I think you got it! Some spacers between any drip pan and the plate setter are always a good idea. It will keep the drippings from burning and smelling funky.shughes said:New egg owner and doing my first turkey. Decided to use Kevin Rathbun recipe off egg site, http://www.biggreenegg.com/recipes/smoked-turkey/ . Have a question regarding the vrack placement. The recipe says to put the v rack in the drip pan and then the drip pan on the place setter. Am I reading this correctly that the grid is not used and is the reason that it lowers the bird due to the extra height the v rack gives? Also, my drip pan is the cheap aluminum type. Do I need to set some nuts or other objects under drip pan so the surface area is not as large sitting on the place setter?
