Uh, price check on isle 9.... 1000' for $31 is just a hair over 3 cents a foot. At 32 cents a foot the roll would be $320.

I looked at that link, and when I pressed "add to cart" to see if they had any specials, a line appeared that said "product not orderable", I guess that means it's not in stock.

Because there are many choices,..... un-coated, sizing added, natural, red, white, etc., I'd call whoever and confirm. White will be easier to find locally, but lets face it..... real barbecuists use the red. And it has tons of uses, from laying out on the counter when you are prepping food or cleaning fish...., to using for absorbing grease off things like fried fish or chicken, to baking in, to wrapping meats for resting, to serving on..... and so on.

Here is the difference between coated deli wrap (or steak wrap) and the plain red paper, the coating is on one side only. And usually the plain is heavier.... I think mine is called 40# paper.

The plain red absorbs grease and liquid over time, but once it becomes saturated,.... it will hold liquids.... but you will always get bleed through. So be prepared for that. I like the 24" wide as you have less seams when wrapping things like ribs or brisket.... and 24" is the width of most kitchen counters, and I lay out a sheet to make clean-up easier. I'm not the neatest guy in the kitchen.
