Your fire/heat/smoke source goes in the very bottom. The water pan hanging over the top of that -- with water in for moisture & temp stability, then your meats on the racks above that. Don't depend on the built in thermo (or any thermo) unless you've checked it with boiling water. Generally, cook temps should remain between 225-250* F until the meat hits your desired internal temp -- which varies wit your meat choice and tastes.
