Minor issue with Weber Bullet smoker

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by piratesmoker, Sep 14, 2015.

  1. I've got a minor issue with my Weber Bullet Smoker. I'd like to be able to smoke my ribs in a pan. Seems to make it easier to handle. Also makes it easy to wrap. However, I haven't found a pan that is large enough to hold ribs and that will still fit on the smoker. The rounded top is causing the issue. Anyone else had this problem? Solution?

    What size WSM?  18.5" or 22.5"? 
     
  3. Maybe you can use a round deep dish pizza pan

    I don't have your smoker...But, I got a couple of these... Actually mine have a heavy steel non stick pan but apparently Grill Pro discontinued making them...JJ

  5. That looks like the size pan that I've tried to use. Can't close lid. Rounded top/squared pan. Thanks for the help. I might look into a deep dish pizza pan to see if that fits.
     
  6. Good idea! I'm going to check into it. Thanks for the help.

    I don't wrap my ribs but I do put a drip pan underneath them.  In my 22.5" I use a 15" paella pan lined with foil. 

    For ribs like you are describing another option would be to get a 17" paella pan ($23 Amazon) and cut the handles off.  Or if you are a welder you could shorten them so you'd still have a bit of a handle.  I have two paella pans and use them ALL the time in my WSM.  Paella pans would be WAY more strong than a pizza pan.

    Try one of these:

    the rack is made by Weber and can be bought on Amazon for about $28. it does roasts ( the way it is set now) and ribs.

    the foil pan can be bought in a 30 pack at Sams for around $8 or so. 

    When you use it it comes apart easy and goes in the dishwasher.

    Hope this helps,

  9. Looks like a good setup. I'll have to see if it will fit on my 18.5. Thanks!
     
  10. Thanks for the advice!
