Smile Do you foil your bottom?

Those with gravity feeds, cabinets, offsets or whichever....how do you feel about foil or foil pans sitting on the bottom of your pit or on a heat distribution tube to catch grease? Is a long cook going to taste like smoked foil? Any effect to the cook?Thanks Brethrens.

I foiled the pan on my treager when it was alive. Changed it out each time and no issues. I smoked 6 butts at a time before without issue.

I cooked the entire grate of the texas model with Chicken and no issue either.

When I use my offset I like to have a large foil pan below the grate. The cooker has a drain hole but I like to keep the bottom somewhat clean instead of a greasy mess. No issues with foil

I have never used foil but I have uses 1/2 and full pans below the main grate. I will add water on a long cook to keep the drippings from burning.

I foil the bottom of my gf but not to catch drippings. I use it to catch the ash that blows into the cook chamber

I put foil pans on the bottom shelf of my lsg vertical cabinet to catch drippings. Makes clean up a lot easier

Will have to try this...
I wonder if adding water to the pans to keep drippings from burning (like mentioned above) has a water pan affect? Maybe keeps the cooking chamber a little moist?

I always cook with water in my cabinet.

My T&K has a different design. No heat tube so a little Ash blows in. Never gets near the food. Temps are not hot on the bottom rack. Very good trade off.

I don't foil and use some of the residual grease during cleanup to rub down the inside of the chamber for seasoning.
