No water pan. I haven't really found a need for it. I do inject the shoulders with a mix of apple juice, water, leftover rub, etc and I think that helps. I don't have a wireless therm yet...but honestly, I don't really need it with the drum. Once I've got it at the temp I want (240-250 in this case), it doesn't budge. I've done enough butts to know that at this temp, they're gonna take at least 8-12 hours, depending on weight. These I had in the smoker for 12 hours exactly and they almost fell apart in my hands before I could get em in the foil to rest for a few hours.
