Hello folks. New member here.
I have a Vision model B which I bought at Costco last year for $399. Agree with most members' comments here that this grill is built very well and I've had no quality or structural problems with mine.
Here's the issue: I live in the foothills just east of Reno, NV, at an altitude of 5200ft., and using every suggestion the Vision people have made I cannot get the grill temperature above 400 deg with a heat deflector in place. I need to get to about 550 to do pizza. Without the heat deflector I can manage about 575 at best. This with the vents wide open and using Royal Oak lump charcoal.
Are there any other Vision or even BGE owners here who live at high altitude? What is your experience getting your grill above 500 deg?
Thanks in advance
