I use the "Piedmont Pan" mod, with my WSM pan mounted atop a Brinkmann pan, with about 1" space between them. So, I use both... or neither, depending on how you look at it. I also have a Stoker to mind the temperature, so not having water (or sand) as a heat sink isn't a problem.

But originally I used the Brinkmann pan (left over from a Brinkmann Gourmet I started out with). I have never cooked with the WSM pan alone.

I have a Brinkman pan buried in the garage on an old electric smoker.
I didn't know it could be used on a WSM.

Yep the Brinkmann "charcoal" pan can be used as an oversized water pan!

On the cheapest ECB (the $28 one), the water pan is too small to use in a WSM - you have to use the charcoal pan. On the slightly bigger (and much easier to use) Brinkmann Gourmet, the larger pan is used as the water pan. So you need the big Brinkmann pan; whether it's a charcoal pan or a water pan depends on which Brinkmann you got it from.

Is anyone using the clay pot base? I picked one up Half Price Pots for $13.99, I have not used it yet but it gets favorable reviews. Check it out on the Stoker site.

I made the Piedmont pan with two Brinky charcoal pans. I love it. I think I have a .5" gap between pans.

Thanks for clearing that up Larry. The water pan I have is way to small.

I use 'em both. Like Willey T, the one I use depends on the cook. It's usually the Brinkman for overnights and the Weber for most others.

I use the Weber pan with sand.
The Brinkman pan with water.
The Weber pan with foil in it.
The Weber pan empty.
The Brinkman pan with the weber pan above it.

The Guru with the Weber pan and foil.
The Guru with no pan.

A pizza stone with a deep dish pizza pan on top of it.

No pan

I think that's it.

BTW: I didn't vote because............... There was no "All of the above".

For things like butts that take all day, I use a Brinkman pan with water. For shorter cooks I use a Weber pan with water, mainly because it's easier than the Brinkman pan to cover with foil.

(I've never put anything except water in the water pan.)
