This grease tray is located just beneath the cookbox with a certain distance from its burner tubes in order to ensure that the grease will not catch any fire. The grease that came out of the meat that has been grilled will go directly into the grease tray and then to the catch pan.

The tray has the ability of sliding down easily from the cabinet in case you will be cleaning them and once you notice that the catch pan is about to get full, all you need to do is to remove the drip pan which by the way is disposable, throw it in the bin and then you are now ready to replace it with a new one.
