I've seen a lot of discussion about foiling after a cook and wondered if anyone other than me has had a problem with this.
The problem I have is that after foiling, by the time it's ready to eat.. I notice many little holes in the foil.. as if something is dissolving the foil.
For instance, a butt.. I coat it with my rub which contains a lot of salt and other common spices.. nothing else that would cause holes by puncture. The foil I use is heavy duty foil from Costco. I doubt it is the salt that is dissolving the foil.. but possibly something in the smoke is acidic???
What I do now is to wrap the butt with heavy duty plastic wrap followed by the foil.
