Don't want to hijack your thread, but I see some more experienced members are watching it.  If you place a drip pan under you meat does it affect how the meat will cook?
I know it is kind of a stupid question but if you don't ask one will never know.

There are smoke guys that like to catch the dripping off beef and make a gravy out of it.

You can if you want to.

Don't see a reason why it would affect the smoke time or the cook time.

sNc, there was only one stupid question ever ask on this forum .... And I did the asking.

If it is important to you to ask, it will get answered.

SmokeNcanuck,
Just make sure your drip pan does not completely cover the rack it is sitting on.  You need to have room for heat and smoke to move upward and not get trapped underneath.

Ky Nola is right on the $$.  Maybe like a 6x8 or 5x9 (your rack is approx 13x9)

Hey buddy - its been awhile since Ive been back here.




Awesome job !   I have been reluctant to smoke in the cold since my last attempt - but it looks like I should be ok if its around 30 degrees or so.

So - what was the total time the butts were in the smoker?  and how many hours of some did you do?
 

You must have a doozie of a power bill....





I cant wait until we get into our new house and I can set my smoker up in the garage so I can smoke year round.....

Someone posted the power draw once and I can't remember but your wife blowdrying her hair every day uses more power than the Bradley.
