Passing along a cheap and effective drip pan solution

I came across this useful drip/water pan at Menards so I thought I'd pass it along.  It's a pet water dish that fits perfectly between platesetter and grid for indirect cooks.  Much more durable then aluminum foil pans and cheaper.

Model Number: 11897 | Menards® SKU: 2530818

    I like the throwaways myself....get them at Sam's for under $10 a 30 pack....once the cook is done I toss it out.     They fit in my medium plate setter very well

    I just used this one with the butt I did overnight and pulled this morning.....I generally only use one on cooks I know are going to be really messy to avoid flare ups....surprisingly this butt wasn't too bad on the grease drips

    Here's another method -- just a couple of feet of thin foil drapped across the platesetter, turn a ever so slight edge along the side.  It will catch and burn off the drippings the same as a pan.

    I'd steer clear of the galvanized around food and heat. But that's just me....
