It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Spacers for drip pan

Just curious, what does everyone use as spacers between the drip pan and the plate setter for low and slow cooks?

    I use my ceramic BGE feet but rolled up balls of foil will work too.

    But a cookie cooling rack. They cost about $10 or less and are perfect.

    You need a spacer? I didn't have any and usually, just set the pan on the platesetter. Maybe I'm missing something here.

    Did it help that I foil the pan? Maybe it reduces the heat conduction? I've never had to put a spacer and so far, have never had issue with it.

    Most low and slows you may get away with it. For a 400 roast or chicken the drip pan can get a bunch in it and if it scorches, not good. 
    I use the Dollar Store cooling racks, cheap and works very well, or some old tile strips. Anything to get air between the pan and the setter.

    7 yr old BGE feet. The funny thing is I really never knew what purpose these things had till I started reading here.

    I just use 3 - 4 rolled up bits of aluminum foil. Cheap and easy.

    I have been "in violation" of the rules, because i am allowing the dripping to burn up when hitting the foil i have laying on top of the platesetter............
