How many of you guys have sweet in your brisket taste profile?

No sweet on our brisket. I have heard tale of a couple of guys that do have a semi sweet brisket (just a rumor, I've never tasted them), and they have pretty good success.

I may be wrong about this, but if I was a betting man I'd bet more on maybe the texture being just a little more loose on the sweet brisket? I know lots of people who cook that way in KCBS comps and their beef is practically teriyaki. But it's just got this velvety texture that's awesome. And my thought on this is that they don't care about the bark, they wrap, wrap early, and basically braise the brisket to finish after a few hours in the smoke. So, maybe it's the soft texture they get by doing that? Anyway...I digress...

Last March at Marksville La., the first place brisket tasted like it had been dusted with sweet & low it was so sweet. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th were salty. Go figure. :lol:

Is it bad BBQ etiquette to ask to taste the 1st place entry?
