I’m planning on giving some brats, green peppers, and onions a beer bath on Sunday. Question is, are the aluminum foil type pans safe to use on these stoves? The type of foil pans that alot of people use in the oven for cooking hams and etc. I normally let them all cook together low and slow on the grill but was thinking about using my 425 to do the majority of the boiling and then move the brats over to my smaller charcoal grill to finish instead of using my larger charcoal grill. I’d assume the foil would blacken on the bottom. Just didn’t know if the foil pan would develop a hole or any other unforeseen problem.

I would think so I haven't tried it but I have put hobo dinners wrapped in foil right on the stove and it worked rather well 🤔

You’ll have to fill me in on hobo dinners. I think I might have a idea of what they are but sounds like a fun thing to try out.

Your foil pans will work just fine.  I doubt that they will soot up.

Some people come home from a GPA gathering with less stuff than they left home with.  Apparently I am not one of those people...

Sounds like it’s a go! I’ll definitely try the hobo dinner next 👍🏻

Foil pans will do the job but a large, cast iron pan  spreads the heat out nicely. You can brown them gently, turning frequently on medium heat. Remove the brats and sauté your onions in peppers in the pan. Sweat those a few minutes and then add some beer to the pan and your already cooked bratwurst and let it reduce over med-low heat. That’s Wisconsin style.

I’ll try that in the upcoming weeks as well. 

I went with using my 413G. Chopped up onions and green peppers. Added two tall boys of Natty Light and 10 Brats. Cooked all that together with both burners for 1 1/4 hours. Transferred brats to my charcoal grill and grilled to a golden brown. All in all it turned out well.

As long as you have water in the aluminum tray you should be ok. Without water for cooling and heat dissipation, the aluminum might just turn to powder as Coleman stoves are hot when turned up. As an experiment you could put some aluminum foil on the burner and see what happens. Dollar Tree has some shallow rectangular steel trays for $1 that might act as a bottom protector to set the aluminum tray on.

Good advice 👍🏻 I used Natty Light instead of water though 😄

As a young Scout, my Scoutmaster always called hobo dinners "silver turtles."  That's what I still call them some 45 years later.

We were told they were Silver Treasures growing up and were tossed on the coals of the camp fire. Good times

Heck, I still eat them today. I plan on pork-n-taters with carrots and onions for dinner tonight. Someone should put a post on them in tricks and tips. Jeff
