    I just got a smoker for my B day and have been toying with the idea of using a water apple juice mixture in the water tray. Does this make sense ? has anyone done this ?

    a 30 inch electric. Kind of an mid range starter just to see if I like it. I grill a lot so this should be a nice compliment when I have the time for better quality meat.

    a couple of things added to the top.

    re: the water pan, I have read that adding anything else other than just water does not make any difference.

    In my experience with chamber smokers, adding liquid to the water pan doesn't make a difference in the final product. No need to add a water pan all that will do is burn more fuel heating up the water. But definetly add a heat deflector(I use a pizza pan or a dry water pan) about 2 inches less in diameter than your cooking chamber. Are you using the Maverick for meat and pit temp? Your pit thermometer seems a bit higher than the actual grate, do you find that if it reads 250, the actual cook temp of the grate is lower, say 225?

    Love Meatheads site, full of valuable information, I've used his turkey brine recipe for the past 4 years! I agree with several of his points in the link, but I know that the same final product can be achieved without a filled water pan(less prep time, less fuel burned, less cook time, less clean up.) Just trying to save you time.
