So I had been searching for a great electric smoker I could use in the winter to keep from going outside and freezing my stuff off. Looked into treggers, bradleys, and the chepo masterbuilts. Thought about turining my uds into a gas smoker that would be capable of holding a steady temp in the winter as well. All the electric smokers looked good but i just wasnt feeling the electric part of it. Burners seemed to quit functioning on the cheap ones, some were saying the quality of treggers had gone down hill. 500 plus for a decent electric and all i could do was throw pellets in it and get what ever it would cook. I feel im to die hard of a bbq'er to go electric and take my hands completely off of it. Then I found the Vision pro s with the gas insert. Bam problem solved. Unfortunately there were'nt many reviews on this grill and no reviews on the gas insert. So here we go. Unboxing the grill Packaging was unbelieveable. Came on a semi in about 3 days. This is the gas insert. Very high quality The lava stone and hanger came with the burner All assembled getting ready to run a little gas through it. The gas burner has Low, Med and High settings. I was only interested at seeing how low it would go so thats what I had it set for. It heated up to 250ish and stayed there pretty consistently for a half hr before I killed it and went in for the night. I ran a quick charcoal fire through it on friday. Picked up a small loin and figured I would give it shot. I started a fire the way all the kamado cookers suggested. I dumped the lump in and started the center coals with a torch. I let it basically barely start to glow then i closed the lid and opened the vents wide open untill it reached about 200. Then I cracked them open ever so slightly and got up to about 250 and it held steady at that temp untill the meat was done. That being my test run I decided to pick up a couple racks of ribs for sunday and give it an official run for its money.
