Newp, no offense taken in the least. I appreciate the responses. That is why I asked...I wanted to hear it from folks using the good Ol' Bandera. In the past I have cooked in large offset cookers and had great results with no using water. However, this little guy is so compact I wanted to hear from the horses mouth what the real deal was using the pan.
After reading those threads and sifting through the irrelevant comments I did come away with the fact that by using sand or water I will achieve the same end product. With that said I will not be going in dry! =)
