Good Morning Everyone, I'm looking for some insight to a very intriguing idea that was posted on this board by CeramicChef (he has praised the originator of the idea thoroughly on other posts). The "Smoker Pot" idea revolves around getting a small cast iron dutch oven (CC's post used a 2qt. Lodge DO) and drilling a couple or few holes in the bottom. You place the DO on top of your hot lump as a cook begins, and BAM, instant (or nearly instant) thin blue smoke. Here's the old thread for more in depth review: Now, my issue is that I have a Vision Classic B grill (18.5" cooktop), while most of these other grillers are using Big Joes or other XL grills. It was mentioned in the thread that the 2qt DO may or may not fit in the Vision, due to not clearing under the heat diffuser. Another idea was to go down to a 1qt DO, but some posters were hesitant on the idea. I'm looking for some insight from anyone whether going smaller could work, or if they got this smoker pot idea to work on their Vision. The smallest 1qt DO I could find is here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004JEBCKA/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza?th=1&psc=1 (Measures just over 5" OD and 3.25" tall with lid). For comparison, the 2 qt Lodge with lid is almost 5" tall and 8" across according to amazon. Another wrench to throw into this, I'm looking to snag a Kick Ash Basket to replace the bottom grate in my Vision. Not sure if the KAB will elevate the lump and this pot even closer to the diffuser. Also, a pipe dream for now, is to purchase a Ceramic Grill Store Adjustable Rig. The Rig for the Vision has the spider welded on to the frame. So, between the KAB and the spider dropping down into the fire bowl, I have no idea how much vertical clearance I'll have between the two. I'm really shooting in the dark here for someone with these accessories or experience. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer!
