smoking a butt?
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
Yes, you can put your pan straight in the smoker. However, it's been my experience that a butt gets better smoke and a better bark if it sits directly on the grates...although its is more convenient and easier to clean up in a pan.
Good luck, and let us know how it turns out!
Sounds like a plan...looking forward to seeing the qview!
FYI: It helps if you put a wire cooling rack in the pan for the meat to sit on. That way it doesn't lay i it's own juices, and the smoke can get to all parts of the meat.
