Nice fix CaptnCook, I just did this minus the knobs, thank you.

Yeah, I did the same thing. I complained about the coal burning out and sent them a picture of my fix to no avail. I had left over gasket from a previous build so it wasn't a big deal.

I put felt around the ash tray and control knobs.    Got it it from amazon for 20$~ cut it into thin strips and it curved to match the profile of the knobs.   Worked great !

@doodie110 - Home Depot has all kinds of trucks at their disposal.  Let them pick up the bad Vision.  Let Vision and Home Depot work tis deal out.  Let both know that you're not going to jump thru hoo

"We suggest you cooking on grill 5-6 times before attempting to smoke to get creosote build up and flavor in the grill. Once you have done so, then you can try smoking at low temperatures.

@doodie110 , not to complicate things for you, but i did notice with my Vision S, that i was able to get an even better seal by;

- closing the lid

- loosening the acorn nuts on the shock cap (front-centre behind handle)

- loosening the acorn nuts on the spring shock itself

- letting them find their sweet spot, and tightening them snugly again.

- you may also want to play around with washers +/- on these same parts to get a really nice alignment too

I was having a really hard time getting a good seal on my S series until I followed your advice. Now I can control temperatures much more predictable and have done a low & slow moose roast that cooked for almost 4 hrs
