    Default Smoker water pan.

    Had a question. I let my water pan dry out and some juices burnt on to the pan. Im soaking it in some water...is it ok to use some dish soap(dawn) added to the water to clean it? I dont want a soap taste in my smoker. Any help would be appreciative...Thanks!

    I do this as well. Just like anything else, good wash followed by thorough rinse and all should be well. Really, it's not different that washing baking pans that you'd use in the oven.

    Dawn away!!

    Save yopurself some trouble next time....line your water pan with foil, fill it 3/4 full with clean sand and cover with foil.
    When your done smoking, replace the top layer of foil....easy clean-up and never add water again!

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    Here's a thought on play sand.

    At home depot they have 2 different types of play sand.

    They have a large grain in the concrete section and a finer grain sand in landscaping. The fine grain sand comes in smaller bags.

    So would one recomend a grain size or is sand just sand?

    Personally I would use the finer grain since it's smaller bags and cheaper.

    My thought....

    Finer grain=denser sand=better heat sink=more stable temps and heat retention.

    Pool filter sand is another option.
