KCBS Comp rules

Is it permissible to trim pieces from the smoked brisket and saute them with onions in a skillet over a charcoal fire to make a finishing sauce?

I have never judged a contest but I am a certified judge. I would say that your sauce can be made how ever you want to make it. With that being said, remember that it is a meat contest. Not a suace contest.

Yes, but the sause must be applied to the brisket, and not pooled in the turn in box, say for dipping.

You can absolutely use a charcoal grill to prepare a finishing sauce for any meat. Remember that you can't use a "chunky" sauce in a KCBS turn in box.

I've heard various rep's talk about the size of the chunks, most seem to use the kernel of corn to a grain of rice size. It's best to talk to the rep and explain what you want to do and what size they will be OK with.

Gotcha on the chunks. Just using meat/onions to get a font for deglazing and a smooth sauce.

I thought so, but I thought It would be best to remind you. The cheap, Wal-Mart immersion blender (motor boat engine) is one of my favorite comp BBQ tools.

Can you use a gas burner like a camp stove to make the sauce?

I would say yes Dave, the prohibition on the use of gas has to do with the cooking of the 4 meat categories and the fact that you can't use gas assist to light your fires while meat is on the pit. I've never heard of any restrictions on the making of or warming of sauce on a separate gas stove or grill.

Here's one for you though, can you use the gas burner, that many off set pits come equipped with to make or warm your sauce while meat is cooking in the pit?

I would say if there is meat in the chamber and the gas assist is in the firebox no...but the fryer on the front like Uncle Happy has yes...

That could be look at as frying and that is illegal, I would not do it.
Frying over any heat source is illegal.
