Breaking the new MES in tomorrow with a 4lb Boston Butt. About to start making my rub to get it prepped for tomorrow. Quick question. I've read that I should foil the water pan for drippings. Make sense, but I've also seen that some people use an aluminum roaster pan instead of putting the butt directly on the rack. I would assume that is to minimize mess.
Which technique is better?
