Questions & Answers


I have a question this i tem

Asked by Phong April 14, 2021

What is the length of the gas connection hose?

Asked by Visionary February 21, 2021

It is about 2.5-3 feet long. It needs to be wrap on the right side of the grill using supplied holders.

does it use natural gas

Asked by GJ October 8, 2020

Don’t know,cart has propane caddy. Really ez to set up & use.

Is it easy to put together

Asked by K1 December 18, 2019

Nothing really to put together, it slides into your grill and hose attaches to propane tank, I ran mine from line from my house tank so as to keep from refilling small propane tank.

What is the difference between this Gas Insert Model VGK-GPAK-S1 and Model VGK-NPAK-S1? One is fo...

Asked by Ross December 1, 2019

I recommend the S series because it is both gas and charcoal. For fast grilling after work during the week set it on the gas setting to create a deliciousmeal. During the weekend use the charcoal setting and enjoy grilling slowly. This particular grill is great for cooking a wide variety of meals. You can create perfectly charred burgers, juicy steak, delicate fish and a great pizza using it.

can the quick change gas insert be used for natural gas?

Asked by kim November 3, 2019

No, this insert cannot be used for natural gas.

gas insert

Asked by laura May 19, 2019

Sounds like the check valve in your propane tank needs to be reset. Search internet for “How to Reset Check Valve in Portable Propane Tank”, then follow procedures.

Asked by bobson March 12, 2019

You can certainly cook at low temperatures such as 225 with the gas insert. While you won't be able to put any wood in the grill for its smoke, the seasoning that is coating the walls of your kamado grill will be able to impart its flavor to your food. Simply setting your gas insert to the low setting should put it at a temperature that is perfect for low cooking.

The quick change insert is a good idea -- it eliminates the need for 2 grills on the deck. The quick chuck provided is very hard to use. I ordered the grill and the insert at the SAME Time -- Why did Vision send me a cover that won't cover everything ???????????? It's tooooooo SMALL. A strong wind will probably blow it off -- guess I have to live with that part. Seems to work fine so far.
A must have!
A must have for the Kamado grill! We love having the gas insert. The only downside to this product is it’s expensive.

Dificult to install
I have a Vision grill C model and was told by Home Depot that the S insert would work in it. The insert did not "just slide in" to the smoker. In fact it took 4 hours of very tough filint to open up the cavity to accept the insert. As well, two screws from the underside just fell out while I was fitting the insert. Once I started the flame, it worked well and was stable at 250f for 2 hours smoking pork chops. Using lump charcoal for 6 hears, I was never able to keep the flames from lowering if I walked away for an hour.

Response from Vision GrillsApr 1, 2021
I am sorry to hear about the Ash Drawer Issue you are having! Please reach out to us Directly at help@VisionGills.com. If you have a Professional C Series Grill, a Professional S Series Ash Drawer will not work! We want to rectify this for you! Once you get the correct Ash Drawer, you will notice a HUGE improvement on removing and replacing.

And keep in mind, regulating your temps: Especially Low temps will be a challenge at the beginning. This is not an uncommon issue since the grill is brand new. We suggest that you grill on the grill a few weeks to allow creosote/flavor to build up, that will act as a sealant for your grill. Once you have the Creosote, you will notice controlling your temperatures will become easier and walking away will not be an issue!

The gas insert is simple and easy to use. It works well however only giving it 4 stars because the electric lighter only worked the first time and hasn’t sparked since. I tried changing the battery but still nothing. Using a long stem light is fine. Other than that everything is good.
