Noob Question Foil vs. Glass

I've had my LBGE for two months. Love it beyond belief. But I do have a question...

It seems as if a lot of cooks are done in foil pans rather than glass baking dishes. I am curious to know why, esp. if temps are held below 450 degrees. It may be a clean up thing... curious minds want to know.

I don't want to ruin dinner by cooking with glass if it's hazardous.



  • I have used a glass baking pan instead of foiling my ribs with no problem and have baked cake in the Egg using a glass pan also.

    Shouldnt be a problem, especially when indirect.

    I use whatever does the job - metal or glass - but always line with foil as well as encase it. It's merely for sake of cleanup. Heck, I foil my plate sitter too!

  • the last time i used glass, the meat cooked faster on bottom. glass holds alot more heat than foil. i will never use glass again for a drip pan
