  1. Growing Vision Family

    I've only used the kamado twice. Both times I used the starter port to light it. It's pretty straightforward. I can't say that's it's better than the way you do it, but it's there so I'll use it. I do like it though. I did notice a little smoke coming from that port, but only when I close both the top & bottom vents. The same thing happens when I close the vents on my other Visions. It didn't seem to hurt anything because I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when I went to fire it up & saw how much lump I had left over from Monday. Hopefully this weekend I can start a cook early enough to see how long smoke comes out of that port once the bottom & top vents are closed. It's been pretty hard to see at night. The 2 on the left are the same size. The one on the right is the smaller Classic M.

  3. Growing Vision Family

    I remember way back in January of last year after I purchased my Vision M from Sam's on a complete impulse buy. I came home & searched Google & found this forum. I had never heard of Vision or had I had any experience using a kamado. What struck me as odd around this forum was the common use of the word "trifecta". I couldn't understand why folks would need 3 kamado's. Fast forward to July 2016 and my trifecta has been formed like Voltron. Vision Signature Series Plaza is now a member of our loving family.

    That is a very nice find and a great deal.Thanks! I really like it. I see a lot more frying on the kamado in my future. Last nights fried chicken marinated in buttermilk, chili paste, lemongrass & garlic. https://vimeo.com/166392617

    Great deal! I'd probably knock the "rubber" off the lid handle if you plan on using it inside the Kamado. Probably heat tolerant but wouldn't risk it burning and getting off flavors inside the Kamado That's exactly what I did this afternoon, and it was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. Franco, I'll be sure to snap some pics of the cook and let you know how it turns out.

    Very nice. Once I go through the bags of wood chunks I currently have, I'm going to order myself some better wood chunks. I strolled into a Marshall's yesterday looking for some pots & I came across this. It was on clearance for $20. The price on the box says retail is $295, but I don't believe that for one second. Either way, I think it's a sweet deal for $20. I've got some chicken thighs marinating in buttermilk & lemongrass right now, so I'll try it out tonight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I really wanted some jalapeño corn bread this weekend so I whipped one up. Best corn bread I ever made. Paired it with some pan fried red snapper & creamed kale. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks. I never go to that site. I'll slide over there & see what I can find.
  9. building a table....ish

    Kudos! You did all that in one day? I've been working on one since November and it's no where near completed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Where Do I Go From Here? (Table Build)

    Thanks. My plan was to hire a mobile guy to cut the holes out for me. I showed the tables to my neighbor yesterday and he immediately said I could cut the holes out with a jigsaw myself. That had never crossed my mind, and honestly I wish it hadn't. I'll still get a few estimates from some folks to see if I can get some good prices.
  11. I started building a table for my Vision Classic B & Classic M way back in November. I was actually planning on building 2 tables, 1 for each grill that formed a L shape. That didn't go so well. 6 months later and I only had one frame built and it's not even complete. I've come to realize that I stink at working on wood. Some of you folks make it look so easy. So after deciding to scrap my wood working adventure I decided to try and find myself a couple stainless steel prep tables. One good thing about living in a big city is you can find darn near anything imaginable. This one is 60x30x40. My initial thought was to put the bigger Classic M on the left side of this table. There's almost 16 inches b/w the top of the counter & top of the shelf underneath. I think (hope) that I can take some wood from my table build and drill underneath the shelf to reinforce it. This table is 48x30, I'm not sure of the height of this one. It's brand new in the box so I'll have to see later. I don't think it's a big deal though. This one was purchased to house the Classic M. This one is tougher because the shelf on this one is lower so I don't have anything for the grill to rest on. I've seen some folks who have actually taken their casters off the stand and placed the entire grill & stand inside their table build. I'm open to suggestions on what I should do. I was thinking about just using one table, but I don't think that will leave me with much prep space. I could be wrong though.

    Goodness gracious. That is awesome. I can't even build a table! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes. The M was my intro into Kamado's last January. Will the Divide and Conquer fit into the M? I like my M but having no access to the firebox once the diffuser stone is in place (without trying to get a rusted bracket with a heavy and dangerously hot stone out) is a drawback. It is downright irritating when you want to do a reverse sear or grill up some veg at the end of a smoke. This seems like a great solution at a reasonable price if it fits. The divide & conquer will not fit the M. It will only fit the Classic B. I've done quite a few reverse sears on the M the way you described w/ no problem, pretty quick too. Just as long as you have a good set of gloves. I've seen some firebox dividers & things like that on Amazon but it don't remember if they fit the M. I never got anything because I grabbed a Classic B and grabbed a Divide & Conquer. I get what you mean about your bracket though. When I first my B I tried to adjust my bracket to fit the fire bowl. The screws were completely rusted tight. I had to go buy the Kamado Joe X Rack. That's what made me think about getting the Divide & Conquer.

    I have no idea, but I thought it was rather cool.

    Emptying out my 3rd & final bag this morning. I just came across this big piece. I'm been impressed w/ all 3 bags. Hopefully I can still find some at this price. Maybe I need to separate my pieces more often. The very next piece I pulled out looked like this.
