saran wrap

  1. Just wondering where I could get some extra wide saran wrap. It makes a lot easier for me to wrap butts or ribs. Thanks

    Not sure how wide you are looking for, but Sam's, Costco and BJ's here carry 18". Sometimes you can get 24" from them.

    I like a different wrap?

    Check out stretch-tite.  Available at Costco under the Kirkland co-branding name.

    I find it much better. My rolls are 11 7/8 inches wide.

    In the link below they show another product called freeze-tite which is 15 inches wide.  They claim it is twice as thick as stretch-tite.  I don't see the thickness listed for their products.

    I cannot vouch for freeze-tite, but I have used stretch-tite for years and I really like it. I will be looking for freeze-tite only because it is a little wider.  I do all my freezing now in vacu paks.  For many years, tho, I used stretch-tite and froze food in zip type plastic bags with good success. 

    I am not in the habit of hawking a particular brand, and others on the forum will probably have other suggestions for you to consider?

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I'm with Venture on the stretch tite. While it's not as wide as food service wrap, it's just as good in every other way. It's bugged me for years that restaurants have this awesome cling wrap but the commercial brands for the home kitchen are a complete joke. Another nice thing about the stretch tite is the rolls are huge and last a long time. The 2 pack lasts us a year or more. Plus the sliding cutter is really nice too.
    If you're dead set on the extra wide wrap, check out restaurant supply stores. The rolls are gigantic and will probably be expensive, but should last damn near forever.

    This is what I use, and I like it. I got mine from a resturant supply house in New Orleans.

    Same time I got

    This stuff out lasts the energizer bunny. I seriously can't tell you how long these two rolls have lasted. And that is some seriously thick tin foil. A smart man wears gloves....LOL

    They get the Foamheart 5 gold star recommendation. *****

    I go straight to the catering suppliers here too. Most also sell online and are usually considerably less expensive than retail stores. The also stock the sizes that are useful for the catering industry and not just the convenience of the supermarket shelf.
     
  10. I ended up getting a 2000ft roll yesterday. I told my son he can have the rest of it in his inheritance. lol
