Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ponymoroni I Can Cook Like A Pro !
I have only used gas grills in the past and was never getting that great taste I have heard about, but never able to replicate. Right when I got it out of the box, I did just what the directions said. Got my temp locked in at 225 and put some wood chips in and let the Pork Shoulder sit for 7 hours. Then for the last hour i wrapped it in foil and let the meat sweat. I can only tell you that the meat turned out amazing and everyone loved it. I was finally able to cook like to pros and get that taste that everyone wants. Now owning my grill for the last month I have cooked over 45lbs of meat and looking forward to creating new ideas and ways to eat some of the traditional foods. This grill was easy to setup and had way more features than the BGE had. I would also recommend to anyone buying this grill to purchase the stone packages, its a must have for that indirect heat grilling and smoking. A+ Vision

I was born a Weber grill guy and have been for over 40 years but taking the step to shell out the extra cash for this grill was worth every cent. I can't only grill and sear a ribeye at over 700 dregs but also go low and slow to cook a brisket or large pork shoulder.
Lump charcoal is the way to go and only way to go with this Kamodo cooker. Pretty large group of people on net sites have the best tips to really step up the quality of your cook.
You, your family, and friends will taste the difference.

After using a Weber Genesis exclusively for twenty years I wanted to expand my grilling horizons. This purchase has done this for me in SO many different ways. I have eased myself into using this over the past month and keep finding myself thrilled with the results. I started off with burgers and brats and slowly ramped up. Last night I found myself hosting a dinner party featuring the best tri tip I have ever experienced! Tonight we are planning to do our first pizzas on it. The versatility is nothing short of amazing.
If you are thinking about making the move to kamado cooking, do yourself a favor and hit the "purchase" button. Set up was a breeze and the quality of the product is second to none. You will not be disappointed.

Assembly was fast and easy. Getting the charcoal to light was a bet of a learning curve. Also you do need to keep an eye on the temperature and add in charcoal to maintain the temperature. BUT the food that comes out is simply the best ever. I have had different kids of grills and this one makes the best food. The smoke gets all through the food, not just on the outside. I love this grill/ smoker. It is a little expensive but I now see why. The food!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moondog Best Grill Ever!!!!
I purchased this grill/smoker from Home Depot several months ago. It is the best grill/smoker I have ever owned. The grill is so simple to start (I purchased the electric starter), and so easy to cook on. You place the item to be cooked on the grill, and that is it! Let it cook... The temperature is so easy to control. It is easy to cook at 250-275 degrees, and just as easy to cook at 500 degrees. I highly recommend this grill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joe84780 Great Grill! Quality Control Issue
When I received this grill, it was well packaged. The cardboard packaging is thick and protects well. That being said, the unit arrived with a couple of manufacturing defects. Seems this unit snuck past quality control at their overseas factory. Ceramic was molded incorrectly in the ash drawer area. Several large air leaks. I called Vision and they sent me out a new grill to replace this one and just asked that I donate the old one to a local fire dept. CSD Fire now has a kamado. :) The next grill I received was perfect and I'm quite happy with it. Cooking over lump in a kamado is so much better than gas grills or your basic Weber. It's a great product for the price as far as kamados go. Vision stands behind their product and they have good customer service.

Purchased and one use so far. I expected to assemble it since watching the YouTube video. I was at HD and they had the floor model and some pre-assembled ready for sale. I wanted one right out of the box so I went to a different HD to get mine. The pre-assembled ones were poorly assembled and I would have to redo it all anyway.
I preheated the grill to 600 then I brought the temp down to 400 before cooking. It took about 30 mins to get to 600 and then another 30 to get it back down. it cooked 3.5 lbs of Pork loin in 30 mins. meat temp was 150 when I pulled it out of the smoker and rose to 160 before we cut it open. mmm mmm good.
I am pleased so far with the quality and performance. It is heavy to move. have a plan to move it with someone. HD put it in my truck with a fork lift and I slid it down motorcycle ramps to get it safely in my garage. The Packaging was excellent and easy to follow instructions for assembly. TIP: before tightening all the nuts for the shelves; install them first and make sure they move freely. Mine were a little tight but I didn't have to bend the brackets to get them to work. Same with the lid aligning with the spring shock absorber; Get the lid to move open and closed a couple times and then adjust the bottom spring by loosening the nuts that hold it. - retighten
The finish on the black ceramic is stress cracked all over. it wont hinder performance and we had on little chip in the finish but Vision provided some ceramic in black to repair it.
I would buy again had I know now what I didn't know then.
I only say good quality because there were two blemishes that don't impact performance.
