Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Well, Another BGE lesson learned.
I soaked some Hickory Chips all morning,
cleaned out my Large BGE really good,
built me a nice pile of fresh lump,
brought the fire up to a stable 225,
had my plate setter inverted with grid on top and was ready to go smoking!!!
I had 2 six pound boston butts rubbed down with mustard and my favorite dry rub but when I placed the drip pan onto the grid I let the water tip over and run down on to my beautiful fire!
Oh well, It did not put it completely out but it will certainly set me back... Good thing I am not serving these butts till tomorrow night huh?
Do you guys use a little water in your drip pans?
And what do you use for drip pans? I was using a disposable metal pan.
