  1. It should smooth out over a few cooks with the grease build up.
  2. Do not rely on the dome thermometer, mine is not that accurate. Mine was reading 200 degrees when it was really 338 degrees with a remote probe clipped on the top grate. It also reads 500 degrees when it is actually 781 degrees. Also fill your firebox up, mine is about 1 inch below the deflector.
  3. I don't know, mine don't even touch the ceramic top. It has not been a problem.
  4. Ceramic Grill Store is your friend https://ceramicgrillstore.com/collections/pit-boss-24-kamado-grill-costco
  5. We are on our 2nd one in 20 years. The first one only lasted 18 years. Really great for just about anything. Just be sure to use quality bag material and it will save you a lot of problems down the road.
  6. Been doing the MCT oil a couple of months and it took me 2 or 3 days to adjust to it. It took my wife a week or so to adjust. It gives you the right medium chained triglycerides to burn and use. I don't see any more energy.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. If the firebox was red and the temp only showed 370, it sounds like you temp gauge is wonkers.
  11. I have no issues with the bark but I guess that's just me.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Exactly. It holds the top vent wide open and you regulate the temps with the propane burner like on a gas stove.
  16. I really like mine even though I paid $549. I have no regrets.
  17. Yes, finally found some Western lump at one of the Walmart's for $7.88 for a 30 lb bag. Looks OK, Probably go get some more.
  18. My Dr. told me I needed to lose weight. After asking me what I typically ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, he said I was a carbaholic. He recommended a ketogenic diet. The wife and I started watching Dr. Ken Berry, MD. ( on you tube ) the first part of July. He has a lot of videos explaining nutrition and the effects of poor nutrition. Fatty liver, fatty pancreas, and other maladies are explained and how to nutritionally correct them. He made a lot of sense to us. So on July 10 we started keto. My wife has been on Weight Watchers, Sugar Busters, and numerous other weight loss programs over the years. This keto diet seems sustainable and wasn't hard after the first week. So far I have lost 22 lbs and my wife has lost 20 lbs. My blood pressure has dropped so much that I have had to quit taking one of my blood pressure medicines ( it had dropped to 96/52, now it is 115/66 ) Not bad for a couple pushing 70.
  19. The thing about all these studies is how much of the data is cherry picked and who was funding the study. How many times have these studies been reversed over the years? i will leave it at that so I don't have to get my soapbox out.
  20. I use https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/outdoor-gourmet-14-in-preseasoned-round-griddle#repChildCatid=27890 I cut the handles off and use this spider to hold it https://ceramicgrillstore.com/collections/vision-pro-classic-b-grill-accessories-by-ceramic-grill-store/products/large-spider-vision You can use the griddle without the spider ( before you cut the handles off ) but the deflector will sit higher and your grate will sit on top of the handles and rock a little bit. Being cast iron you don't have to worry about it breaking like stones will.
