In the past I have mixed about 2/3 water with 1/3 apple cider vinegar.
I've used just water, a mixture of 50-50 water and apple juice, water and cut up apples, water and cut up pears, water and cut up onions.......

We have basically determined that anything that goes in there does not impart flavor to the meat you are cooking, but gives a nice odor to the surrounding area and will make the neighbors come out in droves..
And some use sand in the water pan.

The purpose of the waterpan is to both act as a heat sink (helps stabalize against temperature swings)
It definitely has been a topic of conversation before. Greg pretty much nailed it, I just added.
