    Went camping a few weekends ago and my homebrew club brought in a trailered stick burner smoker.  We threw a tri tp on and it was amazing.  So of course I want a smoker.  Being new to it, decided to buy a used electric 30" MasterBuilt (I think) off of Craigslist for $75.  Then I bought the pellet smoker option and in a few hours I'm going to fire it up.

    It was filthy though, I pulled about 3lbs of char and crud out of it in cleaning it up.  So it's preseasoned...time to fire it up!

    Oh yeah, since I bought my MES used...I know which is the chip tray and I'm not going to use it since I have an AMPS.  But which is the drip tray and which is the water tray?  I took everything out to clean it but I don't have a manual and there isn't one on the MasterBuilt website.

    Any ideas?  One of the trays has a cover...that for water?
