    I use my V-Rack for all my pork butts and roasts to elevate them off the grate to use a drip-pan.  I also saw an interesting thread recently where someone draped a very large brisket over a v-rack so that it would fit in the grill...I thought that was a great idea.

    Whats the difference from that and just putting the drip-pan under the grate on the plate setter?

    Its pretty much the same thing...I just figure since I have one - I might as well use it.

    The drippings can burn if the drip pan is set directly on the plate
    setter and give a harsh taste. I use 4 stacks of three pennies at the
    corners to create an air space which stop the drippings from burning. I
    also line my drip pan with aluminum foil for easier cleanup.

    I usually put the three green feet below my drip pans.  It is a little high, but i just trim the drip pan with my tin-snips.

    That's a cool idea.  I like to use the strained leftover drippings to add a little back to pulled pork so I don't want it to burn.  I also know that I have to check a couple of times over 12 hours to make sure there is still plenty of apple juice or water in the drip pan.  I had the drip pan contents burn a couple of time and the smell is nasty.
