In praise of OVEN pressure cookers

ok,not really pressure cookers but could be anything from the portuguese cataplana,through smoker bags to film cooking bags/foil.anything that goes in the oven sealed so does build up a bit of pressure.
i like this method of cooking as i find that the food cooks quicker,stays moist,more tasty & there's less oven cleaning!
some of my favourites are portuguese clam or mussel & pork cataplana,barbeque pork ribs in a smoker bag & paprika chicken a la "season & shake" bag.ok call the good taste cops if you will but i saw these kits advertised on the tv,bought one & it was really pretty good.now i just buy the oven bags,make up my own seasoning & cock a snook(olde englishe phrase for flipping off) at colmans of norfolk(makers of the best english mustard in the universe & "season & shake")
ok,back to business,do you use this technique and,if so,what's your fav recipe(s)?

I'm all for making things moist Harry.

I use oven bags and "wrap and roast" - both from Lakeland. In particular I find fish and chicken work really well much better in a parcel to seal in the juices. If all else fails just a good old bit of foil to make a parcel works great too.

I like using my Peka to create a bit of pressure, this vid shows an old Croatian lady who has had more outdoor Peka's than I could shake a stick at.
Ps the music is a traditional Croatian Folk song about the benefits of a large Peka for big parties.

So, is peka a dish/recipe or the pot she cooked it in or the method? Is the word something like barbecue, in that could be the food or the method or the grill?
