What Butcher paper does Aaron Franklin use for brisket?

I noticed Aaron Franklin using brown butcher paper to wrap beef brisket on his video. Is that peach treated paper?

    He uses 18" pink butcher paper from ABCO in Austin. It's plain paper with no coating of any kind. Grease soaks through it almost instantly.

    Awww....and I thought it was made with all the lost hopes and dreams of everyone who wasn't Ayayron Franklin.  That's just plain butcher paper.  ;)

    I just ordered a roll from ABCO. They said they have been selling that paper a lot since Aaron Franklin posted his You Tube video on brisket.

    If anyone in the Austin/Cedar Park area wants to try the ABCO paper just let me know. It only comes in 1000' rolls and I have about 975' left :)

    I don't think they're asking for too much so calm your tits. :x

    For your information, there are differences. Some paper has a wax coating that can come off on your meat. There are many brands of food grade paper products out there, but there are some that aren't. ABCO carries the paper Aaron uses so why not pick up some if you're in Texas. I know I did! ;)

  • sure why not but is it any different than any other butcher paper w/out wax paper probably not...I am sure if you ask the man himself about his preference he would laugh. He doesn't have a secret his bbq sauce is found in every HEB. The only thing different is the man who has made a living cooking some of the best bbq this awesome nation has to offer.

    I understand it's similar to other food grade butcher papers. Would he laugh, probably not since he does have a preference. He only buys ABCO Pink butcher paper so I'm sure he thinks the quality is top notch.

    You seem to have everything figured out, so I eagerly await to see your non-mediocre brisket thread! ;)

    Never claimed to cook an excellent brisket which is why I posted that discussion. This forum is to help people and I just thought it was funny that we are talking about the butcher paper a famous chef uses. Makes more sense to me to talk about the woods he uses and what temp does he pull brisket. That's just my opinion though!

    No problem...I have to find some way to contribute! In this case, I was bored and wanted to provide some senseless entertainment. ;)

    I found an interesting item about the "Pink" butcher paper. This is from their web page.

    http://www.oren-intl.com/food-service-paper/

    CounterKraft™ Pink Butcher Paper  

    PinkButcher
     
    CounterKraft™ Pink Butcher Paper is made to the same exact standards as the CounterKraft™ White Butcher Paper.  The pink color dresses up the look of sandwiches, fresh meats, poultry and fish.
     
    CounterKraft™ Pink Butcher upholds tradition when used as a sandwich wrap and adds a mark of distinction to the wrapped item so it stands out from other wraps. Standard basis weight is 40#. 

    Seems as long as it is 100% FDA Food Grade, the color is to enhance the visual appeal.

  • Resurrecting an old thread to ask a question.

    Anyone think a paper grocery sack could be used as a substitute for plain butcher paper? Think it would hold up, or would it more likely disintegrate all over the meat?

    I'd say no. Imagine it would break up like toilet paper, and doubt you really want the grocery sack flavor.
