    Drip tray on a pellet smoker

    Hi there,

    Tomorrow I'm going to use Meathead's The Ultimate Grilled And Smoked Turkey Recipe and in it he calls to have a tray under the bird to catch the drippings and regulate the heat.

    Does anyone here do that? If so any suggestions on where to do that? I have an Ironwood 650.

    Thanks in advance.

    I often use a pan (usually disposable, but not always) with one of several stand-alone grill grates from the kitchen set directly on top. Haven't done it with a turkey ... but if you have a sufficiently large pan, a grill grate to set on it that is strong enough to support your turkey, and enough vertical space in your pellet rig, then you should be good to go.

      If your upper grate is large enough to hold your bird, you can cook on the upper and put a pan on the main grate.

        I have done this in my Rec Tec for years. Only had to clean the grease bucket once in 7 years.Click image for larger version

          I have an RT-700. Why didn’t I think of that!! Thanks for the tip.

        I don't, better gravy can be made without the Drippings. Although I truly enjoy giblet gravy made with the drippings.
        Got a spatchcocked turkey in my Traeger as I type. This is the first turkey on my pellet grill, no-drip pan for me.

          I am doing my first spatchcocked turkey tomorrow on my Grilla. I'd be interested in how yours turns out.

      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.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
