Trying the butcher paper wrap. Had a friend get me a big ole roll from Sam's, was a lot cheaper than the roll of foil he got me too!!
The 2 racks of babies got Memphis dust rub, butcher paper wrap, and sat in the cooler over night!
The (2) 14+ lb briskets ($2.48lb) briskets from HEB got NO TRIM with S&P rub, butcher paper then in the cooler.
I recently bought 2 XL Arctic Ice paks and 2 L Arctic Ice paks for my boat coolers for fishing. They work great! I can refreeze them and they hold up so far for 7 days in my yeti. But it's not mid summer yet. See how they do over the summer. WAYYY less mess than ice!!!
Put the babies on the top and the briskets one each to a shelf with some pecan chunks in the cast iron skillet.
Butcher wrapped the babies at 2 1/2 hours and put em back on.
Butcher wrapped the briskets at 150*.
You can see the babies have been wrapped awhile, no worries of flameups. just browns the paper up!
When I 1st fired it up, it went to about 245*, so I just left it. Been having REAL GOOD briskets with keeping it more consistent than so much worry about the temp. But do stick between 215*-255*!!
