  1. Don't have a lot of room. Just work with what I have.
  2. My stand on the B was bending at the casters. Vision was out of the chrome stand and asked if I would take a different painted stand. They sent me the stand that looks like the one on the pro series. This was done under the warranty. I bought the 5' casters from Grizzly and it works great. If you look at the chrome stand, the casters are set with the weight pushing out. I think it is a poor design because the metal is too thin. On the pro stand , the weight is pushing more vertically. I believe this is a better design than the chrome one. Just my 2 cents.
  3. Well you could always use a 14" griddle and if you don't cut the handles off it will set on top of the fire bowl. This is what I use as a deflector. https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/outdoor-gourmet-14-in-preseasoned-round-griddle#repChildCatid=27890
  4. Fire bricks on top rack, terra cotta feet ( for pots turned sideways 1 1/2" thick ) BGE pizza stone.
  5. If they don't already have a deflector setup in it there would be no way to suspend the stone other than bringing a spider or a woo ring with you. It can work by putting the stones on the bottom grate and the meat on the top grate.

    Grate rack

    I have looked for well over a year and have never seen any for the Vision.
  7. You could always keep it and wait until college football started and wear it to a Arkansas Razorback game.
  8. It should smooth out over a few cooks with the grease build up.
  9. 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.
  10. I don't know, mine don't even touch the ceramic top. It has not been a problem.
  11. Ceramic Grill Store is your friend https://ceramicgrillstore.com/collections/pit-boss-24-kamado-grill-costco
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. If the firebox was red and the temp only showed 370, it sounds like you temp gauge is wonkers.
  18. I have no issues with the bark but I guess that's just me.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. Exactly. It holds the top vent wide open and you regulate the temps with the propane burner like on a gas stove.
