Multi tasking with a pork shoulder.


When I cook a shoulder, I usually pack the left overs in quart ziplock bags, one pound per bag and freeze them. I had not gotten around to a shoulder on the kamado, as I had a couple pounds rumbling around in the freezer.

But then the October challenge came up. 1) Shoulder needed for the challenge, 2) opportunity to cook a shoulder on the kamado 3) experimented with the fire. 

I usually lay down some big block, and pour on a lit chimney of left over /fresh lump. Gets hot fast. This time I put down a couple monster chunks of KJBB, and dumped the unlit chimney of rubble on top, and buried one of these guys just under the top of the pile and lit it up..




After the fire got going, I put the lava rock and drip pan on the Vision hanger, grate on the low position, (fire bowl). After about a half hour, with a little fiddling, the dome thermometer and the oven thermometer on the grill were at 225. They stayed there for the entire cook, did not have to make further adjustments.  Lots of lump and a couple big chunks of hickory, small fire

      Morning! 4:51 and it's almost time to get the bird in some heat. Posting as a follow along with a few questions. Outside temps are going to be below 20°F. Is there any danger to my grill with those temps? Vision you watching this? Lol

      $499 on the website seemed like a good price. In store had an additional "end of season" discount of $100. My Sam's had 7 left. St. Paul, MN area.

      Buddy has an older Cadet or p series or that looks to be that small size. He said that with his lid open his od is 12.25'' and id is 10.75'' with a firebox measuring 9.75'' od and id of 8 3/8''. He is considering getting the vision branded stone and cutting it to size. I was wondering if there may be a better option for him. He also is considering cutting one from a soapstone blank  at a thickness of 1 1/4''. Any help is appreciated. I'm sending him the link to the thread in hopes that he'll join.

      Hi gang! Found a new Series C for private sale. Current owners think it's worth $400.00? Currently sour I missed a high quality used one for $225.00. Apparently without the warranty people let them go for a very fair price. Thoughts from the community? Oh, here is a pic of the one I missed out on. Please don't rub it in.

      Anyone ever try this? Will it fit my vision pro series c?  These things are beautiful in stand alone version, however I'm not really concerned about the aesthetics but more about functionality. The one for the Weber kettle  looks like it does a nice job. Thanks in advance for any information.
