MES-30 accessory needed - 9x13x3 pan

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

We've found a bean recipe we love to smoke: http://www.bbqu.net/recipes/305_2.html We like to smoke this for 2 hours, then finish in a 350 oven to reduce the liquid.

 

It completely fills a standard 9x13x2 cake pan. I started using an aluminum pan after the foil pan I was using collapsed and I spilled some of the beans. Not the foil pan's fault, but the rigid pan keeps that from happening.

 

We purchased a 14x10x4 lasagna pan. I'd have to beat the sides in a bit on the 14" axis to get the pan to fit. My other choice is to let Karol make lasagna. Which makes me wonder if anyone's smoked lasagna, but that's not the point of this thread.

 

This pan http://www.amazon.com/Fat-Daddios-Anodized-Aluminum-Sheet/dp/B001331MW8/ does come in a 3" depth, but based on the 14x10, I would have to bend the end flanges on the 13" dimension. Could be done ...

 

Does anyone know of a pan 9x13x3 pan that fits in an MES-30?

A really quick Google search brought up LOTS of options. Here's one  Looks like it should last for a while  th_dunno-1[1].gif

That looks like the same one I posted from Amazon. The 1/2 bezel around the pan means it will be just a little to long to fit in the MES-30 unless I do some metal work. I can, but want to buy the answer if I can, not make the answer.

 

However, I do see a nordic pan that might work.

So the winner was http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001710JZM/ I used your suggestion, found the pan on the net, and when I knew what I wanted found it on Amazon.

 

It will be here in time for the weekend smoke!

I don't know the dimensions of the MES 30 grates but if there is not 1-2" of clearance all around the pan, more the better, you will have a problem with uneven heat above the pan...JJ

Works fine. Finishing the last of the frozen baked beans, and planning to smoke a new batch in early April.

 

Happy smoking!

Like JJ said above, Be careful you have enough breathing space around anything you put on a shelf.

 

I had 2 pans (9 X 11) on the same shelf, and the heat in my MES 40 was all screwed up!!  Real hot below that shelf & a lot cooler above it, until I realized it & separated them.
