What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a water smoker? My understanding is a water smoker is just a smoker with a water tray in it that keeps the air moist. It is also my understanding that some people that use this type of smoker will put aromatic liquids in the water tray like beer or apple juice.
On that show "Pit masters", they spritz their bbq a lot. Is that in place of a water smoker and for the same purpose?
I'd appreciate anyone's expertise on this.
