Beautiful job. What's your opinion on Butcher paper vs Aluminum? Better or Not?

Thanks all... A great cook overall and the new pit performed very well in temps ranging from 27 to 47 degrees.

Chuck.

The butcher paper IMO makes for a better finished product... It eliminates the steamy, wet product yet still allows to keep the bark moist and firm. Not to say I'd never use foil again but for what I'm trying to accomplish foil generally won't do that.


Thanks is owed to Donnie (Pitmaster T) for bringing me back to reality a few years ago and getting me to enjoy cooking barbecue again.... I started this hobby focused on the basics, then got caught up in the competition thing for a few years which I gradually began to hate as I was not cooking the product I wanted to cook....but thankfully the last five years I've been able to come back to where I started.

Nice job on the Brisket!! I gotta get a roll of the butcher paper, and try that out.

Can you comment on what all the farm has to offer? I wish i had a place like that near me, i'd probably have to get revolving credit with them....

Very nice! Any comments on how the new vertical worked in comparison to some of your previous pits?

It's solid... cooks just like a Klose.

I'll need more cooks to gauge the insulated firebox, since temps started out in the upper 20's... I didn't count, but over the course of the whole cook including getting pit up to temp, I'd estimate I used 15 split logs (with four of the logs getting pit to temp)... this was holding avg temp.
