Just wanted to ask if this would be okay or should I set it right on the grates?

Thanks

You'll collect all the juices and fat in the pan if that's what you want. Either way works fine.

I do them in a pan daily. Not only will you have great drippings, it saves on the time cleaning the pit too!

I will always finish in a pan, (given the choice and the chance to collect the juice once the meat goes past 160°), but I often start the butts right on the grate!

I guess I have the best and worst of both worlds, need a clean rate to start, get smoke all around the butt, collect the juice, save on final clean up.

Ok, here's the best of both worlds... start the butt on the grate. About 3 hours before finish slide a pan of baked beans under the butt and let them drippings hit the beans. Man 'O man!!!

Yes just make sure your meat is dripping juices and not blood. I prefer to let the meat get to at least 150° before I place the beans under it but that is just me. Very Happy

I did 2 birds (12 pounds each) in pans from start to finish for the first time and they turned out great. I added the giblets and a rough-chopped onion to each, with no brining, injection, etc. Covered with foil about 2 1/2 hours in and they were fantastic. One was supposed to be for Gumbo, but...The crowd ate it up before I had a chance to rescue it Laughing Laughing

The dripping is fine when you use a pan. And the cleaning time is saved as said my one of the member above...i too use pans for this..
