Question on a build

  1. I guess its not so much on the build, but I am building a smoker with plans i found on compuvices. The plans have the fire box on the rear of the smoker. My question is do I still need to have a water / drip pan in the smoker box? Here is the link to the plans for further info.
  2. I think the pan is your preference. I've seen these plans before as I've just finished my own build. I've seen a smoker or two built in this same respect. Some have pans others don't. As for the performance with or without, I'm not sure as I've only seen them.
  3. I would say it really is your choice I find the water pan helps me control temp a little better. Good luck on your build
