  1. Paint Coming Off Vision B Vent Cap

    You can order a cast iron cap from Vision.
  2. Joe jr stand

    A friend built this for me. I love it.
  3. First cook on the JR!

    Costco pork butts usually come 2 to a pack. You can always freeze one. I have three 6 lb ones in the freezer right now and they will fit nicely on the Jr. One at a time of course.
  4. My mom always grated American cheese, added pimentos, mayo and salt and pepper. Loved it. She was from North Carolina.
  5. Vision pro S series experiences?

    I have had a Vision Pro C for six years. I love it. I have never had my firebox crack. Installed new gaskets after the first ones wore out. I did order the nomex ones. I have spent way more in toys for it than the grill costs but I wanted them. I did buy a Kamado Joe Jr. this winter and I find I am using that much more now because there are only two of us. It heats up much faster but for large cooks ( I will be smoking bacon next week), the Vision serves my purposes. I can't imagine getting anything bigger now.
  6. I have to agree with you. I got my Kamado Jr this winter. I don't think I have used my other grill since. I was just talking to the Kamado joe rep today at Costco in Gig Harbor Washington. He also has a Jr and it is the only grill he uses. They had an open bag of the big lump there. I can't imagine using it in a Jr. Unless you broke it up.
  7. roadshow score

    I have found that the lump is so big that it won't work in my Jr without taking a hatchet to it. I will have to stick with Royal Oak or the coconut briquettes I have stacked up in a weak buying moment. Nice to have large lump for my Vision though.
  8. Accessory storage

    I have a large deck box. I think it is made by Lifetime. It keeps everything dry. I have had it three years and it is going strong. I think it was just under $200 on Amazon. It holds a lot of stuff. I have all my smoking wood in three large bins I got as Costco and there is still room for my joetisserie. Cast iron Dutch ovens and extra gear.
  9. I cook in a 5.5 qt Le Creuset. It is usually the knob that can't go over 500 degrees. You can get a metal one to replace the other one. I actually encase the pot and lid in foil for easy cleanup. I actually am doing a chuck roast in it as we speak. It fits my Jr without the deflector.
  10. I'm really liking Kamado Joe lump

    A lot of ash but it needs to be used up. It's pretty easy to clean the Jr so I can live with it.
  11. Juicy Lucy burgers

    A juicy LUCY has the cheese stuffed in the middle. I also add grilled onions with it. Make your patties thin, stuff then mash the patties together around the edges. Doesn't get much better than that.
  12. I'm really liking Kamado Joe lump

    Oh, my bag also says restaurant lump.
  13. I'm really liking Kamado Joe lump

    I just opened my first bag of Kamado joe that I got at the Costco roadshow. The pieces were so large that my husband took a hatchet to some so they would fit. I will not be able to use them in my Jr. I will use Royal Oak in it. I am now using the coconut charcoal that a bunch of us bought a couple of years ago from Williams Sonoma. I had forgotten how much ash they produce but need to use them up so they are out of the shed. Happy Grilling.
  14. Smokin' some Pork Belly

    Our Costco carried both slices and slabs. I am sure you can get a whole slab f you ask. They could be in a different cooler also.
  15. Layered Turkey and rice meatloaf

    Great job Jeri. I think our weather is turning the corner. Hot next week.
