I use the foil on the bottom of my smoker but I still got a lot of chicken fat all over the bottom. I cut the foil big enough it can wrap/lap up the sides poke a hole where the drain is and cover the wood box lid. I don't mess with cleaning out the pork fat it smells good but the chicken fat was runny and plain nasty. I had to scrub all of that nasty stuff off the inside bottom I figured it might get rancid and stink.
Does anyone else have this runny chicken problem, and is there a easy/simple cure?
