post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, im new to smoking...anyone know if it is possible to develop bark on brisket after unwrapping post-crutch? Maybe pull and unwrap at 190 and put back on smoker tI'll 205? Or am I too late for good bark? Thanks!

You should have developed good bark before wrapping.

If you like thick bark I wouldn't bother to wrap.

Or if your going to wrap it use butcher paper instead of foil, it will keep the bark from getting as soft.

Thanks Al. Any thoughts on whether or not finishing it unwrapped will help develop color? Sounds like no?

Yes it will give the bark a darker color & firm it up.

Al is spot on!!
By any chance are you cooking with a water pan. That could hender you developing bark.
