What am I doing wrong? Smoked my second brisket with this paper overnight and it stuck very bad to the paper. Any suggestions?

This may be due to technique. There are so many ways to smoke a brisket that it’s hard to guess what you may be doing to cause this. It’s recommended to trim the fat well before seasoning it. Then get your smoker up to your preferred temperature before you put the brisket in. Then keep that temperature consistent until you get the internal temperature of the brisket up to between 160* to 175*. Then take it out, wrap it in a few layers of paper, and stick it back in until the internal temperature of the brisket gets just over 200*. Then pull it out and let it rest in an empty cooler or a microwave for an hour or so. Then it should be perfect. I recommend researching multiple methods online because, everyone is a little different. It takes time to master the art of smoking. Some say you never stop getting better! Just keep trying! Good luck!

Is the pink parchment paper treated with quilon?

Great question! Our paper is uncoated and contains no quilon.

What Is Your Butcher Paper Made Out Of?

All of our butcher paper is made of durable 40# weight Georgia Pacific paper with superior wet and hold strength, perfect for smoking and storing meat.

Other than color is there a difference between your pink and brown kraft butcher papers?

Great question. Both rolls of butcher paper are made from the same top quality paper, however there is coloring added to the pink paper. Though subjective, many customers prefer this color cosmetically as basket/tray liners or sandwich/cooking wrap, but many claim it makes meat that bleeds look less like blood and more like liquid or moisture during storage. Hope this helps!
