I had that problem in the beginning when I smoked butts. I raised my temp to 250 and that helped. The higher heat turned the water to steam. If your thermometers are off a little you could be cooking cooler than you thought you were. Making water instead of steam.

I am also trying to figure out how a better way to put the thermometer in there. Right now it's just going through a hole and held in with a washer and lock washer so I can't easily pull it in and out. The inside:
Install a UF watertight conduit nut in the side of mine it has a rubber grommet in the middle so your leads don't get chafed. It can be seen above the shelf. You can get them at Home Depot or Lowes.
