    Not Dustin, But I think he means he puts foil over his water pan. But he doesn't wrap the pan tightly. Leaving a pocket of air between the foil and the bottom of the water pan. Which keeps the grease that drips down into the foil\pan from burning.
    Burning grease is what i was after when I bought the fire dial. But I still have yet to use it again just because after that first cook with it i honestly don't like the smell. I think grease dripping down into the fire where it immediately burns is one thing. But having it drip down into a dry water pan,or on top of the fire dial is another. Like if your cooking pork you get a burnt bacon smell. And I am sure if you have enough meat on there you get a burnt bacon taste.
    That is why so far i have only tried my fire dial once. Maybe I havn't given it much of a chance. But I think my terra cotta saucer foiled and sitting on top of the dry water pan is the best way for me to go. Which pretty much does what Dustin is talking about. It leaves a huge air pocket in the water pan. So the grease that drips down doesn't burn.

    Not to horn in but that's what I do when foiling my dry water pans. My foil has a concave shape when in place and I leave substantial dead air space between the foil and pan bottom. This also reduces the use of foil.

    I'm sorry I somehow totally missed this, but Fred adequately explained it. I saw a video with Phil in Florence using a firedial on his Kettle for some reason. He may have another with the WSM. It's kind of interesting but I find that the pan works fine. I occasionally do use water, just not very often.

    Hi All Would the Firedial work sitting on the water pan brackets and hanging some ribs in a WSM 22"?
    Also where can I buy the Firedial and a couple of meat hooks from the same online store?
    THanks Dan

    I think your view on all of the hype is very distorted. As far as I know I am the only person to try one in this thread,and I have only used it once,and the results weren't really what I expected. But only using it once I havn't really given it much of a chance either.
    I hope it works out for you. Let us know how it turns out
