I was super bummed last week when I made Brisket that I didn’t take the time to make some Burnt Ends with the Point of the cut. But everything always comes full circle! I was at a buddies house Friday night enjoying a ice cold Coors Light when he mentions that he has 4 Briskets he needs to cook because he over bought some and they were never froze. He said to grab one on my way back to my truck.
I got to his garage and opened his fridge expecting to see a couple 4 lb cuts in there. Instead he has 4 what I would guess would be 16 lb untrimmed Briskets. I picked the one that I thought looked best and went home and starting trimming. I managed to cut the whole piece into 2 nice Briskets and 1 smaller long cut.
I took almost 1 entire Brisket and dedicated it to making Burnt Ends. Those really are my favorite part of a Brisket! So good. I start buy cubing the meat into small roughly 1″ squares. I throw them all into a shallow disposable tin pan and I coat the entire thing with some BBQ sauce.
When you pull them out the tops of the meat will look Burnt and that’s how you know they are done. Grab a toothpick and start plucking them out of the pan to eat, make a sandwich whatever you heart desires! Just don’t miss out on the Burnt End experience!
