    I seen a couple different opinions on this. I use a drip pan under the grate, some place the butt right in a alum pan. What does placing the butt into the pan offer.

    Also on using finishing sauce from the drip pan under grate. (seems I remember reading this) I almost poured this onto my roast. I tasted it before I did and it was the most bitter, nasty tasting stuff ever created.

    What did I do wrong? Or did I misunderstand?

    I for one don't use a drip pan, I feel there's enough fat to keep it juicey. As far as a finishing sauce goes I haven't found any better then

    The only drippings I use are from the pan that i foil in. when I foil I use and aluminium pan and foil tent over it. On pork - ribs and butts I spritz with apple juice. I give them a good spritz once in the pan/foil. When ready to come out of the foil I take the drippings out of the pan and they get added to a combination of KC's original, oj and honey mixture. I mop with this for the very last bit on the smoker and save some back to mop with before wrapping to rest.

    It's only one fo the many ways you'll find others doing.

    Good luck
