Title: Tin foil tears most times... any alternatives?
Post by: csubi on June 23, 2017, 06:09:53 pm
I have hear rumors of silicone grill mat style pouches.  Apparently for steaming.  Anyone know if these exist?

Any other ideas?

Thanks

Have you tried the heavy duty tin foil?

Wrap them looser. It doesn't have to be wrapped tight, just sealed. I wrap the ribs loosely with the first layer and tighter with a second layer.

I use the heavy duty Reynolds Wrap, and like GusRobin says, wrap loosely.
Very seldom get a leak.

When are they tearing; when you wrap or when you are taking them off the trays?

If they are tearing when you take them off the tray, as mentioned earlier double wrap them. When you double wrap, the outer layer may stick the rack and tear, but the inner layer will stay in tack, so you won't loose your juices. If they are tearing when you wrap, I always wrap that first layer taunt. Tight enough, but not that tight that the bones will tear through; and you also need to be careful with the second layer. I warp that layer a little tighter.

Or you can use disposable pans, and foil over the top.
