Disposable full pan. Fill it with water. Toss it out after its done cooling. No issues. I use a 270 Smokers Sumo.

I use full and half foil pans under the meat in my offset to catch the drippings. Never had any problems with off tastes or smells. Easy cleanup.

I've got a slide in water pan that I generally line with foil but I also have it full of aluminum loaf pans full of sand and wrapped in foil that I use as a heat sink. I sit a disposable pan either right on top of the sand filled pans or on a rack right below the cooking meat to catch drippings. Never any issues with it.

No that's quite the setup! Cool idea.

I foil the water pan in my cabinet. I also bought a couple Terra Cotta planter bases, wrap them in foil, and put them in the water pan. Acts as a heat sink. I haven't needed more than three grates yet, so the bottom grate gets two full size cheap aluminum pans spread apart with a piece of foil across the middle. Catches most of the drippings and makes for easier clean up.

I use a foil pan to catch the drippings during overnight cooks for briskets and actually set Butts on a rack within a foil pan. It seems to produce a better finished product in my Stumps by better controlling the chamber temperature and definitely minimizes the clean up.

Otherwise, I never use a pan or foil.

I usually do line the bottom of my Good One Open Range and Marshall when I remember to do so. Both of them have drain holes for grease but the foil just makes cleanup easier.

I put a foil pan in the water pan of my Battle Box. I have never noticed any odd taste and it makes clean up much easier.

I foil the grease catcher on my Assassin. It makes for much easier cleanup - just replace the foil.

I wonder if foiling a pit's rack or having multiple pans on a rack interferes with the smoke, heat flow or air circulation in general? Forces everything to the perimeter of the smoker maybe? Just thinking about now that I've read many comments.

No foil in any of my cookers. Lang I scrape the reverse flow plate with a putty knife every 4-6 cooks. Pit Barrel drops into the charcoal and burns off. Weber I scrape occasionally when the One Touch blades start getting hard to spin.

Well, my first reaction to the thread title was "No I prefer cotton briefs"! ;-)
