Is there a pictorial for using the RTV sealant? Is this something that I have to do?

The smoker seemed to fluctuate a fair amount. How much should I allow? I felt like I had to babysit more than normal.

I used the foil wrapped pizza stone diffuser method. Anyone putting a water pan on top of the stone? Or just on top of the grate?
John Setzler's kamadoguru site has a lot of great info on the Akorn
