  1. Wow. Tell us what you really think. My understanding is that a basket Simply helps with cleanout. My Vision has a tiny slot for cleanout.. If I don't want to use that inconvenient method, I have to pull out all the coal and clean it that way. A basket that I can shake out seems like a very good idea.
  2. There's two different versions available... https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.papc12x24x24expd-mtl-flattnd.1000126787.html And https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.papc34x24x24expd-mtl-flattnd.1000126788.html I guess it's half vs three quarters inch holes? Any suggestions as to which I should use?
  3. I've gotta find me some f this. KAB wants nearly $200cad to ship a vision basket to Canada.
  4. I hate Costco. Support your local butcher.
  5. You guys fricking ROCK!
  6. Ok, into a chili it goes. I'm not big on pork, so the butt idea doesn't work for me. I've done a couple of of Pot roasts into pepper stout beef, but I'm going to try another brisket, but wrap it in foil at 150 to see what happens. Thanks, guys! Jason
  7. Ok, I screwed it up. It's tough as boot leather. I thought it was probe tender but I guess not. I'll take your recommendation for the next one. But in the meantime, any way to salvage this brisket? What about steaming it? Thanks, Jason
  8. Hey all, I'm currently cooking up a 5lb flat. It's a fair bit thinner at one end, so it's reasonable to assume the thin end will be finished first. Should I test the thin end temp, and slice that off once it's done? Then leave the rest to cook? Or is there some other method? Thanks Jason
  9. Slice it really thin and dust with salt. Eat it cold, in sandwiches or salads.
  10. Imagine walking up that without hand rails....
  11. I have one of those. Had a problem with the grill probe reading wildly wrong. Sent an email to customer service and they had me try a hard reset. That didn't work, so they sent me a new probe overnight. Great customer service.
  12. It's the grill probe at fault. Was cooking steak last night and in the warm up phase I put both probes naked on the grill. The grill probe was reading about 150f less than the food probe. The food probe came within spitting distance of agreement with the dome gauge. What's strange is that the grill probe seems to work fine in boiling water and in my convection oven. It's only in the kamado that it screws up.
  13. I marinate in olive oil, Worcestershire and teriyaki for up to 4hrs (no more) and then grill hot and fast.
  14. I pretty much ran out of a full firebox of coal in 6 hours. The temp started dropping and there were just a few chunks left.
