I use a reverse flow on my custom smoker (250 gal propane tank/horizontal) and used water pans as well. It took a couple of cooks to find where on the bottom to put the pans so they would not dry out and stem the meat they were located under. I also got frustrated and forgot to put a pan in when I was fully loaded (about 12 turkeys and 10 butts) and I found that I was having to do more work to keep a stable temp. I am a firm believer in using the water pans, but I am somewhat new to the smoking arean so my comments are not from years of experience, but about 2 yrs of personal frustration
