I'm new to this type of smoking. I have a 20" yoder offset smoker with a convection plate. The convection plate has a series of holes of varying diameters. The first smoke I did was doing a couple of chucks in pans. The second smoke was 2 slabs of ribs place directly on the grates. With my second smoke, as all of you would know there was quite a bit fat drippings, etc. Which at some point I would imagine needs to be clean up. My question is what are your thoughts on placing an aluminum pan on the convection plate under the meat to catch those drippings? Would that mess with the function of the convection plate or would it have little or no effect? Thanks for your thoughts.
