I've always managed to steer clear of the water vs. sand debate, but
hear goes: Assuming you heat 1 square meter each of sand and water
to 200F, the sand will cool off quicker than the water
Ummm... it's very hard to pour a square meter of either, but your
chances are better with sand. How 'bout maybe a cubic foot of each?
Do you, by the way, have anything to back up your assertion that,
given equal volumes and identical containers, water will hold heat
But there is also this--heat equal amounts of each to 200F for an
hour, you'll still have the same quantity of sand. Not so, water.
But yes, water works fine--I used it for almost two years in my
current pit, and for 2 or 3 years in the one I had 12-14 years ago
(Brinkmann's Cook'n Cajum) and had good results. I like the results
with the sand a bit better, and the cleanup a LOT better.
There's a massive hole in the whole discussion.
Change the temperature under discussion to 250, or any other number higher
Water cannot be hotter than 212.
What will cool down faster, sand at 275, or water at 211?
Case closed, with no need to actually look up which one cools down faster.
Well, I'm sure Sqwertz picked 200 as a fairly high temp that's below
212. And I'd still like to know which would, in that postulated
event, cool faster.
Your point is of course on the beam.

an offence that isn't nailed down, they take it ;-)
