BB - my motive for using sand is that I am far too lazy to clean out the crud left behind
when the water boils off. I kept forgetting to check the water pan until it was too late.
So now, sand. It's a heat sink but not a moisturizer.
Anyways, lot's of threads have touched on this. Lot's of good info in those threads
too. Have fun reading them and then try out things for yourself.
