New for 2017 ***All water pans are now stainless steel.
The slide out water pan is a must have feature if you are a competition team. The slide out water pan is separated from the fire by a permanent heat diverter. The space between heat diverter and the water pan creates an insulated heat pocket which slow releases the water into a wet smoker. At no point during your cook will the water come to a rapid boil. This does wonderful things for the bark on big meats.
The standard slide out water pan is made of food grade stainless steel and is easily cleaned.
The slide out features makes refilling easier as well.
