  1. So I need to tell a little story, about a year ago I purcahsed a bunch of equipment from BBQ lsand in Tempe AZ. One of the items purchased was my built in Louisiana Estate 860 BI, a cooler, storage doors and other items. The Bad, The Lousiana Estate 860 BI gave me problems from almost the beginning, from a fault temp probe, defective digital board to another replacement temp probe and countless fires from the grill I had issues with the pellet smoker. I could not tell you how many meals were ruined. Next time I need a pellet smoker I will go straight to Greem Mt. Grills. The Good. Everyone at BBQ Island and their 3 locations. They helped me all of the way with the issues and was able to help me get a replacement grill when the grill just would not work right. Steve Averett specifically was awesome and I could not ask for more. They have a customer for life not because of the products they sell but because of the employees they have there. I just thought I would share in case anyone in the Phoenix AZ market needs a grill or grill accessories in the future.
  2. I had my first cook using my Anova Precision and Grillgrates to cook Costco ribeyes on my Vision Kamado. I have to say they were the best Ribeyes I have ever had. They were not kidding how even the cook was through the entire ribeye and the grill marks were outstanding. Can't wait for my next cook.
  3. I know, I know this is the Kamado site but I do have some questions. Still got my favorite my Vision B kamado I have had for 6+ years but recently added a Louisiana Estate pellet smoker to my outdoor cooking. Been using both quite a bit. The Lousiana has been great for set and forget cooks but it is clear that the Kamado provides far more smoke flavor to my food. I like to slow cook my steaks on the pellet and than reverse seer on the Vision as well as other cooks. I was wondering if anyone has a similar set up and has some ideas and thoughts about using both for the same meals.
  4. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
  5. I just picked up another bag of this from my Costco here in Phoenix. I use this all the time, never got a bad bag and yes it will come with some "logs" but as another mentioned I will use one of those when doing a long cook. For the size and price you can't go wrong.
  6. I am searching the internet to attend a BBQ cooking school and can't seem to find anything for what I am looking for. Everything I see is either a 1 day or a 2+ day classes. I am really looking to do a 4-5 day hands on class. Does anyone know of one or having attending one that you would recommend?
  7. SCTDG35 explain to me how the heat gun works? I assume it is just very hot air coming out of so then how does it light the lump?
  8. I just saw the ET732 on sale at Amazon for $50.00. http://www.amazon.com/Maverick-Et-732-Remote-Smoker-Thermometer/dp/B004IMA718/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1391002770&sr=8-1&keywords=maverick+et+732
  9. My wonderful wife got me a Himalayan salt block for Christmas. Has anyone used one on their Kamado? I have heard that using them on the Kamado can damage them due to all of the smoke and how porous the blocks are. is that true? Does anyone have a great recipe to cook on one of them?
  10. Picked up a 7.8 lb packer from Costco. Trimmed and dry rubbed last night. Started cooking at 6 am and holding at 240. Looking forward to a great dinner tonight. Galaxy SIII
  11. John, just want to say thanks for sharing this recipe. Cooked 6 lb of salmon last night for a dinner party and nobody wanted to touch the Pork because the salmon was so good. This was the best salmon dish I ever made. One thing different I did though was cook the salmon on cedar planks.
  12. Thanks for all of your feedback guys. Still not sure which way I am going to go yet. John, there is a liquidator here in Phoenix that is selling the Lil Tex Elite for $380.00 so I may be looking at that one real soon.
  13. So I have had my Vision since March and I love it. I have about $500.00 to spend for another one now and looking at simply an electric smoker. Looking at the following Traeger - Masterbuilt and Cookshack as potential buys. Does anyone have one of these smokers and Pro's and Con's of the units? I always appreciate the feedback I get from the site.
  14. I am looking to purchase a 1/2 plate for my Vision. Any suggestions on which one to buy?
  15. Thanks for all of your responses. I thought the other posts and was wondering about the rest of you. I was hoping the Ceramic Chef had a comment as he seems to always be a great resource. Not sure what I will do as i think the ones that I would really wants get up their in price.
