Butcher Paper vs. Foil
I have been hearing a lot about using butcher paper instead of foil to wrap brisket in. I was wondering what your guys thoughts are?

RE: Butcher Paper vs. Foil
I don't like the idea over the more concentrated heat of a UDS, butchers paper is more of an offset cooking technique if you like.

Respice, adspice, prospice. Latin proverb.
Respice = you didn't use enough spice the first time! adspice = you ought to add spice, you know? prospice = you should be an advocate for spice!

RE: Butcher Paper vs. Foil
Never heard of using butchers paper. I don't believe I would want to use paper over foil? Is there supposed to be some advantage of doing that?

Okay seeing as how the secrete is out... If you have a really really really tuff brisket that bounces when you drop it on the table and cant even stick a probe in it. You can let it rest for 5 hours wrapped up in paper, and take first place. lol Wink
I could see this working. If you want to steam it. Of course that is what foil does as well. I used to steam trout wrapped in wet news print when camping, and that worked well. Not sure how the wax on the butcher paper will react but I would think it might seal it a little better. Worth a try on a 3-2-1 type cook.

RE: Butcher Paper vs. Foil
There are plenty of videos on youtube about using butchers paper in offset and in brick pits, instead of foil to retain moisture and help to tenderize the brisket, it is also used when holding, to keep a moister atmosphere around the meat.

Funnily the first two I found are using UDS's.

RE: Butcher Paper vs. Foil
I saw it on the no reservations episode of Aaron Franklin. In the video his brisket kind of jiggles like jello. I was wondering if that has something to do with the butcher paper or is it the high quality of meat that he uses?
