Throwing on a tri-tip for supper tonight along with the fix-ins...got some red potatoes and corn on the cob in the works. I'll post a pic of all the goodness once it's done. I'm giving the WSM a run with an empty water pan tonight. Seems to be holding temp and running just fine! I basically just got tired of cleaning out the water pan even though I've been foiling it every time. If I was only smoking on the weekends, I wouldn't be concerned about it too much. But, the family has got me working out there every night (after I get home from my real job). I'll let you know how it goes.
