Someone I met uses sand in the water pan on the theory it helps hold the heat.  He did mention that you can't fill it all the way up, otherwise the water pan will wind up in the coals.  He dumped them out after a couple cooks, but lining the pan with foil above the sand would make sense for easy cleanup of the drippings.

Anyone using this sand method or having any thoughts on it?
regards,
Hal

I also run with sand in my WSMs. Then I use a pizza pan wrapped in foil on top of that. I seem to hold temps better at the end of cooks with the sand. Not like it makes it last longer but more of a steady decline as the charcoal falls apart. The pizza pans make clean up easy as they are dipped already.

I use the water pan believe it or not with water :-)
The WSM is designed for water so I use water.

The drippings I always throw in the wood next to my smoker.

I also havenít foiled the pan as yet.
I try to avoid aluminium whenever I can!

I rarely use the pan at all anymore. 90% of my wsm use is top rack only and no pan.

We have green barrels for lawn clippings and yard waste. I typically dump the water (when used) in then put the foil in the recycling bin. Tried dumping it in the compost bin but it attracts critters.
11 kettles, 2 WSMs, and 1 lonely gas grill!

Aside from the environmental issues ;) I got to pay a plumber a nice piece of change to unclog my drains after I poured a done Brinkmann water pot down the drain after a 12 hour brisket cook. I ain't doing that again!

Has anybody tried putting wood blocks or chips in the pan? Will that work? I just hate those damn water pans and I hope Weber will come up with a new design that won't have one.
