What width paper?
What width of butcher paper is best for wrapping brisket when doing Hot and Fast?

I have only used 18" because Sam's sells it. It works fine, though 24" would be easier to wrap.

I use 24". You will have to overlap 2 pieces of 18" or 24" to wrap a full-sized packer. However, with a 24" roll you only need a single piece to wrap ribs and butts.

You can use a single sheet of 30" butcher paper to wrap a brisket, but a 30" roll becomes a pain to store and transport for me.

What ever size roll you decide to get, I highly recommend getting one of these:

I like the 18"

Its the perfect width to cover the counter or the king size cookie sheet I use to prepare my meat on

I just cover the area with 2 layers of butcher paper, makes for easy cleanup

I also have and use the 18", but I find that sometimes it's not wide enough, depending on the size of the meat, like brisket.

I still use it and just roll the meat up "diagonally". I think I'd prefer the 24", but I'm not gonna buy more until the roll I have is gone.

I like 24 my countertops are 24 wide so I use it in my prep are for easy clean up too.

I overlay two sheets of 18" and it works for me.

thanks guys, I was thinking I was going to have to buy a roll, so I could roll with the Hot and Fast method on my next brisket. My landlord, is a butcher, and when I was talking to him about my BP dilemma, he said he would hook my up with as much as I needed.


My wife liked the brisket from last weekend so much, she wants one done for Thanksgiving, so I will try Hot and Fast as outlined by Bludawg
