Water Pan Recipes?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
In some of your photos, I noticed some of you added things to the liquid vessel of your vert smoker (sprigs of herbs come to mind).

Is this standard?

Can anyone recommend a good recipe for this?

Also, can you use fruit juice or beer in these things?

Thanks,



Derek

I normally put apple juice in if I'm doing pork. I've not tested to see if this really imparts any flavor to the meat. I usually do half apple juice and half water.

My suggestion is to try out things that would normally accompany your meat. A buddy of mine used cut up apples this weekend and said it really had a good flavor.

Try it out and then report back!

The overall consensus is it does nothing to impart flavor.

But it does smell nice while the smoker is going. biggrin.gif

Yea some say it adds flavor and some say it doesn't do anything to the flavor of the meat. I am not sure my suggestion would be to try both ways and see what YOU think. Apple juice and water is a real common one that people use.
