Question Water Pans in a reverse flow?

Up until recently I had been using the drip pan to keep the humidity stable in my pit but I've also noticed the pit is either too humid due to flash off or under because it simply all steamed off and dried out quickly.

I've begun experimenting with adding a shelf on the left side of my pit over where the exhaust gasses draft from under the baffle. This seems to have made a difference almost immediately with more stable water levels, food still moist, and certainly less mess to drain out when cleanup time comes.

Anyone else using water pans in the reverse flows?

BTW, I use a custom build and it's built similar to a lang or meadowcreek.

Thoughts welcome!
Cooking for the love of it.
