The popularity of brisket has absolutely skyrocketed in the last few years. Riding the wave created by Aaron Franklin, celebrity BBQ expert and owner of Franklin Barbecue, this classic Texas Barbecue dish is being savored by more carnivores than ever.
Between all of the sizzle and steak, there’s a piece of the puzzle that could be overlooked: perfect brisket actually starts with pink butcher paper, also known as peach paper or barbecue paper.
Here’s what Aaron Franklin has to say about why he uses Pink Butcher paper to wrap his world famous BBQ brisket:
“The briskets need to stay covered so that the bark doesn’t get ripped off of them when they’re being pink butcher paper brisketthrown around. We also wrap them once we know we’ve gotten a certain amount of smokiness. I started using paper because it was cheaper than foil. Foil also gets things real steamy. It’s known as the “Texas Crutch” and it would be embarrassing for me to use foil on briskets… I think foiled briskets end up a little pot-roasty for my taste, and the paper breathes a little better… It’s really there for protection, but an added side effect is that it helps retain moisture.”
