Cooking butcher paper wrapped brisket — By Marshall Cooper Six years ago, we wrote about cooking brisket wrapped in butcher paper. It continues to be one of the most read posts on this blog. As anyone who cooks knows, the more you cook the more you learn.
That means it has the flat and point still connected. Let the brisket rest on the counter while the pit comes up to temp. For texas brisket you can expect a long cook time, so be prepared to maintain an even temperature for several hours. Once the smoker is stabilized, place the texas brisket fat up on the cooking grate and close the lid.
Throw a few chunks on the fire and kick back for a while. After 5 hours, the outside of the brisket will start to turn dark. In Texas many of the pit masters use Red Butcher Paper to wrap briskets instead of aluminum foil, so I had to give it a try.
The butcher paper allows some of the moisture to escape and prevents the brisket from steaming which produces a better crust bark. Tear off 2 big strips of butcher paper and lay them cross ways on the table. Place the brisket in the middle and wrap with the first layer of paper flipping the brisket.
Bring the next layer up and over and tuck in the sides best you can. It should be laying fat side up the entire time on the pit.
Monitoring the internal temperature of the meat is important now, so stick a probe into the thickest area of the flat right through the paper. Be sure not to go too deep; it should rest right in the middle of the flat.
You can double check the internal temp just to make sure it feels soft.
For brisket you should feel almost no resistance when you stick it with a probe — like your sticking butter! Place the brisket in a dry cooler and close the lid. The rest gives the brisket time to stop cooking and reabsorb some moisture.
For serving brisket separate the point and flat. Cut it into slices and cube the outer edges for burnt ends.Butcher paper is usually colored white or red and made from Kraft pulp. The raw material used for butcher paper made up of pulped wood produced from a technique called Kraft process.
This is a process that retains the cellulose in wood to create stronger products. This is a brisket I did with butcher paper that came out great It was a 13# brisket, I used Dirty Dalmation Rub(Kosher Salt, Coarse Black Pepper,Lemon Pepper) on it and cooked it at * on my UDS.

The other thing I can add regarding the butcher paper is that once you have it on hand, if you're like me, you'll find a lot of uses for it. For example, I use it as my 'tent' when I pull steaks, hamburgers, etc., off the grill. I also use it to line my baking pans when meats are drying in the refrigerator, and to cover meats instead of saran wrap.
