Anyone here use sand in their smokers? If so how and what sort would be best regular, sharp sand, etc?

I use regular playground sand in the water pan of my WSM.Covered with foil this makes for very easy cleanup.
Just make sure you take new sand from the hardware store, not the sand from the playground with the dog poo mixed within. :wink:

Playground sand here. I've got a bunch of paver sand here, may give that a whirl, but probably no different!:lol:

Black sand from the beaches of Hawaii.



Just kidding, but I can see this becoming the next big debate (after the whole fat up/down thing is settled).

I use playground sand in my WSM and my Backwoods. Spice turn your head here .. . I am going to give the large Spicewine a run this weekend without water to see how that flies, to big a pain to do sand in there.

I use sand in the bandera. I used to use water/apple juice/beer/etc. but then the pan got a hole burnt in it and I switched to sand wrapped in foil. I can't tell a big difference either way.
