I had the #3001 gas grill and loved it. I loved it dearly all the way up to the point where I gave it to my GF's brother. I didn't rid myself of it because it wasn't a good grill. I just switched back to charcoal and didn't use it anymore. My GF and I both decided that we preferred the flavor of the food cooked over charcoal much better.

I have a chicken on the Kamado right now so we'll have a new video tonight :)

Been following this thread from the beginning. JM you have done us all a great service with all the work you put into this review.

I went north yesterday and Lowes had no clue what this was, all thought they did look it up and tell me they did not stock it.

This afternoon I went south and found the little bugger. So, yes I did pull the trigger. I opted to put it together myself as I noticed that they had not done such a great job doing it.

Oh yea, no coupon but I always get 10% Veterans discount. $269.10 plus tax, how could I go wrong?

And the best part, my wife Sharon (BHSLH) told me to put it on her credit card.

She must want something?

Actually when she came home and I told her that I bought it she said I could just give her the cash that I put on her card. She just wanted the points. Go Figure
Still a good deal!

I am out of luck, all the Lowes around me are out of stock until the 15th, my local Home Depot has Performers on sale for $260.

My experience is a Kamado style and Performer are a great compliment to each other. Like many here, my opinion is that the propane start on the Performer is worth the $ bump.

I would love for you to post this over in the Egghead Forum. Those guys get so riled up when someone posts anything that compete with their BGE's.

I actually did. I went there when I was shopping for an egg to get some advice. When I decided to get this instead, i started a thread about it called "Forgive me Eggheads for I have Sinned." It met with mixed reactions. Most of them were what I expected.... It'll never be as good as an egg... you get what you pay for... etc... etc... A couple of them asked me more about what I had bought and I posted the video links.

I used to lurk on that forum a couple years ago and most of those guys were brutal on anything that wasn't a BGE. Lurked earlier today and they seemed to have improved on that some.

Chicken looks great, what kind of pan setup did you use for it. I don't have much luck when it comes to finding smaller accessories like that. Another great vid post. Thanks!

I have nothing against people having a lot of pride in the gear they own and use. I'm the same way.

I used a pizza pan as a heat deflector and then i just put that little roasting pan with the rack on the cast iron grate. I could have done without that but I'm still working on seasoning up my CI grate. I sprayed it down with some cooking oil before i started the cook. That roasting pan and rack are the ones that came with my Oster Toaster Oven :)

Funny, a couple months back, I found a post on their forum about the Vision Kamado Grill that I purchased from Costco. Most of the comments were negative, that the quality wasn't in the same league as BGE. I piped in that I recently purchased the grill and was very happy with it. Wow, did I make a mistake. What followed was an all out flaming session. I didn't back down and actually thought I did an OK job of putting a couple of their biggest bullies in their place. Eventually a few other regulars came to my defense and the thread calmed down. I noticed since then, they've been a bit more receptive to other's opinions.
