  1. Kiln shelves work well: https://www.euclids.com/index.php?cat_id=152
  2. You might find something here: https://www.euclids.com/index.php?cat_id=152 I don't care for the Vision lava stone as its porous surface collects fat drippings, it also breaks easily.
  3. I would watch the videos on the Vision web site for tips on starting out. The Kamado Joe site has a lot of good recipe videos.
  4. No need, they will come out great without.
  5. I have a Vision Classic B with a Kick Ash basket, and use an electric starter all the time. Just work it down into the charcoal and turn it on. You can determine where the fire starts by your placement of the electric starter. For example, if I'm doing a two zone cook I'll put the starter down in the charcoal on the direct side of the basket, leaving the charcoal under the half moon diverter unlit. I like the electric starter because it's probably the most inexpensive way to start your coals, and very easy. Just be sure you have a safe place to put it when you pull it out.
  6. I ate chopped pork at a BBQ place in NC last night and it was incredibly bland, no smoke taste at all. Forces you to douse it with tons of sauce. Hush puppies were good though. But I'm like most here, when I eat out (which is seldom) I order entrees I don't cook at home myself. I've yet to eat BBQ, steak, pizza etc. out that's better than what I can cook myself. Well, very seldom anyway.
  7. Do you smoke the twice baked potatoes during the initial baking of the potatoes, or on the second reheat after you've added all the ingredients?
  8. @lunchman so how did you do the stuffing? Seems like stove top would probably work. Did you cook the sausage first? Thanks! Cool cook.
  9. BGE is a fine product, if you think the features are a better fit for your cooking go for it!
  10. Thanks guys. I just ordered the one off Amazon Jose recommended. It can't come soon enough, in just the few days since my original post my OEM Vision grill cover has disintegrated even more, it's really hit its expiration date.
  11. Your post makes me think I need to pull out my Adam Perry Lang cookbook and start using it!
  12. You've probably made a choice already, but as a vision owner I would recommend the Kamado Joe. The main difference being the divide and conquer racks, plus the included diverters. By the time you add that to the Vision you will be spending more money than you would have spent on the Joe.
  13. Needless to say those look really good. What did you season them with? And exactly how tasty were they?
  14. Need a new grill cover for my Vision Classic B. I'm inclined just to buy it from Vision since I thought the original was pretty high quality, but was wondering if anyone has had good luck with any after market grill covers? If so, did you like it better than the original? Thanks!
  15. If you're still looking check out this page with kiln shelves, an inexpensive way to go. I have one of these, and love it. A little more cash, but very flexible.
