  1. hello john421, can you tell me what material you use for the brackets? my local HD doesn't carry stainless steel, they have zinc plated, aluminum only. Same with Lowes. Thank you
  2. hi Taiguy, did you end up with the steel plate method? would love to see a pic and how much it ended up costing you ?
  3. Great to see some pics. how did you manage to keep the stone so clean when using both as a deflector and pizza stone ?
  4. You have a valid point. I've been reading various posts on this forum and it seems pizza stone cracks, terra cotta too. Then there's the aluminum pan method (again with foil), then there's the cast iron pans (option) and kiln shelves (option). If I may ask, which one do you use for your Akorn?
  5. some say not good to wrap in foil (fumes/chemicals) some say it's ok....what's the consensus on this ?
  6. did you have to wrap the cast iron pan with foil ? and have you done a smoke and it held the temp correctly? thanks
  7. Hi Colin954, did you wrap this in foil when your using as a diffuser? I plan to get the Woo spider and then put this on top for slow smoking. Also, do you know if there's any resin that would come out of this plate when heating for long cooks ? Thanks
  8. Hi TechGuy, I have a Vision B series. Just wanted to know if you've made the bracket as I plan to make one as well. Was the stainless hard to bend? Any pics or specs would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Hello all, noob here. Is there a difference with using a cast iron / pizza stone / SS pizza plate as a diffuser? Also, if using the stone or ss plate do you have to wrap it in aluminum foil ? thanks
  10. my pizza stone broke after I smoked my first brisket. would the cost to make this cheaper than purchasing CGS spider $25+shipping ?
  11. nice DIY! thanks for sharing!
  12. Thanks, I'll prob get the spider too. did you break off the handle of the cast iron ?
  13. I have the same issues. Can't get the temp to stablize to 250-275 only 325! so frustrating.
  14. i have a Vision B Classic and wondering if this would be good to use as a deflector for smoking. Can you tell me which spider did you end up buying (Woo Spider?) thanks in advance
  15. hi Tracksoup, I'm new here and have a Vision B Classic from Sam's. Can you show a pic on where you put the washers ? I can't seem to get a constant 250-275 on my grill. It keeps creeping to 325. I suspect it's the ash vent (bottom) and not the vent on top. This will be helpful for me. Thanks in advance.
  16. Hi Len440, yup, first thing I downloaded : ) thanks
  17. thank you , stay in touch!
  18. Hello all, from Central NJ. I've purchased my Vision Classic B from Sam's a few years back and have only been grilling regularly and now trying smoking first time. Made a brisket and it came out ok but I couldn't get a steady temp (creeping to 327 everytime; see pics). Stumbled on this forum and it's been a Godsent! Friendly community and tips. My backup is my Weber Gen II E-310 LP for quick grills. I figured that I want to start upping my craft and start smoking more and be the pitmaster of my neighborhood Looking forward to being a part of the community.
  19. Hello all, noob here on charcoal grilling/smoking. I also have an older Vision B classic from Sam's club a few years back (older version). I did a brisket first time and although it came out okay I had issues with getting to the 250-275 temp. The temp keeps creeping up to 325 even with both vents top/bottom closed. I contacted Vision and they said that it could be me felt seals that needs changing but the Vision is barely used so I don't think that is the issue. I also did the dollar bill and the dollar stays taught and doesn't come out when I pull while dome is closed. I suspect the window ve
