How do you collect the drippings?  I don't understand how you do that when they drip into the tray of water where the pucks drop into.

You put a foil pan on a rack below the butts.

well don't I feel dumb.  So used the the v tray being called a drip pan that didn't even think of that.  Probably to late for that now since it's been smoking for nearly 4 hours.

You got plenty of time to sneak one in there it will probably be a 10-11 hour cook minimum.

If you add the pan now I would put some "simmering" water or beer in it.

The finished product.  I threw them in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes to bring the temp up just a little more before I pulled it.  It is getting late and didn't want to wait any longer.  They peeled right open when in the oven for a short time.  Excellent results.  Bone pulled cleanly out.  Ready for the Thursday luncheon now.

I'll let you know what everyone thinks at the party.  Kids are better today.  Thanks for asking.

It was a hit at the party.  I had enough for two sandwiches left.
