I have an excessive amount of grease that accumulates in the bottom of my grill. Very little goes in the grease bucket. I have to clean the grease our regularly or I end of with a fire during preheating. I do foil my heat deflector, so I'm not sure if that is causing a problem or not getting grease to drain properly. Just looking for suggestions. I guess the easy answer is try cooking without the foil

The Flame Broiler Slider has “Slots” in it to allow for grilling and searing as does the Flame Broiler Main Plate. While bbqing, even in the closed position, grease can seep through those slots and into the Burn Pot and accumulate at the bottom of the cooking chamber. If you’re just bbqing, always foil “Both” the Flame Broiler Slider and the Flame Broiler Main Plate to prevent the cooked grease from seeping through the grill slots. Doing so will also make cleaning the grill a lot easier. If You want to grill something after you’re done bbqing, just open some holes in the Slider Plate and the Main Plate through the aluminum foil... Takes about a minute if that or just remove the foil once you’re ready to grill and sear. FYI. The PB Austin XL has a solid Flame Broiler Slider that will fit on your grill and the cooked grease doesn’t seep through.. Also, there will always be some ash and grease that accumulates at the bottom of every Pellet Grill, so normal cleaning after every cook will always be required... You can also foil the bottom of your grill and once you’re finished bbqing, just remove the foil and you’re done. Hope the info helps.

I get grease accumulation on the bottom of my grill sometimes as well. I just make sure the Flame Broiler Main Plate is seated correctly and foil is smooth to allow the grease to flow to the drain better. I also foil the bottom of the cooking chamber and when I’m done, I just remove the foil.. No grease or ash to clean up.
