I cooked my first brisket earlier this summer. It turned out much better than expected, but I didn't make burnt ends mostly just because it was my first brisket. Instead I sliced and froze the point. Today I made some chili for the UofM and MSU game. Easily the best chili I ever made using the left over frozen point brisket. This site helps me seem to others like I know what I am doing with BBQ. I need to make another brisket just to stock the freezer with meat for chili. I just can't seem to find another reasonably priced brisket. I am tempted to check out Costco just for this reason.
