How does everyone handle this ? Do you add a water vessel to the bake or use a high hydration dough ?

I assume you mean for baking bread. I use a garden sprayer like this:

If you fully load the oven with bread, you get the best results...

When doing a less than full oven I use a Bowl filled with Lava rock and pour 1 cup of water on the rocks after loading the bread.

Nice looking loaves Chip .

I spray the dome, and also leave a cast iron pot with water in it inside the oven.
