Hi Guys & Gals,
Excited to be a official member of the forum and keep up with all the good advice. Had a Primo grill about 15 years ago (got it right from the factory!) but never used it much. Moved over to some Weber gas and kettle grills-which are excellent and added a stick smoker last year.
While I love the stick smoker-It is a love/hate relationship, since it requires so much attention. My electric smoker was set and forget, where the stick smoker constantly needs adjusting. My neighbors all have BGE's and I love the simplicity of the Kamado grills.
A few weeks ago I was in Sam's Club walking the aisles for some exercise (I'm not even a member but was travelling in Mobile and it was close to my hotel) and saw their Vision B grill on sale. Unfortunately they were out of stock but it get me to start checking out some Sam's Club's and I even called their 800 number to see if any were around. Unfortunately they were sold out everywhere.
I'm located in the back yard of BGE, Kamado Joe (my daughter went to high school with owners son), Primo and a company called Grill Dome. I checked out Grill Dome and really liked their grills but just wasn't ready to pull the trigger and add another grill to my small collection!
Then my local Home Depot had their Kamado Joe's marked down from around $1200 to $980-still to pricey for me compared to a Vision on Sam's Club website at $499. A few weeks went by and they marked them down again to $840 and got the manager to knock another $40 off and grabbed one already assembled (I would much prefer to assemble it myself but this made life easy).
So long introduction but enjoyed a few nice Ribeye's on the Joe last night and looking forward to venturing out!
