Desert Manliness

How manly is food cooked in the desert?
You pile wood onto the top of the jeep, haul it out to the middle of nowhere, light it on fire, break the coals up into little pieces, and then proceed to cook rice, potatoes, and chicken with the heat.
At one point, the desert master was cooking rice without water. I asked in whatever Arabic I could muster, "Why is there no water?" The reply (in a mix or Arabic and English), "In the desert, there is no water, so we must cook without it. We will add a little bit at the end."
Is there anything these guys can't do?

It probably would've been more manly to say desert fox blood...

Hi Kent, since you are a fellow foodie, I have tagged you with a food meme on my blog. Hope you don't mind.
