Pork Butt in pan during smoke

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Do you like to place your pork butt in a foil pan while it cooks or go directly onto the grates?  I am getting ready for my second pork butt and have seen butts done both ways. Your thoughts?

I always put right on grate. I really don't think it matters though.

Straight on the grate for me. With a pan underneath to catch drippings. I've had both ways and really not sure of much of a difference.

I go directly on the grate unless doing different meats on each grate, then I put the meat in a pan...JJ

Thanks for the info.  My first butt was right on the grates and turned out fine, but wanted to see if one was better than the other.
