This cook had some broken firebricks in the pan and it was foiled over.
I took a couple universal grates and cut them to size so they fit directly over the waterpan.
Then I use an aluminum baking sheet foiled over to catch the drippings. The sheet pan has @ 3/4" lip and is almost as long as the waterpan. I do this cooking wet or dry and it makes emptying the waterpan and the resulting grease mess much more easy to deal with.
