Meat smoke

Not sure where to put this discussion but here goes.  Every time I cook sausage on the Egg I get that nasty acrid smoke flavor from burning fat falling on the coals. I'm giving the coals plenty of time to burn in so I'm pretty sure that's not it.

Anyone else getting this problem and maybe have a solution?

    Grid on the fire ring, 350-450

  • I would try raising the grid to at least the felt line and try to hang out around 400*. That is how I do any kind of link type sausage

    How do you set a drip pan without the plate setter?
