  1. taking this opportunity to share my gratitude for a tremendously positive experience with customer support at Vision Grills. Long story short, the two separate items i contacted them about were readily sorted and I continue to be one content customer. the two staff members (Zach and Melodie) i had the pleasure to trade emails and photos with (me sending pics of the areas of concern, and them sending back with highlighted items to pay special attention to) were nothing but professional and extremely helpful. as if their fantastic assistance wasn't enough, they have even elected to send me enough nomex to re & re my gaskets when it's time to do so. pretty hard to say no to that gesture. a sincere public Thank You, to Vision Grills and their excellent Customer Support.
  2. My XL Egg restoration

    can't help but think of this gem, when i read your updates
  3. My XL Egg restoration

    well done. let me know when to bring the proteins and some beverages :-)
  4. My XL Egg restoration

    now just some springs, a nest, a firebox, a cap, some grates and you'll be done
  5. great question, @cardcon i too am interested in this. as well as tricks to prevent, or alleviate, freezing of gaskets that may not allow one to open the lid without tearing. maybe just a firestarter cube in the ashtray (vision s) to slowly warm things and a bit of patience?
  6. A Simple Spatchcocked Bird...

    comfort food done right. bet it tasted as great as it looks.
  7. B&B competition char logs

    curious. are they hardwood product or coconut? or something else entirely?
  8. Fresh pork belly

  9. Another new Tshirt...

    love this one
  10. Canuck resource for custom cover?

    call-out to Canuck gurus that have had a custom cover for their grill/table/other outdoor items made at a Canadian facility or mom & pop shop. as I've recently migrated my grill from the rolling stand into a table, I'm now interested in having a cover made. more-so now that ol' man winter is soon upon us and I do not have the luxury of a covered outdoor space. for those that have had a custom cover made, who did you have make yours, and have you been very happy with the product you received from them? if you were to do it again, would you do anything differently in your cover? (tie-downs? loops/hooks? extra material on hard corners? type of material used?) four on my list for first-contact are; outdoorcovers.ca, Blue Tent (auto & marine upholstery) , Ottawa Awning (commercial & residential awnings), and L A Barber Upholstery (marine upholstery) I'm not resigned to a Canadian (or Ottawa area) source for this, but I'd like to shop at home first, if I can find what I want here. many thanks in advance, to all contributors.
  11. My XL Egg restoration

    if you had the specs, or could pull one off, maybe a shop like Ottawa Fasteners or similar would likely have something close enough. perhaps even one of the techs at Malmberg, out by Capital City, may have something similar
  12. XL BGE for $100... (in Ottawa, ON)

  14. XL BGE for $100... (in Ottawa, ON)
