    With = no cleaning of pan

  • I go empty drip pan on top of plate setter so I don't have to clean or burn the crap off the plate setter the next time I cook.

  • i just cover the plate setter with aluminum foil and throw it away next day or next cook.

  • I use a disposable foil pan. Easy cleanup.

    After burning all of my wife's baking pans, I have switched to disposable foil pans. Just toss it and be done with it.

    Disposable pan that I line with foil.  I reuse the disposable ones a bunch of times.

  • I glued 4 nuts on the bottom corners of a small cookie sheet that fits inside my place setter.  That way, it sits about 1/2" above the PS.  Then, I cover with foil. I'm cooking a pork shoulder right now, and I hope to use the juices in the pan for adding to the chile sauce for tamales.

    If I use the plate setter, I always put a drip pan on top of it; dry or with liquid.  It makes clean up so much easier.
  • Disposable. Get the cheap ones. Definitely will save you the hassle of wrapping or cleaning.

    What about putting sand in the drip pan rather than water? Someone else asked that and I never did see the answer.
