Smoke Ribs in a pan?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My buddy smokes all his ribs in disposable aluminum pans to eliminate the mess and has suggested I do the same.

Is this a good idea? It seems to me that the smoke wouldn't penetrate the meat as well and they would be sitting in drippings/fat/etc.

I would smoke them on the rack and if you want place a pan under the rack to catch any drippings, that way the smoke can get to all sides of the ribs and they are not sitting in liquid...

I'm with Paul place the pan under them however if doing 3-2-1 on multiple racks sometimes I will place them in an aluminum foil pan and cover with foil for the foiled portion of the smoke

What they all said on the grates for the best smoke flavor and put a pan under for drippings. icon_mrgreen.gif

I agree put the pan underneath. But if you also want to have any easy clean up just line the bottom of your smoker with foil (Costco roll biggrin.gif). That's what I do... once the smoker cools I just fold all the foil to the middle roll it up and into the garbage. Usually have to take a couple of paper towels and wipe any dripps that found a hole in the foil.

Pork ribs on the grate, but at times Beef Ribs can go in a pan. Leave alittle mojo crillio in the pan and pour over the ribs as they smoke. Excellent. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
