    I just put the nomex tape on the ash pan of my akorn. Its no longer white now lol.

    Here is my question, it did this even before i added nomex. Why do i have moisture/water build up in ash pan??? It does come out between ash pan and main housing. Now nomex is black.

    Anyone else have this issue???

    I'm not familiar with the akorn... but let me ask this... do you use a drip pan under your meat ? or do juices and drippings go straight down to the fire and ash pan ? also.. do you use a water pan ? does it leak ? do you cook with top vent closed or near closed ? just trying to gather more info...
