  1. I poured the concrete top in 2 halves. Mainly it make it easy to flip over after curing in the forms. One whole slab would have been EXTREMELY heavy! But also figured it would be a little less stress in the middle. I love the lights----below is link I used for my concrete top and lights. Only thing I added was a "channel" I created when the concrete was wet to install the strip lights in it so they shined down without actually seeing the strip. https://www.diypete.com/make-concrete-pub-table/
  2. I'm mostly finished with the table for my Vision Grill. I built the skeleton of the table in pine, then covered it with cedar trim, using some cedar fence pickets on the back and sides to cut down on the cost. Stained with Cabot Gold. For the concrete top, I built a form, and used charcoal colorant in the Sakrete 5000 mix. Before pouring, I added various beach glass and rocks found at the Indiana Dunes to show up on the top. I cut foam insulation to leave the void for the grill. I also put down 4 inch square acrylic glass, with insulation above for a lighting effect. After pouring, I created a "channel" around the edge which I used to insert an LED light strip inside after curing. One side of the storage will house my Blackstone grill, along with the propane tank. Then I have plenty of storage for accessories and charcoal in the other. I'm not a woodworker at all---simply looked at other tables online and devised a plan. Lots of work, but love it!
  3. Hi, I got the Kamado Joe Divide and Conquer grill racks as a gift. Unfortunately it does't fit my Vision Grill correctly. I had it in the grill for a bit, but it's virtually brand new. $30 shipped.
  4. All done. Lots of work, but worth it.
  5. Still need? I have a brand new set I bought to replace mine on the Vision S, but ended up making a table.
  6. So after months of research, I finally started on my table for my Vision S. Pine skeleton, covered in cedar. Just poured the concrete top last night. But then I realized...the Vision Grill has that insert part that juts out further than the circumference in the middle----will I be able to lower that onto the table, or will I have to take it apart? The grill is 22 inches wide, and I made the opening 24 inches.
  7. Good idea. I have an entire arsenal of car care products. Can't see how it would hurt.
  8. I agree with you. But the wife sure liked how it was going to match other things on the deck.
  9. Anyone else just get a Chili Red grill from Home Depot and notice it's not even close to the deep red they have on their site? It's almost got a pinkish hue to it. Can't wait to try it, but waited 3 weeks for this color, and now a bit bummed.
  10. Is there any advantages/disadvantages on buying a Kamado Joe flexible rack, asscessory rack, and pair of half moon deflectors instead of getting a Woo Ring setup of the same? Thanks!
  11. My Vision from Home Depot should be delivered in a couple weeks, so I'm trying to get all the extras to go along with it. I ordered the Woo Ring with 2 15" half moon ceramic stones for smoking and using one for 2 zone grilling. I also have a 14" cast iron Round Griddle coming. My question is...when I want to bake a pizza, can I use the CI round griddle as a deflector, and use the 2 moons for the pizza? Thanks!
  12. New owner (soon--it's ordered) too. Quick question, do you use your GG without a deflector in your Vision for such things as steaks?
  13. With my 12yo, trusty Weber gas grill about to rust thru, and my electric smoker only working on grass because of a short, it was time for a new grill. Sure, I've seen kamado grills at my local pool store, but never knew they are exactly what I've been wanting. Thanks to all the awesome info on this site, I ended up starting with a Vision---should be home delivered in a few weeks. Looking forward to getting started and learning from the real gurus---hopefully I'll have experiences to add to help others in the future. Always great to start a new hobby. Living close to the tip of Lake Chicago, mine include hiking in the dunes. I'm a basketball ref in the winter, we just started beekeeping last spring (up to 2 hives and had 80lbs of honey last year). I planted 6 different varieties of hops last year, so next year I'm diving into beer making. BBQ and homemade brew sounds good, huh?
