I had commented on your great lookin' bark previously. I now see the pink butchers paper. Could this have something to do with your results?
What temp did you use?

225 unwrapped 8-9 hours , 250 wrapped another 8 hours. If you look at my cooks I wrap anything low and slow in butcher paper, it keeps it moist and the bark stays set.

I watch a lot of Harry Soo and follow his pointers for low and slow.

Obviously his pointers work well. Your results speak to that.
Thanks for the details. I just finished 20 lbs of butts on my WSM and they turned out well but nothing like yours. I used foil for the wrap and it definitely kills the bark. I've used the pink paper on briskets but never on my butts. Think I'll change this.
Cheers...

I can’t say enough about the butcher paper, and I am learning to wrap when the bark is ready and disregarding temp.
I feel I’ve been pretty lucky but at the same time no real issues on those 3 long cooks, and the results have been mind blowing.
The rubs were pretty basic except for the pulled pork, that’s a combo of a few Oakridge rubs i had to use up Before they went bad.

THANKS!

I've never wrapped pork in butcher paper either. Do you spray it or add any liquid before you wrap with butcher paper?

I spray every hour or 2 until I wrap, I haven’t added liquids.

I'll have to try this method next time. I always wrap with foil and while the meat comes out amazing, it sure doesn't have the nice crispy bark.
