OK, a middle of the night thought that popped into my head last night. (While you young guys are soundly sleeping, us old guys are awake thinking of chit like this for your benefit.
-- well and going to the bathroom too.)
Does the butcher paper act like a blotter and absorb the juices thus drying the meat out more? Or does the breathability or the paper make it so no juices want to come out?
I know some people even go so far as to wrap with saran wrap before they foil to rest the meat in order to prevent moisture loss, so the blotter issue seems to come into play.
