I personally wouldn't waste beer. Any beer. It's not necessary on a butt. And there's some thought that the additional moisture present in the egg while the beer evaporates can affect the smoke binding to the meat. The drip pan is just there to catch drippings. Get a cheap foil one and put a couple balls of foil underneath to keep it from being in direct contact with your PS.BigBlackV said:What do you suggest I do to prevent this from happening...?lousubcap said:One thing with the water/beer drip pan-as mentioned above, the liquid is a heat-sink keeping your temperature suppressed until all the liquid evaporates. If that happens your BGE temperature will rise to the natural (non-water) vent settings. Just don't be surprised if that happens. FWIW
