I thought I would share my cheap ss drip tray.

Below is version 1 a small Tupperware container held to the fridge by a neodymium magnet from an old hard drive

It looks like crap but it keeps the basement floor dry.

The current version is a stainless steel wall board mud pan that I already had. They can be bought at HD in 12”-18” sizes

The other required parts are a few neodymium magnets. I used some from old hard drives; these secure the pan to the fridge and allow removal when needed.

The pan will leak if the joints are not sealed, I used Silicone

The pan is not exactly light, but the magnets are very strong, they hold over 4lbs plus the weight of the mud pan.

Not bad. I've been thinking about getting a tray for a while now. I might throw a tupperware dish up there like that in the meantime.

They sell a Stainless Smoking Box at Lowes for your grill. It might work similar to the mud tray. It comes with a cover punched with holes too.
