    Where are you guys buying your butcher paper? Seems that no regular grocery stores sell it any more.

    Do you have to go to a specialty shop to get it?
     
  2. Costco

    Cash & Carry

    Smart & Final

    Not sure of the stores in your area, but all of the above carry it in the SF Bay Area.

    I order it online. I looked locally but I either couldn't find it or they wanted way too much money for it.

    Never got any there but the local sporting goods stores carry it, Bass Pros, Cabela's, etc.

    I was trying to source something locally, since I'm locked and loaded with a brisket for smoking tomorrow. I guess I'll go with foil again.

    I'll check that out! Doing one next weekend and was going to ask my butcher if I could "borrow" a few feet to try instead of foil. If it works better imo I know there to go! Sam's also has it, but it's a huge roll at about forty bucks.

    Saw some at SAMs earlier today
     
  10. The sausage maker or  Cabella's under freezer paper.  Have them over night or express.  In a pinch use parchment paper.

    Is that stuff safe to use for food?

    I always figured it was geared towards art projects and painting sorority signs and stuff. Might have some kind of coating on it? Or otherwise not appropriate for food usage?  [​IMG]

    Butcher paper was designed for wrapping meat....

    I looked into this awhile ago. Found this...  http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-butcher-paper.htm  Looking at other info, this paper vs that, can be argued all day. Just like Galvanized metal or not, PVC Pipe is food safe or it's not...If there is a doubt, buy from a Restaurant supply. Just offering an option...JJ.
