    Water/Drip pan replacement for MES 30

    I'm sold. I'll try wrapping the bottom pan and using a foil pan like that. Was worried that foil pan would ruin the air flow and smoke flow, but looks like yours is set up just like I'd set up mine.

    Water/Drip pan replacement for MES 30

    Thanks for all the responses. Don't have the pan anymore, but I'll put some foil on the bottom rack and see how it goes.

    Water/Drip pan replacement for MES 30

    I'd definitely like to hear more about not using water. I thought humidity inside was critical?

    Water/Drip pan replacement for MES 30

    Interesting. I haven't researched it in years since I bought it, but I remember the prevailing opinion was to always add water in the pan.

    Water/Drip pan replacement for MES 30

    Help with non burnt Chips

    I had a similar problem. The heating element wasn't coming on enough to provide the necessary heat to smoke the chips when I had it set below 250.

    Water/Drip pan replacement for MES 30

    Hoping you all can help me out. My water/Drip pan has a hole in it, and I can't find a replacement anywhere. The appliance factory website had one but it was for a much larger model of smoker. Do any of you know where these can be found?
