water in drip pan

Have a 6 lb. butt going now for 3 hours on v-rack in pan of water. Do I need to be sure there is water in the pan all the way thru or not? It is about 38 degrees outside where the bge is. Very cold night for south Mississippi. By the way J.J. I think Guntersville is one pretty place. Used to go there on weekend when making summer camp with National Guard in Anniston at Ft. Mc.[p]thanks a lot.[p]Ray Price


  • Ray Price,[p]I don't think water is ever necessary in the pan while doing a butt. My usual setup is V-rack in a pan on the grill. The pan's only real purpose this way is to catch the drippings from the meat.
    The ceramic will do the job in retaining moisture in the meat.
    Good Luck

    Scott S,
    Only if you want to keep the juices from burning in the drip pan.
