I was talking with a friend about BBQ and he told me that he knows a guy that does in a brown papper bag but does not know how he goes about it. I know that it is being used as indirect heat but thats it. Has anyone ever done something like that before?

Never heard of brown bagging a brisket.

See if you can find out if it's supposed to serve any special purpose. I would think that it would inhibit smoke penetration in a smoker.

I read an article somewhere about doing pork butts in a brown paper bag. I would think the process would be similar.
I will see if I can find it later and post it or a link to it.

I just remembered where I read it. So I deceided to post the link now.
It is right on the front page of the site. An article called "Butts In A Bag!"
I was going to copy and paste it, but thought it better to just post the link.

RichD thanks for the link. That was an interesting article.

I suppose the purpose of the bag method is to retain juices and steam the meat?

I wonder if the bag itsself contributes to the flavor of the finished product?

I would like to hear more about this if anyone has tried it.

I think the bag acts a lot like foil would. I have read several articles on that site and I find that most people there are against the use of foil so maybe this is a way to do the same job just with a different material.
I would also like to hear if anyone has more info on this or has actually tried it.
