We have a gas companion grill that is just the right size for my husband and I. I usually cook on it 3-4 times a week. I would like to try cooking some recipes that require you to close the valve and add water, like the Bodacious Boston Butt. Any suggestions on how to cook using this method on this grill. Thank you.

Sally,
Sorry. For safety reasons, the Companion was purposely designed not to have water in the drip pan. Too much of a chance that someone would forget & pick up the grill with hot water inside.

Sally

OldGuy,
Thank you for the reply. Do you think if I put a cup/can on the grill rack with the liquid in that when I cook the Boston Butt that it might work that way?

OldGuy

Sally,
You can try it. A boston butt is a pretty large piece of pork. Are you sure you have room in the Companion? Be sure to leave a couple of inches free around the edge of the cooking grid so the heat can circulate.
