Looked around and didn't find anything that quite answered this but please point me there if I'm wrong. I need to make a couple butts a day in advance, and from other's suggestions I've read to: Smoke 'em Rest 'em Pull 'em 'fridgerate 'em Put in 350* oven in their juices for a couple hours before serving. Is there a trick to catching the drippings without them burning up? I could use my water pan without water, but being so close to the fire (SV24) I'm afraid they'll just burn up. I could place the butts in a pan, but am afraid of lessening the smoke intake since the pan is blocking the smoke from rising into the bottom. I could put a pan above the water pan on a lower rack and the butts on a middle rack. Then, once you get them, I assume you just put them in the refrigerator until you're ready to use the next day? Thanks!
