    Listen to this advice! You'll go nuts if you follow all the weird suggestions about clay pots, sand in the water pan, etc. Chris has been using this cooker since Ben Franklin was flying kites and he knows what he's talking about. Weber calls it a water pan for a reason.

But sometimes I wonder if this success is attributed to no water, a little more experience--including being less anal--or better performance by way of seasoned bullets.
    Why don't you post this as a new thread as you'll probably get more response than on a replacement water pan thread.

    Reply is almost a year old, I doubt he's looking for a response.

    Just to add, if anyone is looking for the Brinkmann charcoal pan, Sports Authority used to carry them, although they may be long gone by now.

    In the old days, many hardware stores carried porcelain wash pans. I wonder if one of those would fit the 18" WSM? (provided the pans are still available)
