  1. I think the above poster is referring to an Akron non ceramic. I got a vision diamond cut classic b from sams ($450ish full price, goes on sale sometimes for real cheap ~300). I am very happy with it and would buy again. I bought a KJ divide and conquer grate setup which is great. I wouldn’t want the vision model with the electric starter as it would be a pain in the butt and more spots for air to leak in/out. Of the the other brands you mentioned, I personally wouldn’t consider those. Maybe a KJ classic if I were to spend more (but if you get a vision and a new grate setup it’s still significantly cheaper)
  2. I find the meats come out better when you take the sticker off
  3. Also the vision pro has a 19” grate but really is about the same size as the joe..
  4. If only between those two choices, go with the Kamado Joe. You’ll be much happier with it’s grate setup. Or if your near a sams club pick up a vision classic B from there, full price 499 but if your patient, you can wait for it to be on sale. or pick up a used one, just as good and buy the new things you’d like (ie grate, custom table).
  5. So why choose a custom made carbon steel grate vs a stainless? I’m probably going to get one, but leaning towards stainless.. I love my carbon steel pan (I don’t even use my cast iron pan anymore), but I sometimes neglect my grill a few days in between use and I’d be afraid the carbon steel grate would rust...
  6. My wife likes fall off the bone ribs, just smoke uncovered till 160ish then wrap and cook till internal temp of 205-208ish..
  7. As the other person said, I also close my bottom vent and I often close all the vents down for a minute or two after I open the grill for too long.. this shuts down the fire from building too much, then open them back up to where I had it before after a few minutes
  8. Hey, Question: Is it significantly better to smoke on the upper grate (ie. closer to the dome and less direct heat)? I have a vision classic B, with the double grate. I almost exclusively cook on the upper grate, and do all of my smoking on the upper grate. I really only use lower grate to put my drip pan on. I really like the look and simplicity of the single grate setups with the spider woo and would like to get one of the custom stainless grates. Can anyone comment on if this would be less ideal than my current setup, since it is further from the dome and closer to the coals/diffuser stone? Also, how would you put a drip pan and a stone in the spider woo setup? thanks
  9. Hey, 90% of the time I only cook on the upper grate and find the two tiered vision system to be a pain in the butt. I want to switch to a single grate and get one of the custom SS grates from likely east Georgia metals. Does anyone know of any if the plate setters for big green egg or KJ fit the fire bowl of the vision and be stable enough? I read that some of the plate setters fit but just barely and don’t seem secure. Also, how high does the plate setter raise the grate? About the level of the gasket/lid opening? i have the vision diamond cut B series if that changes anything thanks!
  10. Thanks, how does the fan mount to the ash tray since our ash tray has screen rather than just a hole like others?
  11. Which temperature controller would y’all recommend for the vision diamond series? I don’t see that any company has one that has a specific adapter for the diamond series.. I’ve been looking at the partyq and the iq110 due to their price point and overall simplicity.. any recommendations? thanks
  12. No affiliation.. just thought I’d help .. to be honest the titan basket isn’t a great fit for the vision but it’s not terrible.. I’m guessing it was made to fit the green egg or something
  13. I bought the titan basket too since I couldn’t justify spending so much money on a glorified fruit basket.. it works great just is a bit small.. has about a 2” gap all the way around.. still fits plenty of charcoal though
  14. I bought the titan charcoal basket. It’s great quality and works well. I bought it for my vision diamond classic, it could be bigger.. it has about a 2” gap all the way around so it definitely is not a snug fit.. I just couldn’t justify paying the ridiculous price for a glorified fruit basket..
