    • @Panchango @brandon78   I updated the original post to accommodate your suggestions...    
    • Interesting idea. Looks delicious. Definitely something unusual.    BTW - point n shoot doing a decent job.   
    • Controlling the heat by how much fuel you load in there is wrong thinking.. You should fill the lump to the top of the fire bowl vent holes, start a small fire in the center at the lowest level and cover that area with more lump. leave the top open for 15 minutes or so and then close the lid and set the vents to less than 1/4 open and let it run for an hour or until it reaches your target temp. Then reduce the vent openings to about 1/4 inch top and 1/2 inch bottom and see where the temp stabilizes. The airflow causes the lump to burn, the more air the hotter it gets, the less the cooler it runs. After a 12 hour cook at 275 you will still have enough lump left to do another complete cook.
    •   Thanks.. I need to clarify that and add some information about cooking direct.  I never cook mine direct so I just overlooked that option.
    •   I measure the breast instead of the thigh because it will be the last part of the turkey to get done.  It doesn't really matter what the thigh/leg temperature is because they can't come off before the breast.  
    • No matter our situation and circumstance in life there is always at least some little thing to be thankful for. Sometimes, I know, it may take a magnifing glass or even a microscope or satalite map to find it, but I am betting it is always there. My wife and I are blessed in abundance, and have no trouble seeing how fortunate we are. We both send out prayers and love to ya all. Enjoy your family, friends, and loved ones. The food we cook on our kamados is wonderful, but in truth, it's family, friends, and loved ones, that draw us to do what we do.  Happy Thanksgiving.    Grace and Peace
    • You opened it too much.  Temp was coming down as you had requested. You opened it back up and got hotter than you wanted. Which means you opened it too much.    Simple enough.    Weather and different charcoal means means the old settings aren’t the same settings. Every cook is different.    How were you measuring temp?  I’ve been through 2 TruTemps and a couple others. Nothing works as well as my ThermoWorks Smoke or Maverick 335 through the top vent. 
    •   This might not be the answer you are looking for, but the Vision two level grates aren't bad, but there are some other options out there too.  The Ceramic Grill Store has a number of different options that will fit the Vision.  The adjustable rig gives you a lot of flexibility.  They are having Black Friday sale that runs from Black Friday through Cyber Monday with 10% off on combos and 25% off on some accessories  - you might want to take a peek.   And if you really want the Vision grates, just call their customer service and I'm sure they can take care of you.
