  4. I will miss this place next year. I have really enjoyed reading and learning from all the great people here. I want to thank John for hosting such a great and diverse forum. I don't like FB but I did join yesterday at my wife's urging simply to be able to follow different kamado groups, and there are quite a few of them. Recipes and techniques can be stored in the file section on the FB page of the group you are a member of. I will miss all of you who don't migrate to FB and I do hope someone will try to emulate this great forum so I can join it. Good luck and God bless all of you. Thanks again John and the rest of the Kamado Guru members.

    One thing I dislike about my vision

    Or you could use one of the wooden scrapers like this https://www.amazon.com/Velesco-Wooden-Scraper-Cleaner-American/dp/B073W18BDM/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1534472875&sr=8-5&keywords=grill+scraper&smid=A3TJH268S25B03 After a couple of uses it conforms to the shape of your grates. It works pretty good and no skint knuckles because of the angle you use when scraping. I picked mine up at one of the big box stores for 5 or 6 dollars.

    Single grate setup with plate setter

    You can get a spider from https://ceramicgrillstore.com/collections/vision-pro-classic-b-grill-accessories-by-ceramic-grill-store/products/large-spider-vision Just turn it upside down and it will put the bottom grate about level with the lid opening.

    How do you get to 800F?

    No, actually molten glass is around 2100 degrees so a kamado has a ways to go. I used to work at Libbey Glass in Shreveport, La.

    Vision vs Pit Boss

    They are very similar and I think they are made by the same people ( I could be wrong about that ). They both have the same warranty on the ceramics and metal parts. Walmart had a couple of Pit Boss kamadoes last year at the end of the season for $165 and I waited too long to decide to get it. Pit Boss does have a larger version that Vision doesn't. I wouldn't have a problem getting one. I am happy with my Vision B and have not had any problems with it.

    Heat Shields

    I cut the handles off mine to use it for a deflector. I ordered the spider from https://ceramicgrillstore.com/collections/vision-pro-classic-b-grill-accessories-by-ceramic-grill-store/products/large-spider-vision and it fits down in it. It works well in that aspect. Or you could order the Adjustable Rig Spider Combo from them for a more versatile cooking setup.

    "A Burger to Believe in"

    Get the attachment. My wife will make her own breakfast sausage, grind a blend of pork, venison, and beef for great chili meat. Just make sure the meat is cold. Works great for occasional meat grinding.

    Vision S or Vision B?

    I have the B from Sams club. It works great and simple to use. The local Sams has it for $499 right now .

    Pizza Stone

    Well I've been trying to upload the pictures of my pizza setup but I keep getting an error message after it shows uploaded. It does this on my phone, laptop and main computer. Oh well, on the top rack I put 3 fire brick or the CI deflector. Then 3 pottery feet that are 1.5 " thick on their side. Finally the pizza stone. This gets the pizza way up in the dome about even with the thermometer. It has been really working well with tis setup.
