  1. One of the three WaltonMarkets within 20 min of me dropped their Akorn Jrs. down to $35 today. I don't need one let alone two but....I couldn't help myself. Figure one or both will make a nice gift(s) if I ever befriend someone deserving. Maybe the wife will finally convince me to get that RV and I can slap one in it. There were still 2 on the shelf when I left the Champaign, IL store at 7PM tonight if anyone is local and looking.
  2. How did you for all of that onto two buns? Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  3. If you hold out even longer.,. I managed to grab the 28" on clearance from WallyWorld for $60 last spring. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  4. If you have Meijer stores in your area, you might check there too. My local store had them on clearance for $249 yesterday.
  5. A waffle, adorned with leftover pulled pork and an egg over easy. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  6. Mom and pop grocery store a few towns over had whole ribeyes on sale for $6.99/lb as a memorial day special. They would also cut to your specs for free. Tonight, I slapped two on the Vision @300F with some taters. Once they hit 120F I pulled them, three some aspergrass on the half moon cast iron griddle and cranked the temp to 450F. Once up to temp, I seared them for 1 min a side and played everything up. Wifey, son and I only made it through one of them. We will probably make fajitas with The other tomorrow. Good stuff. Glad to have a lot more of them in the freezer. Gotta keep practicing, ya know.. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  7. You could just piece it back together and wrap it in foil again. I used a broken pizza stone as a deflector for over a year until I picked up the vision lava stones on clearance. Worked fine for me. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  8. You are following the same path I followed. I love my ceramic because it will last me forever but I think my akorn was more efficient. Unfortunately the akorn was rusting out after 2 years even with a cover. The vision classic B does hold temp better in my experience. Enjoy! Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  9. Purchased the TipTopTemp last week. After spending $8 on a 6" to 5" duct reducer and $6 on 10' of self-sealing silicone tape it is air tight on my Vision Classic B and I'm smoking my first overnight brisket. Been holding a constant grate temp of 247 F for 2 hrs now. So far so good. Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk

  11. Great looking cook. Greater looking tables. Do you have a thread about them you could direct me to? Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
  12. 280. You are a year off. My 2acres are in the middle of soybeans this year. Next year I will be back amongst the corn, which provides better protection from the wind
  13. Agreed but I am not sure I will fit under it with my Vision and gas burner. I definitely would not set this up in an open yard and expect to find it where I left it after a slight breeze. Luckily my patio is protected on 3 sides by the house (south- the direction from which the strongest winds come), 8' Privacy fence /divider (west & east- both within 10' of the grills) and my detached garage blocks most of the wind from the East on the rare occasion that is is blowing from that direction. But, just in case, any recommendations for anchoring it to a brick patio?
  14. I have not set it up yet but I certainly hope so. If you look at the image, it appears that there is a greater distance between the canopy and the cross support in the front than there is in the back. Since the caonopy overhang appears to be the same width along the front, sides, and back, I believe that the canopy does slope to the back. If that is not the case when I set it up, I'll be sure to mention it.
  15. Found these on clearance at the local Wally World. Availability may vary (there were 4 on clearance at the store I went to yesterday). For those of us in the U.S. the dimensions equate to 7' W x 5' D x 7' H. Not sure how well they will hold up but at only $33.00 I thought it was worth a shot. I normally keep a cover on my grill but after a cook I often go to bed before it is cool enough to put the cover back on. I bought this to provide a bit of added protection from the elements those evenings. I will try to set it up this weekend and if anyone is interested, I'll post first impressions afterwards.
  16. The hens look delicious. And as a FYI Rattlesnakes give birth to live young. So no need to worry about the egg contents.
