I'm hoping someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong. When I cook pork butts in my MES I put them on the top rack with a foil pan on the rack below to catch the drippings. My problem is when it's time to foil the butts, my drippings have all burned up. Last time I even put a can of beef broth in the pan when I started to see if that would help. I'm cooking at 225 with a tile over the heating element. Anyone have any advice?

Temps got to be wrong. With all the fat dripping off the butt it should be filling up with liquid. Next time start with 1 can chicken broth, 1 onion chopped up & a bunch of garlic cloves in the pan. You should have a nice broth when the butt is done. All you have to do is de-fat it.
