Default What size clay saucer for 22" WSM?

Good morning all,

I am looking to purchase a clay saucer for my 22" WSM, and was wondering what size to get. The diameter of of water pan is approximately 18 3/4", but the biggest clay saucer I am finding is 16". I am not sure if the end result is to have a saucer that is close to the diameter of the water pan, resulting in the saucer nestled on top of the water pan. Or, if I should go with the 16", and have the saucer resting within the water pan.

Thus far, I have been running the water pan dry, resulting in a lot more "hot and fast" than "low and slow." Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The 16 will work fine...be sure to foil both then nest the saucer in the pan...

Rover,

You could keep better tabs on the water, eh?

I should have written more clearly, I actually haven't put water in the pan at all. I really don't want to deal with greasy water and messy cleanup. I am thinking that foiling the clay saucer will be the ticket for me. I have just been using an empty pan.

Just my .02, but I've become hooked on the addition of a water pan (one with actual water in it ) during my cooks. Doesn't matter to me if it gets greasy: I just pour it out anyways after the cook. But the added moisture helps greatly.

I'll try with the water as well, thanks for the advice!
