V-rack for Mini?

Did my pork tenderloin on the mini last night (was only a little over a pound). Came out lovely. Only problem is I don't have any kind of rack whatsoever that would fit in the mini. Has anyone seen something that would fit or have another suggestion? Just needs to raise it up about an inch or so to keep it out of the drippings.[p]Incidentally, those little foil cake pans you can get in the grocery store fit PERFECTLY to catch drippings and also for cooking fish and such where you want it in the liquid.[p]mShark

    MollyShark, I bought an extra grill and put a brick on the bottom grill, the aluminum pan on the brick and the second grill on the pan. It managed to cook a 2-lb pork tenderloin with no problem on the mini.

    MollyShark,[p]I use my Mini a lot. I cook indirect with a small foil drip pan with one of those little bread cooling racks (approx. 4" x 6" setting on top of the foil pan to support the roast. It works great.[p]Carl T

    Wise One,
    Great ideas. I'll probably do both. Tonight is the first time I fired up my big guy in a long while. Actually got the autolock to work and everything. I forgot how hot that big one gets. 15 minutes and I was pulling 800 with no sign of slowing down. The ribeyes were to die for, though. That with some Chilean cabernet and nothing seems quite as serious as it did just a few hours ago.[p]Thanks for the suggestions![p]MShark
