KC,
the first pic of the pan is the way it came from Mike along with the separate tray. The expanded steel was already tacked in. I guess the sliders are an extra option on the party and I am kind of glad I didnt get it that way with all the extra charcoal room you gain.

Do you use the heat diverter in conjunction with the water pan ??
Yes.

With the heat divertor addition I still had to add water at 6 hrs but that was better than doing it at 4 hrs. The heat was a lot more controlable with it and she hung at 225F most of the time using Rancher and Oak chunks. I now take out the divertor until the smoker comes up to temp. I realized it was keeping the temp from leveling off when starting her up. I do think for the small cost it was worthy mod/investment.

KC one question for you, when you did the tray mod with the air bake pan does it completely cover the water pan? I remembered you had a notch cut out for the water tube but I couldn't remember how far back the pan went. I figured that you would at least want it open in the back so the steam could escape up into the cooking chamber.
