Newbie to the forum and smoking food - A big Hello to All!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi folks!  I live in western Lake Worth FL.  After several years of messing with those tiny smoker boxes on my bbq grill, I finally got a Masterbuilt barrel type smoker.   Cant wait for the weekends so I can do my smoked ribs etc.  Even tried my hand at a prime rib roast.  Best food I ever had comes out of that smoker!  Wish I had gotten one years ago.

 

My question is this:  How necessary is it to use the water pan in this type of a smoker?  Ive been leaving it out and not finding that the meat gets 'dry', moreover, I find taking it out and dumping the water, as well as trying to clean it a chore.

 

Looking forward to lots of smoker talk with you all!

Welcome to SMF!

 

Everybody has an opinion on the water pan. Some leave it in empty, some put sand or water in it.

 

If you cover it with foil the cleanup is easy.
