Walk into sams, go to meat section, pick up pre-sliced brisket/15 minutes. Place on smoker to add "smoke flavor" for 30 minutes then call it my own. ...

Hey BBQMAN.

I've done only a couple of comps a year these past few years. I'm just too busy, but it's very relaxing and enjoyable when I get out and do one. Don't quit totally!

I'm with BBQMAN. 6-8 oz. should be plenty with two meats. I'd be more on the 6 oz. end.

Hey miked.bbq,
If you mean by "diced" as in chopped beef, then I'm closer along the lines with dietzy. I calculate a 55% yield (although mine is usually 60%ish). Most standard buns will get ...
