I kinda figured as much, but I thought I'd ask anyway.  I'm going with a different plan.

This lumber size is not within the prescriptive code, the hanger that is not listed is also not within prescriptive code. Up to the authority having jursidiction but I would recommend a licensed design professional.

I'm building a patio cover and I need to hang a 4x6 rough joist on a rough 2x8 ledger.  A local lumber yard that sells the rough timber has a nice steel hanger for 4x6 but it's not approved.  I asked the owner of the lumber yard and he said he's never had a problem with that, though I know a lot of these are being built without permit.  As far as I know there has not been an engineering test done on these hangers. I've attached a photo of a very similar design. If I use these am I going to run in to problems at inspection time?

 

Edit:  I could use the Simpson U46R but the timber yard's hanger is nicer looking.
