    Hey guys. I have been a long time smoker here in Alabama and just recently subscribed to the newsletter. I enjoy firing up the pit, having a crowd over and just sitting back and watching everyone eat so much they get miserable. For the past 5 years, I have been using the largest side by side smoker by Oklahoma Joes. Recently, at a function, we were talking bbq and someone suggested using a pan of apple juice or apple cider vinegar mixed with water instead of just water next to the fire box. Has anyone tried this? Any suggestions.
  2. Welcome to the Forum!!! There's a lot of experienced BBQers here that are great people and willing to share. I also use an offset smoker. Mine is a char griller all modded up. I use a baffle I bought online and never had to use water to even temps. I know some guys say it adds moisture, and the theory behind apple juice is it will add flavor, but I never did this. I'm not saying adding water or juice is right or wrong, just never did it. Anyway, welcome aboard. Good Luck!!!

  3. Hello and welcome from East Texas. I have done both really can't tell any difference, I always spritz whatever I am smoking, sometimes just apple juice sometimes 50/50 apple juice and apple cider vinegar.
