Beef Brisket Burnt Ends

Brisket burnt ends have suffered from a lack of appreciation over the past year since other forms of burnt ends have become internet viral sensations. This serves as an exercise to re-pay homage to the original burnt ends. The ones that don’t have to be specified by the cut of meat. Everything else is simply just an imitation and for good reason. Imitation is the highest form of flattery and there is a distinct reason why burnt ends have remained one of the most sought after BBQ delicacies for decades.
