    I have applied my rub and placed the roast into the fridge overnight. My goal here is to do a low and slow smoke say 220 until temp hits 160ish. Foil and spritz with apple cidar until 200. Using my MES, am I going to need water in my drip pan for moisture or not. I will want the bark on the outside and I think If I use water in the pan, it may prevent that. Planning on using hickory and apple chips.

    You should always use the water pan, it is what keeps your temps stable.

    That is not a good cut for 200'. better at 160' and slice.

    That is a small roast so watch your temps or it will be dry.

    Good luck whatever you do.
