Unwaxed is the key I've heard.

Uncoated butcher paper will allow the meat to breath while it speeds up cooking time and Keeps the nice firm bark you desire.

Some butcher papers are treated with a coating, some think it is merely a wax coating. The coating may not be wax, but could more likely be a thin polyethylene coating. Either way, wax or plastic coated papers are not really suited for cooking food in them. They are designed to seal the meat in a manner to prevent loss of moisture for short term storage and/or freezing. You do not want to use coated paper, not just because the coating could cook into the surface of the meat, but coated papers will trap the steam the same as foil. So if your only choice is coated paper, stay with foil because they will cook in the same manner.

The preferred butcher paper has no coating of any type and is thicker, denser, and heavier in weight. Uncoated butcher paper will allow the meat to breath while it speeds up cooking time and keeps that bark nice and firm.

That signature update...........:clap2::clap2:. Ha!

Oh and uncoated white is what I have. That's all restaurant depot has, at least the last time I bought it. Takes time to go through 1000ft. They need smaller rolls.

The last paper I bought days it is food grade butcher paper with no mention of coating. Would this stuff be ok to wrap briskets in?

I use paper grocery bags in a pinch, if you can put groceries in them I figure you can wrap meat with them.

That's what I use. Local restaurant supply store had a 24", 800' roll for $25.

I may be a little "out there" on this one, but I don't even like the white paper because of the chemicals they use to bleach it. There are a lot of unwaxxed, unbleached papers available on the net.
