    I used to keep the water pan in my GOSM foiled, and that works.
    Then I discovered sand. Filled it with playground sand from the local Big Box store and never looked back. Beats the water thing big time. And DON'T get me started with the "puts moisture in the meat" thing. If you believe that I have some nice beach front property in Kansas you may be interested in.
    BTW - DON'T put water in the sand! It boils and erupts, throws sand on your eats. Leave the sand dry!
    And change it after a few cooks so it doesn't get rancid and stinky.

    I found the water pan cleans up real easy by coating the outside with dishwashing liquid and letting it sit for 10-15 minutes; flip it over and do the same to the inside - dunk it in a sink of hot water and it scrubs up nice and clean with very little effort.

    Why do you want it to be clean?

    Ya know, way back when, when I was just a little shaver, I was dumb enough to ask my mother that same kind of question .... once.

    I guess I'll just blame my mother. I clean things...

    I did this on my ECB as well. Much easier to deal with. But once I got the drum....

    Replacement pans for the ECB are cheap. I say dump tham and then just butn out what's left.

    Course, those that know me know that I've never been big on cleaning up.

    The drum will solve all these problems.

    A full foil pan fits perfectly inside my grease pan in the FEC. Very Nice, saves lots of messy cleanup, doesn't help you though

    And many more as well.

    For example, I wanted to smoke some burnt ends from the left over point of one of the briskets we did last weekend.

    The charcoal was already in it, I just lit it up with the cane torch, threw on a couple little hickory splits, and 20 minutes later, we were cooking. AND, I will be able to do the same thing about 4 or 5 more times before refueling. Is there anything more convenient?
