I suggest using water at first and then experiment. I found no water seemed to make a "dry jerky like" bark I didn't quite care for on some meats, mainly ribs.
Have you tried foiling the ribs at any time during the cook? The only reason I ask is I have a WSM and I have not tried going waterless, although I want to because I burn the living hell out of charcoal.
