    Sauce your brisket?

    I love the flavor that a drum gives a good brisket!!
    Do the experienced comp cooks sauce your brisket (kcbs) or let the natural flavor of the meat and au jus shine thru?

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Thanks.
    In all fairness Big Poppa, I plan to use this information against you. Last April you came to Salt Lake City and kicked my butt at the Sams. You took 1st in Brisket and I placed 11th. (To be fair tho it was my first contest ever.)
    Hopefully they have the Sams in SLC again and I can get a little closer to your score...

    Thanks again

    So do you guys think it would be a good idea to slice the brisket, dredge the slices in au jus, then sauce the top after it is boxed?
    I was also thinking no sauce on the BE's.
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Brad

    you should always give consideration to where the judges tongue is most likely to hit first! Appearance is the least weighted scoring criteria.
