I am relatively new at this smoking stuff but am really loving it.
How many of you folks actually put water/juice or any other liquid in electric smoker? I have been using it and putting things like water, maybe apple or pineapple juice or vinegar in there. Smoker seems to get really moist during the smoke and I am getting some leaking of moisture at the door and window.
I am not sure if I should even be putting anything in there and just use it a drip pan. None of the recipes I see call for or specify what should be put it there.
What do you folks do as far as water goes in your MES's, what do you use and when?
I am smoking a butt today and I will not use anything in the water tray for the first time so I have a basis for comparison.
Thanks for any input.
