Do y'all clean your drip pans?

I've been using roasting pans to catch my drippings.  They're cheap at Costco, but it seems wasteful to always toss them.  I usually use older ones that have been used a few times for other things, so they're about worn out anyway.  They're not terribly expensive at Costco, but still...

What do y'all do for drip pans?

    I do foil around my CGS drip pan. How do drippings find their way through the foil, that's the headscratcher.

    I found a stainless steel pan at Goodwill that fits the large BGE. It goes in the oven in the kitchen when we self-clean the oven. Most of the time I line it with foiland don't worry about it.

    For long messy cooks I use the disposable foil pans. They are dirt cheap and it saves on cleanup.

  • I have a stainless drip pan for my AR that is covered in foil when in use.

    Disposable pan here. And so thrifty I line with HDAF so I can reuse it. And to top it off the disposable pans I currently use are from frozen lasagna. Thrifty...ok maybe I'm cheap. :-). Then when it becomes to black etc it gets tossed.

    I foil the cheapo pans and re-use until their all bent up, twisted or smashed.
    They get tossed if the foil had a pinhole & leaked thru.
    I hate it when that happens!

    I never use a drip pan. If I go indirect I let the juices sizzle on the plate setter.

    I use disposable sometimes during a low and slow. I just keep turning the Oval stone over every few cooks to let the fire clean in. Easy peasy.

    I usually just make a drip pan from foil. For bigger cuts i use a disposable pan, but usually foil alone works fine.


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • Disposable steam table pans here from Sams club...like 8 bucks for 30...if they aren't too bad I will rice out and use again but usually I toss em...I figure at 30 cents a piece I can afford to not worry about them much.

    +2 - Disposable pans from Costco. SWMBO says that she has to wash enough dishes after my cooks to begin with, so any time I can use disposable items, it's much appreciated.

    Thanks for the input, everyone.  It's always interesting to see how many ways a technique is addressed on here.

    I think i will stick with the disposable pans for now, as they're so cheap, but I like to see all the alternative methods out there.
