  1. I tried my Thermoworks Billows on my B series today. I did some back ribs. Weather here today was terrible - very rainy. The cook turned out really well - Billows was easy to use with the mounting plates. I had to drill two holes into my bottom vent grate to allow for the spring to clamp correctly. I also had to cut the mounting plate slightly to fit the groove of the bottom vent. Top vent was open very little as instructed and didn't touch for the whole cook. It did keep the temp very steady - although still saw spikes when opening and closing the lid. Which I only did 3 times - ribs on, wrap and back on to sauce. Thermoworks said it's supposed to account for lid opening in its most recent firmware release, but can still see a bit of over compensation by Signals/Billows. I have had Signals since early last year, not sure I would invest in the Signals just to get Billows. That said, Signals is awesome on its own. I can generally regulate nearly as well through usually methods. I believe the value will be in the over night cooks and reduced stress about not having to worry about drops or spikes. 225 degrees, Jealous Devil Charcoal, Sugar Maple for the smoke. 3-2-.5 timing on the ribs.
  2. Hello Guru's I have just joined this board and hope there is someone that can help me. I am using a Vision Classic B from Sam's and I love it; it has exceeded my expectations for food quality. I am, however, having some trouble keeping the temperature stable during long overnight cooks. The temperature rising is not such a problem as it rises temporarily and then drifts back down. It also does not go that high as I have the intake well limited. The trouble is when the temp falls and does not recover. I can set it for 250 and it holds for a few hours, then it begins to drop. I typically adjust the intake and chimney, open the lid for a few minutes, then the temp rises and appears stable for an hour or so then begins to drop again. I have researched several things and tried to correct some of my mistakes. 1. Ash build up - I clean before every cook now. 2. Intake and chimney settings - I set the intake for a low temp cook and then open just a little but more to ensure enough air flow for combustion. I then control the temp with the chimney vent, it is pretty much closed at that point. 3. Charcoal grate - I removed the charcoal grate and replaced it with a Kick Ash Basket to ensure there was nothing to impede the air flow. 4. Crept up to temperature - Wanted to make sure too many coals were not lit, and they start smoldering. 5. Overshot temperature - Overshot the temperature by 50 deg and let it settle down to the correct temperature. 6. Checked for leaks - It appears that there are no leaks. The gasket seems tight and no smoke is escaping from it. I have not out ruled that this grill may not be capable of stable temperature for that long. I would appreciate any insight anyone would have. I have begun to cook my butts and brisket hot and fast to make sure they are done before bedtime. The results are good, but I would prefer the overnight cooks. Thanks for your help.
  3. Hello All, My name is Clayton and I found this forum in an attempt to get better control of my vision grill. I have cooked on several grill types, Kenmore gas, Weber kettles, Brinkman bullet and I purchased a Vision Classic B kamado from Sam's last summer. The Vision has has allowed me to significantly improve my cooks; the smoke flavor, the juiciness are off the scale and I my family loves it. This along with the Thermoworks thermometers has been great. I enjoy cooking poultry, ribs, pork butt, brisket & steaks. The reason I am here is that I have not been able to do a good overnight smoke at low temperatures without maintenance. I will discuss this in another post since this area is for introductions. I look forward to exchanging ideas.
  4. I've been struggling getting to higher temperatures and I think my lower vent was installed backward. When it is open the holes are blocked on the backside so I don't think there is enough air getting through. Guess I assumed air should have a free path? And what do the knobs on the bottom do anyway?
