The non coated or unbleached paper enhances the appearance of sandwiches, fresh meats, poultry and fish. Butcher paper is most often used in the BBQ scene as a basket/tray liner as well as carry-out wrap for sandwiches and meat. It is also widely used in cooking, and has been a hot item in culinary competitions by chefs and at-home chefs on Food Network shows as an innovative way to smoke meat or for BBQ style cooking. Butcher paper has been featured in many culinary blogs, magazines and websites as a way to cook and smoke meat and for En papillote, a method of cooking in which food is put into a folded pouch & then baked.Why not foil? Foil can be effective for different uses in BBQ but with anything you smoke that requires a wrap of more than an hour imitates a braising effect. While this may be good for ribs, it will make your brisket soggy and destroy that beautiful bark that you worked hard to develop on your BBQ. The main drawback to using foil is that when hot meats are wrapped, the steam cannot escape and any bark that has formed can easily turn to mush. 100% FDA approved Amsha butcher paper won't let the juices from your meet pool together like foil to where your exterior coating becomes soft which happens when you braise meat. Because it is paper, it still allows some interaction w/atmosphere inside your smoker (moisture, heat).
