    I want to get a WSM but have a ? about the water pan it seems to me that the bottom grate is right over the water this won't steam the meat will it?. And if i put sand in pan instead of water do u guys spray the meat with apple juice or just let it cook. Thank you for your time.

    No... the water pan doesn't steam the meat at all. I use water in mine and it all comes out great!
