Got a brand new 14.5. first cook 4 hour chicken. Noticed the texture on the outside part of the water pan changed from the smooth texture to that similar to aluminum door. Is it normal?

Yeah, the bottom of mine definitely does that. Pretty sure it's creosote, especially since it's so close to the fire.
