I dont put the water pan under the meat. I dont like the messy greasy water cleanup that causes.

I just put the water pan (if I use one) on the cooking grate directly above the baffle.

Other than helping to temper the temp swings some, I dont see that it does anything to the meat.

As far as catching the drippings, I have an empty foil pan under the meat with foil on it, I just remove the foil for easy cleanup after the cook, and this doesnt get the smoker messy.

If I want the drippings, I will just get them from the foiled pan

just the way I do it
