No problems, you can give it just a slight tilt so that all the grease and drippings go toward the drain. I wouldn't give it much as you will end up with a pool, just enough to allow ease of cleanup. I did not give mine any tilt at all when I built it, 4 1/2" below the lower grate all the way down, I just use the jack on my trailer to raise or lower the drain when cleaning the RF plate off. So I guess the answer to your question is yes you can, but you don't have to...lol. If it's a stationary model (patio, not on a trailer), then yes maybe a slight tilt.
Not at all. In fact most builders slope the RF plate down away from the firebox (higher where it starts at the FB and lower at the far end) and put a grease drain at the far end.
