I first started cooking bbq in the late 60's. I have owned, cooked on and competeted on three Good-Ones, two Backwoods and 5 Weber Smokey Mountains......so I ain't no stranger to water smokers. I did think however that he said steam cookers, which I am familiar with.
With that said, let me say this, aside from what I mentioned ealier about steam not keeping the meat moist it also adds, depending on the size of what you are cooking, a significant amout of time to your cook. So as not to sound like a lab expert I will forgo how and why there is the added cook time, but it is very very simple science. I've cooked a chit ton of bbq in my lifetime and have experimented and kept notes. Still cook several times a week (cept in foul weather)....
But I do what to know why you think that steam keeps the meat moist on the inside...I think you just pulled that one out of your hat...
