Water Pan Smokers
For years pitmasters wrangled with the dilemma of how to produce the taste and
tenderness that gets you to the stage and still get a good night's sleep. The
low and slow method does produce fantastic barbecue, but staying up all night
feeding logs to an offset smoker can take a toll on a cook. The obvious step was
to turn up the heat, but cooking hot and fast tends to dry out the product. The
solution? Just add water!
Southern Q water pan smokers enable you to cook at temperatures well above 300 degrees and still acheive perfect tenderness because the meat is protected from the hot fire by a large water pan. The water pan both adds moisture to the cooking environment and gives the pitmaster better control over temperature spikes. Featuring an insulated cabinet, large firebox and easy-fill water pan system,
these smokers are the secret weapon of some of the most successful BBQ teams on
the circuit today!

the you see it appear in the sight gage.
