I have to admit, it was a major concern for me. ran mine today for the first time, ribs on top rack gave me a mean bark(will post pics tmr). this was with the water pan half full. Im looking forward to brisket and pork on it to see what I can produce.
Thanks for the post, in my search on this precise subject last week or so, I couldnt find bws bark pics
