    Disposable aluminum foil pans work well.

    Or most any metal pan (8x11) (9x13) etc. Best to wrap entire pan in foil - keeps the wifie happy when the bottom of her pan isn't smoke stained. :ohmy:

    Yes I know. I used it one time and it's now my pan. The pan sits below the Smoke Ring and the lip sits on the ring. It fits perfect in my large. Other than that I use Weber drip pans.
  • I use a 9”x13” steel, high side, baking pan or a round 14” steel pizza pan (it has a pretty good lip on it) that are, for the most part, only used on the Egg.
    Although…I just did a bit of catering this past weekend and ended up having to use the 9”x13”! It cleaned up REAL good though!
    Just my 2 cents….But, stay away from any of the non-stick crap. Even for a drip pan!

    I have the bge round drip pan but it is starting to rust. Recently I have been buying the disposable aluminum pans from the supermarket when they go on sale. Throwing away the pan makes clean up easy, I also usually scoop the ash into it after cooking as well (the next day, no hot coals).
  • The rusting can be and is a problem for me too.. Especially after a load of acidic "something" (apple cider or apple jack) which I do, when doing a double smoked ham for example.
    Once I have the pan cleaned up (BTW, that has never been a real major effort) I put a few drops of veggie oil on a paper towel and give it a light coating.

    Funny you should say that, mine gets a spray of pam and goes back in the cupboard.

    I mostly use a deep dish pizza pan and line it with HD aluminum foil. Works great.

    I also use it on the Spider for my smaller Dutch ovens or Skillets.

    Here is a picture of it holding a ceramic dutch oven

    a 13.5 inch paella pan works well, lined with foil for a drip pan, also works for casseroles, paellas, deep dish pizzas etc. i even use it with a grid on top for turkeys

    I pick up some disposable ones at Costco in a package of 20 for under $8.

    That is the best deal I have seen, and they are great quality.

    I use mine at least 3 times before trashing them.
