2 butts, 1 pan

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Heello, I am a newbie here and I have a quick question. I have a ECB Smoke N' Grill and I wanted to know if anyone has ever smoked two butts in it, but only one aluminum pan. As in one butt on the bottom grate IN a pan and one on the top directly</b> on the grate. Hence the drippings all go into one pan. Now, can I have 'twice' the amount of drippings go to one butt, or should I just divide it up evenly? Either way works for me, I just want to know if anyone has done this and if it tastes better/worse/same.

 

Thanks!

  2. I have a ECB Smoke N' Grill and I wanted to know if anyone has ever smoked two butts in it, but only one aluminum pan. Yes, I have done it on my WSM and Reverse Flow rig. It's not an issue. The funny really begins with you use different meats, like Pork over Chicken. or Ribs over Baked Beans.
  3. As in one butt on the bottom grate IN a pan and one on the top directly</b> on the grate. Hence the drippings all go into one pan.
  4. Now, can I have 'twice' the amount of drippings go to one butt, or should I just divide it up evenly? Which ever works best for you however I would divide it amongst butts
  5. Either way works for me, I just want to know if anyone has done this and if it tastes better/worse/same. Same basic taste unless you mix and match.

 

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks

Hey thanks for the info!

 

 This was for mothers day so I just went ahead and cooked the 2 butts and had all the drippings go to just one. They tasted about the same in the end. Although I did save one butt whole and reheated it at 325f for 1 and a 1/2hrs in oven and then pulled it. It actually worked out great that way. I waited until IT reached 145f and it pulled right off the bone no prob. That was the one with all the extra drippings, but I don't think it made much of a difference.

 

I will try and upload pics soon!
