I know, full of questions, but, I'm getting ready to do my yearly tamale making (15-16 dozen) and have always used the husks and was just curious.

I used corn husks. Never have tried the paper. I think part of the taste comes from the husks. I would think the only thing more you would have to do with the husks is soak them but I do that in the sink while I'm making the masa. You just got to remember to spread the masa on the slick side of the husk. I guess paper wouldn't matter which side but I don't know.
It ain't real Q until that precise moment, while watching the sunrise through a wisp of sweet smelling blue smoke, that a tough brisket finally surrenders itself to the gentle heat of an all wood fire and becomes a tender, juicy, smokey masterpiece.
