Loin backs first time using butcher paper and honey hog

Hans61Hans61 Posts: 3,414
Smoking 2 slabs tomorrow. Both honey hog rub and wrapping with butcher paper are going to be new for me.

When I wrap I usually add the brown sugar, honey, and butter holy trinity; but the rub I’ve been using isn’t already sweet. With the honey hog should I hold back on the brown sugar and honey? I don’t want them too sweet. Maybe just a squeeze of parkay? 

Also never used butcher paper to wrap before, any tips? Thinking it’ll go a little longer wrapped up as opposed to the foil wrap. 

Thanks.

  • I'd leave it out and add the brown sugar and honey or molasses to your sauce. 

    Its not overly sweet but there is a hint on there that I could see getting overwhelming if you kept at it.

    @Killit_and_Grillit that was kinda my sense just wondered what others would say, it also made me think since it is my first run with a new rub, I probably should just see what it tastes like on its own before adding stuff

    You ever wrap ribs with butcher paper?

  • @Hans61 I bet you will enjoy it. I mix it and the Honey Hog Hot on most of my pork butts and use it a lot on ribs.

    I just put it on a turkey leg that's sitting out on the Egg right now.

    I ended up doing just a little bit of brown sugar and honey in the wrap

    these were a true 3-2-1 temps ranging from 250-270

    The butcher paper didn’t cook the ribs as fast as foil. Thinking a stall on a butt or a brisket in paper would last longer - will do a sliced pic later

    Sweet potatoe and corn bread muffin sauce on the table was “the next big thing” this was a great meal. The honey hog was nice and mild I’ll do a heavier coat next time

    thanks for looking
