In the past, I have used a pan filled with water when smoking my ribs. However, after doing some reading on SMF, I noticed that some of you use sand.
Naturally, this lead me to have a few questions.
So, here they are:
1. I was just going to get a bag of play sand from Meanrds (local home improvement chain). I was wondering if this type of sand would add some kind of funky flavor to the meat?
2. Is adding water to the sand necessary, or is there already enough moisture in it? (I realize that water may need to be added during the smoking process)
Since this is my first attempt at using sand, I was just curious how the seasoned (no pun intended) users of sand so it.
