  1. Looking for opinions.... Vision B, lava stone with hanger Reading posts here and looking at pictures of your rigs, I have a question. On line at different stores and amazon, I see a lot of spiders that will pretty much just replace the cross bars that hang the lava rock. There are also many variations that will raise the main grate to the felt line. Not considering all the options that raise the grate higher in the dome and slide in and out for various configurations of stones, half stones and additional grates for more levels of cooking and additional volume, how much does raising the main grate from the OEM position to the felt like make? Pros? Cons? Improved temp and heat distribution? I realize it may be easier to access, Is that about it?
  2. Just wondering if anyone has ever used Kamado Joe replacement parts on the Vision Classic B?? More specifically I am looking at changing the draft door on the bottom, mine does not seal that well. Thanks in advance
  3. Kamado delivered Saturday, cured it Sunday.... now it begins..... cooking a seven bone Prime Rib for Christmas want to do a couple of test runs this week. Heat deflector will be here tomorrow. Any suggestions?
  4. Wanted to get y'all's thoughts... I have a Vision M Series - Modified - The Sam's Combo unit, that has the gas grill/searing unit on one side, Kamado on the other...it is the Vision M Series, but it is a slightly modified version, so std M series accessories are said to not fit. Ticks me off, but I'm a Marine...I adapt and overcome...Hahaha I have .050" stainless steel readily available at no cost, and an ornamental metal fab shop that shears/punches/etc things for me at a decent price. I'm thinking of having the pieces in the images made for me - the size SS plates I have available are 10" x 34ish"...I am thinking of having the shop shear some 1" wide pieces and break press them into the shapes I need, then weld them dead center to create 2 different height plate holders...then also having them shear and weld 2 pieces together to make a deflector like shown... Thoughts? Y'all have a lot more experience with all of this than I do... Also, I saw somewhere, might have been here, that someone took their charcoal grate out and used a SS basket like the one in the pic (sans handle, it comes detached and will go in the junk drawer so my wife can ask me eleventy million times why I kept it) for ease in cleanup etc...I already have one of the baskets and it fits pretty nice, less than an inch from the ceramic to the basket all the way around...Or would it better to just keep the cast iron piece in there? This seems like it would allow a lot better airflow...the one issue I have with the Kamado part of this set-up, is that the bottom air vent is "within" the table, so air movement is minimal...(see image)...is this a normal airflow deal with Kamado tables? Thanks, all!! M
  5. Greetings Gurus... I'm putting this post as a pinned post in the Gadgets & Accessories section. This is a 'living' post and I'll be adding items to it as time goes by. This is *MY* definitive list of THE REALLY RIGHT STUFF when it comes to BBQ accessories. Items on this list are things that I own and have tested rather extensively. Keep in mind that this list of STUFF is NOT necessarily a MUST-HAVE list. It's just MY recommendations of what you SHOULD get if you decide to purchase the type of item in question. Instant Read Thermometer EVERY backyard barbecue and grilling enthusiast should own an instant read thermometer. These allow you to produce consistent results without having to rely on look-and-feel tactics that don't always work. You can spend anywhere between $10 and over $100 on instant read thermometers. The speed at which they give you an accurate reading is often a big factor in the cost. Speed is rather important though, especially when you don't want to keep the lid on your grill open very long. My Recommendation: Thermoworks Thermopop Price: $24 introductory price / $29 regular price Several aspects of this instant read thermometer make it my TOP choice even in comparison with much more expensive models. This thermometer gives you an accurate reading in 5-6 seconds. The only advantage you get with the $94 Thermapen from the same company is a 2-3 second read time. I have used both extensively and the Thermopop is perfectly adequate for all barbecue and grilling applications. It's also splash-proof, has a rotating display, the LCD orientation rotates for ease of use in any direction or left handed, and the display is also back-lit. You can't go wrong with this thermometer! Meat / Pit Probes Most of us enjoy being able to monitor the internal temperature of our meat during the cook without having to use an instant read thermometer or open the grill to take the reading. I'm a fan of the units that will read pit and meat temperature simultaneously and I have two of these that are both fantastic products. My Recommendation: Maverick Redi-Chek ET-85 Two-In-One Price: $20.99 on Amazon (price tends to fluctuate a little) This is a very basic yet very functional two-probe thermometer on a single probe. The narrow part of the probe is inserted into the meat and the thicker part at the top is a separate thermometer that reads your pit temperature. Both probes can have high temp alarms set as you see fit. I have been using one of these regularly for over two years with no failures of any kind. For the price and usability, you can't go wrong with this product. The only possible drawbacks this unit has are that the probe cable is only about 36" long and the thickness of the probe at the big end makes it difficult or impossible to run it through a small hole on some types of grills. This isn't an issue in Kamado cooking though. Alternate Recommendation: Thermoworks TW8060 Two-Channel Thermocouple with Alarm Price: Kits starting at $129.00 This unit is a BEAST. It will serve any application you want. You have multiple options with various probes and the probes are well constructed and will last a long time. I have been using this model for quite a while now as well and have zero complaints about it. If I could come up with one complaint, it would be that the meat probe is slightly longer than it needs to be. As for durability, I score this unit with top ratings. It DOES cost significantly more than the other units I have used in the past, but I don't find myself dealing with failed probes on the TW8060. If you want something nicer than the Maverick ET-85 shown above, buy this! Timers / Alarms I run timers constantly on things that I'm cooking. Not so much to know when it's ready, but to know how long it has been cooking. I have three different timers and I stand by each one of them in terms of usability and durability. Recommendation: Thermoworks Extra Big & Loud Timer Price: $29.00 When it comes to timers, I have one major requirement when it comes to ease of use. I want to be able to punch in a time rather than scrolling to set my hours, minutes, and seconds. This requires a 10-digit keypad on the timer. This model by Thermoworks is FANTASTIC! It's very easy to use and just like it says, the timer is loud. The volume is also adjustable. I have been using this timer on all my cooks for several months now and have yet to replace the 9v battery. I love the big display. I can see it from a distance with no problem. This timer is also IP65 splash/water resistant. If I could only have one timer, this would be the one. Recommendation: Thermoworks TimeStick Price: $19.00 Introductory Price / $25.00 Regular Price This small timer meets my requirements of being able to punch in the times I want. It also works in countdown/count up modes. It's also splash resistant and comes with a lanyard so you can hang it around your neck and carry it with you. Having it with you is convenient if you don't want to visit your grill to see how much time is left or how long you have been going. Strongly recommended! Recommendation: Oxo Triple Timer Price: $19.99 Here's another timer that I use regularly. This one also meets my requirements of countdown/count up and keypad time entry. This one allows me to have three separate timers running at the same time, which is handy when I have several things going on at once. This timer is also useful when you want to cook several different things that need to go for different times. You can start the longest one first and easily have three different things ready at the same time.... great tool!
  6. We make chimney caps for the Big Green Egg, Primo and Kamado Joe grills. Any ideas on why we're selling twice as many KJ sizes vs. the BGE/Primo size? It's all cool of course. It's just a little confounding from an inventory perspective. Any ideas? Thank you - Jack
  7. Hi Gurus! I was at Sam's Club this morning and saw the following: I'm not familiar with what the various options cost, but just thought some of you good Vision owners might be interested. Have a great weekend!
