I just got a Charbroil Silver Smoker. It's a big horizontal smoker similar to the Brinkmann Pitmaster style smokers.
Has anyone ever placed a pan of water, beer, apple cider, etc. on the grate above the coals/wood in the firebox while smoking to add moisture to the cooking environment? I know this is how a water smoker would work and I was just wondering if you could get similar results in the horizontal smoker this way.
My thought process here is to do a modification of the beer can chicken. Cooking many birds at one time without standing them up, but still achieve a similar taste.
