Cooling the water is highly over-rated in my opinion. A proper set up will smoke cool enough regardless of water temperature, and give stronger flavor.
That's what I was hinting at from the first post, although I'm guilty of adding ice in the base also.
I'm kinda skeptical to try warm water.. sounds gross to me, but I guess if I don't like it just dump and replace.
But people definitely go overboard with trying to cool the water down...
especially the guy that wanted to put dry ice in there... just wow lmao.
