    • Looong time KAMADO experience(since the ‘60s) presently have a Char-Broil Kamander and am awaiting proper part to complete assembly of my Weber Summit E6.
    • So I was going back and forth between the Kamado Joe Classic I or a Vision Pro grill, even entertained the thought of the Kamado Joe Classic II but it seemed way to expensive and the only difference was the hinge, I figure I can lift the lid fine and can use the extra money to buy accessories. I think the Divide and Conquer won me over, seems more versatile to me.   So.... What do you guys think I should get for it first? I'm thinking of course the cover , and then the charcoal basket, anything else I should look at right away?   Any secret tips or pointers for me?    Thanks.
    • Well I opted for and just bought a Kamado Joe Classic I, they will deliver it Monday. I liked the option of the Divide and Conquer thing, and looks to be lots more accessories for the KJCI than for the Vision and I suppose a lot of them will work in either.
    • This. The only time I worry about the ash that collects under there is when I'm already taking things apart for a cleaning. It does not affect airflow one bit.
    • Two soapstones. I definitely need that.
    • The corrosion part could be a good point, and I just bought the Kamado Joes Classic I
    • If you think ceramics provide any big advantage over an insulated steel kamado, you may want to do some additional research.  I've had a Vision, BGE, Broil King Keg, and now use the Weber.  They've all had pros/cons, but heat retention was not significantly different in any (except the Keg, which blew all the others away...it was TOO efficient in some ways). In your South Carolina temps, mostly irrelevant anyways...I cook at -20 in winters here 1/2 the year.  Being where you are, I would probably suggest the biggest "pro" for a ceramic is corrosion resistance.
