Never had any issues with water unless it was quite cold outside. Only problem is refilling it when needed. Lava rock is good, just remember to cover it also with foil as you would the sand.

I have some ceramic briquettes leftover from my old Elec ECB, I wonder if those would work...and would they help the unit get above 300 degrees, I'd love to do chicken but it doesn't get past 280-ish.

Worth a try.
