Have two 5# butts from Costco that I need to prepare for tomorrow evening. I am planning on getting up at 5 and getting them on by 6 AM. Figure they will take between 7 - 10 hours at 240 - 250 dome. These will be the first butts on my egg. I believe I am going to use a drip pan without water that is placed on foil balls on my placesetter. Any other suggestions? I seem to get the impression that water is not needed in the drip pan. Is that correct?
