Default Vision ceramic grill deal alert - Samsclub

Sams has the vision b serious ceramic grills on sale for $349. If you check you store inventory online it probably says they are out of stock. My local sams said out of stock but I called and they had 38 in stock. In store price was $499 but it did ring up for $349. Really good deal on a ceramic grill!!

Anyone else try this deal to see if they ring up for 349? Thinking about checking out the Sherman store tomorrow for one of these.

Looks good. Mine is slightly different. Can you use an electric charcoal starter? Get the all natural lump charcoal.

Heavy SOBs aren't they!

Have a couple questions for you guys. How long will these grills run on a full load of lump charcoal, long enough for a brisket/turkey?

Can you cook a full sized brisket?

Can you use it as just a burger/hot dog grill?

Any issues with the ceramic cracking?

Overall compare to the Green Egg?

Ya it is heavy!!!! The old lady and I sweated a little getting it out of the pickup and into the cart. Mine does not have the slot for the electric starter but I’ve been reading have cotton balls soaked in rubbing alcohol make really good fire starters..

Razor, I just got mine on Thursday so I can’t give much info although they do say the charcoal will last plenty long for 12-16 hour smoke and possibly still have enough left to do some grilling

And you can definitely do burgers/dogs and really anything that you cook on a normal grill. These just allow you to be able to smoke, bake, sear, and grill. You do have to add a heat deflector/pizza stone to smoke

I assume the deflector is an extra expense? I would also expect there are a lot of other extra stuff available?

Ya this model didn’t come with the deflector. It’s really just a pizza stone. There are expensive options and cheaper options or also more diy. There are a lot of accessories for them but I think all I really need is the deflector and I’m set

Picked up the grill yesterday, $399 at the Burleson Sams. Had to go to HD to get the heat deflector.

Two whole chickens yesterday afternoon, a pork butt and ribs today.

I have one. Yes it’ll easily do a brisket on one load of charcoal and have plenty left over. Make sure when you assemble it to get a really even seal on closing. Don’t go for maximum heat or you’ll be replacing the gaskets too.

About $1000
Vision has more vent control too.

Cooter, based on what I have read, about $500. I watched several YouTube vids, the Vision held its own. The egg may be better overall, but IMO not at the price point.

About 5 hours into the pork butt, less than a half bag of lump charcoal, no refills, holding @300. The egg may have better temp regulation, I have top and bottom vents closed and still running 300.

I'll post results.
