Is this really a good idea? or is it one of those personal preference things? I borrowed a design from smokemifugotem utilizing my reverse flow plate as a water pan. Holds right around 2 gallons. Some things I have noticed, once the smoker is up to temp a gallon of water will steam off the plate (1/4" plate) in just over an hour. It does seem to drag the temp down a little more the I would like. I am also getting a little bit of about 10-20 degrees hotter temps on the firebox/exhaust end of the cookchamber. Guessing convection. Bottom line, I am thinking about aborting this idea and either using a bread pan in the bottom or nothing at all. Thoughts?
