XL Drip Pan Concept

Hi Guys, 

After researching drip pans for my XL, and rigging an aluminum turkey pan for a 4 shoulder cook last weekend I quickly realized the need for a more permanent solution. That being said I set out in search of a more cohesive option for my XL and made the following list of qualifications.

1. Comes from manufacturer totally sealed.
2. Can hold up to a gallon of liquid/fat run-off.
2. Will not fold over or warp when grabbed by one side (hot or cold).
4. Still thin enough to allow for 3 spacers underneath between drip pan over placesetter and not touch cooking surface.

After weighing all the options and extensive searching(including the CGS model which was the leader in my mind aside from its smaller size, and the Hot Water Heater Pan with hole filled) I found the perfect unit.

American Metalcraft HA4020 20" Straight Wall Pizza Pan. & Pan Gripper (For removing the hot pan)

I am very excited to put it to its first use as I think this combo best suits the XL and is highly economical.

Interested to hear other users opinions as this could be suited to work with any size egg.
