Grease drain

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My next project to my smoker is possibly a grease drain system of some type. I currently place two shallow baking pans on the bottommost shelf and put an inverted V channel over the joint to channel drippings into the pans in this area. This seems to work, but I do get some slight charring of the drippings, which I'm not sure I want. I have seen some elaborate set-ups, including a series of overlapping Vs and inverted Vs which basically formed a grid that caught everything and ultimately channeled the drippings to a single collection point. Any suggestions?

How about taking a cake pan or cookie sheet that fits into your smoke and covers the area and attach a pipe to it. Have that pipe run out of the smoker and into a collection can. I would think a coffee can would work for a collection can. You might have to put the drip pan at a slight angle to get it to flow to the pipe. This should help get the grease out of the smoker and cut down on the charring. Hope this helps.

How about a pic of your smoker so we have a clue to what your talking about?
