Don’t give up.
Briskets are cooked in an oven or a smoker after a liberal amount of seasoning. Once the temperature reaches 165-170 degrees Fahrenheit in 6 to 7 hours and hit the plateau, the internal temperature stop rising. Meat cooking stalls at this point. Holding the moisture, braising the meat in its own juices, getting that smoky flavour into the meat without any further darkening of crust is the key for a perfect brisket.
Can we barbecue a perfect brisket with a crispy crust, which is juicy, tender and flavourful without any mess?

Hell Yeah!
Yes!!! It’s achievable with Mighty Dream’s Pink Butcher Paper.

Wrapped barbecuing gives better results.
You can barbecue a brisket - wrapped or unwrapped.  The unwrapped way of cooking generally takes longer than the wrapped ones and could dry up the meat due to longer exposure to heat. Prolonged exposure to direct heat could end up as overcooked & burnt.  Wrapping allows the meat to not loose moisture and get cooked in its own juices – this making it tender and juicy, while the crust becomes crispy. How exactly to do this – that is at what time to wrap the brisket with Pink Butcher Paper is a subject for another blog.

Aluminum Foil won’t work – here is why
Aluminum foil takes less time to cook compared to unwrapped cooking as it traps the heat inside and acts as an oven in miniature.  Wrapping the brisket in an aluminum foil will allow the meat to get cooked in its own juices but since it does not allow the meat to breathe, you will end up a mushy pot roast. Aluminum foil does not allow the meat to breathe, this reduces the smoky flavor getting infused into the meat and also condensed juices could make the meat soggy.

Freezer Paper won’t work either – here is why
Freezer paper are poly or wax coated on one side. Commonly used to wrap the food to be frozen, hence the name freezer paper J. It helps to seal the meat's natural moisture. Freezer paper cannot be used in oven or grill as the plastic or wax coating could melt and get into the meat when heated. The poly or wax coating will trap all the vapor thus making the briskets mushy or soggy. Although Freezer Paper is food grade and can be FDA approved – it contains plastic or wax coating on one side – this makes it unsuitable for barbecuing.
