    Drip pan in the OG?

    Tomorrow I’m doing my first whole turkey on my OG. I will spatchcock a 10 pounder. In the past I’ve put a drip pan under the grill grates on my gasser. However the heat deflector drip pan in the OG is slanted to the back. I’m not sure how to place a pan on it without the drippings spilling over. Also I’m not sure how to make it fit under the grates.
    Anyone else use a drip pan on that OG drip plate?

    The OG deflector gets mighty hot … maybe a little too hot to avoid burning drippings. In my OG, I generally set a large foil pan on the OG lower grate. I set another grate on the pan and the meat on that. Works quite well.

      Oh excellent. That sounds like a good idea. Thank you so much for the reply and help. So I assume/hope that the bird will fit in the OG even when place up on the foil pan. O am assuming also that the fail pan can support that weight of the bird.
      I imagine I will have to remove the upper half grate, but that is no big deal, I was not planning on using it during the turkey cook time.
      Thank you again MBMorgan and happy Thanksgiving!

    How did your bird turn out? Did the extra-grill-on-a-pan work for you or did you resort to something else? FWIW, if in the future you want to smoke a moderate sized bird on the OG, you might consider getting the upper grill grate extension from Grilla. It really adds a lot of elevated cooking space and makes it easy to set a pan (or pans) below on the main grate.

      MBMorgan Sorry for the late reply- I think it went well. I did not put water in the drip pan as we were making gravy elsewhere, and that dried out the meat a bit. The legs and thighs were done before the breast. I learned a lot, those who ate were happy, though I see quite a bit of room for improvement. Thank you for the help!

    Oh yes I put the bird in as the OG went from 125 -> 225 deg to get extra smoke flavor...it worked too well. I found the smoke profile a bit strong...

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
