    You should protect the elements from drips and grease landing on them.  Putting a foil pan in between (like on a lower shelf) to catch everything is a good idea!

    I have a slab on the top and one on the bottom rack. Should I try and move them both to the top. They have been in there for about 45 mins already

    And it has a drip cup at the bottom of the smoker. So I assumed it was ok for it to drip
