View Full Version : Does Butcher Paper help with the stall?

I was thinking of trying my first Butcher Paper wrapped Brisket in the next few days - Does the paper help push it through the stall in the same way as foil does?

It helps but does not speed through as fast as foiling does. The advantage is it permits some breathing which allows a continued smoke penetration and avoids braising the meat. The bark texture is better after a paper wrap IMO.

^Yep, exactly my experience in my RF offset stickburner.

YES....it will help with the stall, but as said above, it is slightly different than foil.

I still use both, depending on what I'm going after.

I wrap my Briskets after 4 hrs in a single layer. In less than 2 hrs they are DONE! So yes it does. The advantage is BP is porous so it breaths allowing steam to escape but keep a moist heat on the surface and the smoky goodness in.

I use butcher paper to control the color and bit, that way I can go with a higher temperature, which allows me to control the stall somewhat. I also go without butcher paper, and there is only a small difference in terms of the stall.
