How does that bread taste? It certainly looks delicious! 

It was great, GF loved it. Simple recipe, kind of a country or rustic texture. Uses AP, no special ingredients. I made a pizza last week and baked another loaf, this time round.

A little overdue, but my Vision B is over a year old. No issues, been great. Kamado are great at grilling, baking, smoking. I cooked a lot of stuff just because I could. That does not mean there are not better tools, methods. I’ve been smoking more lately on the pellet grill. I bought a kJ soapstone, and tested it on smash burgers on the GF’s Gas grill.76326843-7C2E-47CF-9EC9-B92D68F6D695.jpeg.fdc6b04fc3a987b6ea5f0f61b57f7ac4.jpeg8

Got thermpro for Christmas. Used it on the asmoke, grate and food probe dead nuts  with the onboard Asmoke probes. Used on the vision today, nice to monitor grill temp from inside on start up.

Also got kJ grill expander. Box shows it with the grate on the fire bowl. I had the grate on the felt line. It fit fine. Test run.

Bbqube wi-fi  + Vision B

 

I don’t know if I needed a temp control, but I bought one. I admit , I never used one and don’t know much about them..

First cook, set up for reverse sear steak. Lit the center of the lump with the JJGeorge and closed the lid, started the Qube at 225. About an hour later it was at 225. I it let run for about 30 more minutes, it went up to about 230. Started the steak and let it go to about 110, the grill continued to climb, but not to bad. Opened it up and moved the steak over the coals and seared it. 

 

Today was the low and slow, lit the coals in two spots, turned on the qube and set for 225.. After about 45 minutes it hit 225..I put on a rack of baby backs and shut the lid. The top vent was adjusted to #1, about an 1/8 of an inch (same as first cook). They recommend less than a quarter inch. Came back to about 221 and stayed there for about 15 minutes, at which point I ran some errands. An hour and half later the grill was at 275. 

 

I called customer service and talked to a CSR, close the vent more or open more ? No definitive answer, so I closed it a little more. I also had some questions about the wi-if and possible Bluetooth. Couldn’t   answer, the technician was not in. I’ll just have to experiment I guess..Meanwhile the grill was riding along at a steady 280.

 

Don’t get the impression I am not satisfied. It’s to early for me make a call, I need more experience. Maybe some of you with bbqube or  temp control devices in general can give me some pointers…. In the meantime I can probably control the grill better manually.. Maybe I don’t need a temp control device ..

I run a Bellows on my Classic B and it works like a charm. It holds within 10-15 degrees either side of the target and mostly the larger variations pop up as a result of opening the lid.  It’ll work to catch up quickly OLG and sometimes over shoot. But they updated the firmware and it’s less now a days.

 

top vent is likely your issue from my experience.  Less is more. I set to the smallest sliver opening in the top to ensure the fan is doing the work versus the natural air flow.  Then if you’re struggling to get to a temp then just open a small amount at a time. I usually give it 10 mins to adjust and it gets there.

Third time is a charm. Set the vent with a round wooden toothpick as a gauge. Ran four hours at 225, bumped it up to 250 and holding that also.

      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.
