    New Deflector Stone

    I use this and just cut the handles off. Work great as a deflector. https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/outdoor-gourmet-14-in-preseasoned-round-griddle#repChildCatid=27890
  2. I watched the Franklin you tube on prepping and smoking a brisket and all mine turned out good. I think wrapping it in the pink butcher paper really helps.
  3. Being from North Louisiana we don't usually get extremely cold weather. That being said, I have cooked in the mid 20's. Just start the lump the normal way I always do. It does take longer to come up to temp because the ceramics are colder but I bring mine up slow anyway.

    KJ Classic II heat

    If the firebox was red and the temp only showed 370, it sounds like you temp gauge is wonkers.

    I have no issues with the bark but I guess that's just me.

    I just turn the spider upside down if I want the bottom grate at the felt line. It works but I only do that if I'm not using a deflector. I plan on getting the adjustable rig for Christmas or next year sometime. I use a 14" cast Iron griddle ( from Acadamy cost $13 ) with the handles cut off as my deflector right now with the spider. I also use the griddle as a griddle on the grates.

    Congrats on the "B", I really enjoy mine. You may want to look at the Ceramic Grill Store online. They have just about everything you could want for your Vision B. They have stones, spiders, drip pans , adjustable rigs and a lot more. Also get you some welders gloves to handle your hot grates and stones.

    Questions about B & B Lump!

    I like the hickory or the mesquite. Don't have a problem with either one of those. Got one bag of the oak one time that had a strange smell after I lit it but the rest of them have been fine. I do like B&B overall and Wally World has it for $12.88 here.

    top vent red knob

    Exactly. It holds the top vent wide open and you regulate the temps with the propane burner like on a gas stove.

    Time to Jump !!!!

    I really like mine even though I paid $549. I have no regrets.
