meat....

Postby bruno994 » Wed Aug 07, 2013 4:31 pm

What is your best comp meat? In other words, which one of the three meats are you the most confident in everytime you cook. And why? What separates you from the rest of the field?

I like cooking it all but Ribs are the easiest and most consistent for me. No 2 briskets are the same and sometimes its hard to hit the exact perfect temp on the chicken within the turn in window! :roll:

We are very consistent with brisket. It's probably the first thing I learned to cook on a pit.

Anyone here that knows me or has cooked around me would probably agree, beans, ribs, an chicken in that order. I can't cook a comp brisket to save my life. I am back to drawing board.

I guess trial an error and asking alot of questions!!! Most people will give you tips and advice small things you can expand on.

Butt and ribs (Worst IBCA placing of 6th for those). Keep on getting paid in chicken, but I am not exactly sure why lol. Brisket hits in IBCA, but not in KCBS. Guess we don't jazz it up (make it sweet and use Asian spices) enough for KCBS.

Looking forward to the redneck cooking class to make the butt and ribs even better.

I have had the most luck with brisket. I learned by cooking a lot of briskets, paying attention to details and making my own rub. We are starting to have better luck with ribs also but I am not satisfied with our process yet. I have made progress with chicken but feel I still have a long way to go.
I don't think there is any substitute for experience, you must cook to get better! And if something is not working don't be afraid to change it. :D

Brisket and beans. Those are my strongest categories, and oddly enough the only ones that I have a set recipe. I hadn't changed my brisket recipe in about 3 years and beans in 2. Ribs and chicken I kinda fly by the seat of my pants. I have a chicken recipe that hits more than it don't but for some reason I'm not smart enough to run it every time.

Sounds like we all need to cook somewhere and hash this out. Lol

Several of us saying the same thing.
