    Man that's amusing. Trolling a really old thread. On a forum where 99% of us would say kamado joe makes a perfectly good cooker. 

    I appreciate the diversion though, I'm prepping for a colonoscopy tonight.

    We are pitching in and getting my FIL an egg for Father's Day. My Bro-in-law found the Kamado Vision at Costco for $560 with nest, side tables, "platesetter" etc. It's loaded. That's $600 cheaper than a Large Egg and still a hell of a present. Any serious concerns about giving him the Kamado? Anyone use one that has doubts or concerns?

    Thanks

    (PS- I'm considering giving him my Large for $500 and getting an XL, but that is in negotiations at this time. Keep you posted)


    I know this is older, but I have to say, I'm so disappointed in most of the comments on this thread. I have a BGE and a Vision. The misinformation abounds. Both are great. READ THAT AGAIN. Both. I can cook food on both and you wouldn't be able to tell me which was which. Both are solid, no ceramic issues and the Vision I have had for years. I have seen issues with both. Even these forums have people asking advice about Egg issues, so I don't want to hear BS about how they don't. It comes with the territory. There are forums galore for all major brands, only difference I see, is that most of the other forums aren't filled with snobbery, but helpfu, friendly people. Lastly, the Vision price is a great one, one of the best deals in the business. Doesn't mean that one shouldn't buy an Egg if they want to. Choice is awesome, bad advice is not. Off my soapbox now.

    Wow. You're one pissed troll. Must be even more of a snooze fest on the Vision and KJ forums than usual...

    I was at meadow creek BBQ supply yesterday picking up stuff for the sauce and rub exchange.  I was checking out their awesome stick burners and thought that I would be the man if I pulled in towing one behind my jeep and did a whole hog.  I think digging a hole in their yard would buy me a spot on the do not invite back list from my aunt.

    You can rent those rigs too. 

    If if you want to crush brisket for 20 and are tempted by a stick burner, get a Karubacue. @The Cen-Tex Smoker has one and it's awesome for that purpose. 
    Tear up his aunt's property. Rent an offset smoker. Buy a Karubecue...

    You must think he's some kind of sucker like your other "friends"!
  • Re: Flame Boss controler battery pack.

    That's kind of a weird response from CS. Who actively redirects customers away from their company? Unless they actually own talentcell too.

    Hopefully it's an aberration, because they usually do a great job of keeping their customers happy. And now I know where to get a battery pack if I'm ever in  the market for one.

    The anchovy/olive/arugula pie gets my vote. 

    I've been thinking of taking a stab at sourdough pizza dough, so thanks for the link.
