Default Would it make a difference if?

Just wondering if the results would be the same if you use a covered foil pan instead of wrapping your bbq with foil, just seems a lot easier and less messy to me

I use a foil pan all the time. I used to wrap with foil but the last roll I got from Sams even though it said heavy duty was much thinner than the previous roll of the same stuff. I was having to double wrap and it still was tearing or getting holes so I went to the foil pans. I cook mostly brisket flats so depending on how big they are I put them in the same hotel size pan. Works great.

Pans are a great idea. I just always forget about them.

I don't foil ribs but when I want to speed up a shoulder, foil pans all the way.

I always use pans for the fact of tearing the foil on the grates

I have been playing with cooking the whole butt or brisket in a pan to ease with clean up. I bought some cheap bakers racks to put in the pan to keep the meat up from the drippings and to let the smoke circulate all around the meat. WHen I get to the wraping phase I just wrap the top of the pan.

I have only done this a few times but so far I cannot tell any difference.

Results same.

Better is they dont snag/catch on the grate and tear.

Not as good, if packing a bunch in a cooler/warmer they dont fit as nicely together as they did before...

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
