Well, I'll jump right out there and the folks here can let me know if I passed my exam.

Access Door: You don't want one as it will be nearly impossible to make it airtight, then you won't be able to control the temperature. You don't need one since the charcoal basket will hold more than enough fuel to outlast anything that you are going to cook.

Water Pan: Not needed if cooking grate is 24" above bottom of charcoal basket and because drum is a pretty moist cooking environment anyway.. Not wanted. Acts as big heat sink and makes drum less efficient.

Sorry, didn't really answer your question, but I think I can save you some trouble.

Well, how did I do?
