    I am guessing you are using the trash can? If so, shouldn't a deep aluminium pan work? Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    If the coffee can has a peel-off label, remove it. I'm not sure what you're using for a smoker, any hints?

    An aluminum pan should work
     
  5. Agreed. I use a disposable roasting pan that you can get at any grocery store. I'd be hesitant to use a coffee can that had paint on it. One with a peel off label should be fine though.
     
  6. I think this is gonna come down to the Smoker your using... What do you got?

    Yes the type of smoker would be nice but if you can find another pan of similar size to fit in the slot or groves that the old one used to fit into.

    I checked his roll call post. That is why I went with the trash can. He has three I think listed.
