  1. Hey there guys, so I'm looking for advice or info to put my worries to rest hopefully. So I got a replacement rubber gasket kit for my ash door from vision but when I was doing it I ran out of the silicone they sent me maybe 3/4 of the way through. So I went and grabbed what I thought was my tube of clear silicone to keep going and low and behind it's something else, not particularly sure as it says nothing other than "clear" on it but it's from DAP whom makes vinyl products so I'm guessing it may be a vinyl sealant. What I'm worried about is that I know silicone is inert when cured but vinyl is not, especially ones hat are "mildew resistant" which this one is, they have Algecides and other [emoji90] in them and do not have the temperature resistance that silicone does. What I'm wondering is how worried should I be about it? Should I be planning to pull the gasket again and completely clean as best I can and redo it all once it's cured (Easier to clean) or should I just fire it up get it to around 500 degrees and keep it there for a while like I was already planning to do to attempt to burn off what I can Note: I really don't want to do it again but will if I must, I wouldn't care except that it is where all the fresh air goes by so I'm afraid that toxic gases could be taking a free ride with the fresh air right to the food whenever that area gets hot/warm/ all the time Sigh...

  2. The random pictures thread...

    You say something? Also, I saw this on the way to work Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Burgers and Smoke

    Welllll that's not true But because of the ash drawers design it makes them inherently not as airtight as other versions/models/methods Mine does the same as you can see here Interestingly enough though it's not my door that is leaking it's actually the grill side where the gasket is attached to the grill is leaking from behind it where they siliconed it not the gasket to gasket seal between the draw and grill I contacted vision and they sent me a new gasket and silicone to remove he grill one and reattach it but I have done it, I noticed as I've been using it (and I don't clean out the ash and bits of charcoal) it's been getting better/manageable, I figure that the left overs must be making less airflow possible thus helping it. Biggest problem I have is I can only have the lid open for 1 minute or less otherwise I get a raging fire as the air fuels the coals leaking through lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Crack in the firebox

    Whyd you return it? I haven't cleaned mine out since I changed lump brands, I just stir it around, try and push the small stuff through the grate and load more in, I notice when I leave it in there I get better control than freshly cleaned, I think it's because the ash drawer gasket (grill side not drawer side) leaks. I figured the small bits of ash and charcoal must be dampening the air a bit, makes me wonder now if mine is cracked lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Using a Chimney in a Classic B

    I used a chimney for the first couple times and although I've used it in the past fine I didn't like that I couldn't dump it easily and it all sat right under the opening and then I had to try to spread out a bunch of hot coals and I didn't like that Ended up getting the electric lighter and I think it works pretty good, it does concentrate the heat in the area of where the lighting grate is but I'm okay with that as I then have a centralized hot spot that I can choose to put things directly over if they need the heat or set it away from it if they don't need it as t creates like a pill shaped heat area and if you could long enough it of course spreads out The only thing that you have to do is consider that is not a one amount of time fits all lights, if you wanna be roasting real fast leave it in there for 12 or so minutes if you wanna do a low and slow about 8 minutes is perfect or even 5 and you let it grow on its own But I think if I get more into the low and slows I will do a light cube or the cotton ball in the middle of the pile, that way it's a much more controlled and even burn. But for anything else the electric lighter is great Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks! I know most of the good looking parts are hidden in the two with lettuce, but trust me, they were good ha. This was definitely an eye opener for how good they can be! Allows much more creativity than restaurant ordered ones Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. So my wife and I made pizzas for the first time but it wasn't in the kamado, I didn't have a second ceramic stone and Walmart was all out as was HD so we said screw it (cause we had all the other ingredients purchased that day) and did it in the oven, I'd say they came out pretty good! Didn't have the wood smoke flavor but definitely glad we got the experience doing it They came out pretty good for the first attempt! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Haha, the frugality is what lets him pay 150$ for 6 lbs of beef [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Low Tech Accessories

    Hahaha although I feel that it would probably work in the house, I did mean the charcoal chimney If you wanna get a camp fire roaring especially if you've got wet wood it works wonders too [up] same warning applies though, I've have hunks of wood blow off logs before whilst on fire and zoom right past my head, I generally duck in cover now when doing it haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Low Tech Accessories

    Also works good to get the fire going in a chimney! Watch out for the explosions though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Haha thanks! I'm worried about it being too small actually [emoji38] I coulda sworn the BGE's have a smaller top rather than bigger Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Does this fit a vision? As that's what I'm running Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Haha it worked like a charm! I think if I ever have a rain issue I will do it the same way again I wasn't worried about it with the kamado per say, I was honestly worried it was gonna melt the salt block haha it was dripping right on it! Snow on the ground... It snowed today! Haha. Where are you located enjoying the fine weather you lucky dog Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Here it is ! How's it look I am cooking on a salt block for the first time and noticed rain was collecting in the top vent and then dripping right onto the salt block! Couldn't have that on my brand new block! So I found a (5$) beach umbrella, suck it in the ground and so far it's working nicely! What have you guys had to do and come up with?

  15. Hmmm just so everyone knows... my Walmart has the 17 lb bags for 7$ (and the 15's for 8$ for some reason) so I got three bags for the same as two 15 lbs from Hd and I returned the ones to HD haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
