Default Wrapping Process for Comp' Cooking Question

I understand that wrapping while cookin (briskets, ribs, butts) seems to be the norm during contests for tenderness....Honestly when I'm cooking at home I tend to like unwrapped meat better because of the taste factor. But I'd like to know if there are a number of teams having success without wrapping during the cooking contest....Don't mean to ask for anyones comp' secrets...just was wondering about the wrapping deal...Thanks in advance for your input!!!

All I can say is remember that you're not cooking for yourself.

I foil my brisket flats...nothing else. I may try it next comp with ribs...but usually my ribs place well enough without foiling.

Wrap is the way to go, there are many advantages to wrapping. Many less advantages to not wrapping.

Does anyone wrap with butcher paper instead of foil for comps? Seems like it may have some advantages.

We'll wrap with both, especially since RobKC just picked up a 1,000 ft of pink butcher paper.

And I hear his response now "It said it was red, not pink"
