    top vent red knob

    It is a safety feature for holding the top vent open when a propane insert is used , thus allowing some gas to escape

    BJ Firebox Wobble

    Can't recall but I think the firebox comes with 3 strips of gasket material on the bottom to help reduce any wobble.

    Fire starter

    At home I use a MAPP torch exclusively , but with just a propane bottle not mixed gas cheaper , easy for lighting multiple places or just one . Not sure how many times I sparked up the Kamado with 1 bottle but with a I would say it is quite cheap and extremely efficient. The KJ fire starters work great as well , but only use these when I take JR to the beach , camping etc... , even cut them in half cheap me !

    Best height for cooking?

    A stove top is typically 36" high so just use that as a guide for your height that you like , inch or higher or lower

    Guesstimate would be about 20" diameter from the bottom at 13" in height , should fit no problems

    Second Hand DEMO Primo

    Ya I get it , go with what got , just thought I throw it out there not sure what the cost of aluminum would be compared to ceramic but with the aluminum or steel for that matter it won't break

    Second Hand DEMO Primo

    Not only what this ^ but it will definitely burn and you and your Kamado will not like the toxic fumes it gives off Also if this me I would go with aluminum lighter and won't rust
  10. Been a long time since I ever checked after shutting down but if I remember correctly after I cooked and opened the dome after a couple of hours I have had a small amount of hot coals still burning This normal , I will probably get some hate for this but I see a lot of people on here so concerned on here about seal and dollar tests and for the most part to me is just wasted energy , unless it is some huge leaking air flow there is no need to worry about it and just learn your vent settings for you cooker no water pan needed that the beauty of having a Kamado

    Replacement Chimney Top

    Hey Dylan welcome to the forum , I think it might be best to contact Vision customer service and see if they would be able to hook you up with what you need.

    Kamado Transporter

    If it was me and wanting to transport on a regular basis I would go the Big Steel Keg route with the hitch attachment.
