So I smoked some chicken two days ago and noticed nothing out of the ordinary. Tonight I started the wsm and realized there was water dripping out of the dead center on the water pan. After several hours of messing around somehow there is a leak in my water pan. Only had about a year. Anyone heard of any issues with this? Guess ill have to get a new one. Never tried a smoke without water other than doing chicken at 350 or so. I got it hovering around 225 finally, well see how it holds throughout the cook. I've go a 12lb brisket on the top and 9lb Boston butt on the bottom. Done this several times in the past with excellent results, but never tried a 12-15 hr cook without water in the pan. We'll see how it goes!
