Sorry if this is answered somewhere else in the forums. My rib setup had a 9 x 13 foil tray with about 2 inches of water, sitting on the plate setter, with legs up. When I put the grate on top of the plate setter, the ribs were very close to the water. The temperature at the grill was about 275. About an hour into the cook, the water in the tray was almost boiling, and it looked like the ribs were in a steam bath. Something didnt seem right about this, so I covered the water pan in foil and poked a few holes in it.
I am interested in how everyone else uses water pans for ribs, butts, roasts, etc. Should the pan be steaming up the ribs above it?
