          Mine is on the way from OwensBBQ.com in one of the Dakotas. Unlike MadHunkyMeats.com, he had a middle size for the 22.5" that was a few dollars less and his shipping was a few dollar cheaper.

          I'm looking forward to doing wings too and I thought I could do smaller contained fires for small cooks like a couple of burgers.

            I got the V because of wings. They come out awesome - no flipping or turning. Your choice if you want to increase the crisp on the skin by moving closer to the heat.

            Can't wait to do Kebabs! I need to check out the "fire ring" ?

            Those flexible skewers? Those seem pretty cool. I know ones like them before. The ones at Owens BBQ say you can marinate while on the skewers

            Burn, that was what convinced me to get the Vortex, smaller cooks and save charcoal. A couple of burgers or steaks. And the wings. There is only two of us at home.

            Go to OwensBBQ.com and click on Vortex. They show sample pictures on everything the Vortex does.

          DW and Burn, just pressed the button and have one on the way from Owens.

            Huskee, I did not use my debit card or my wife would find out. Used my credit card instead so when it gets here it is too late. I then cook her something using it and all is well in the world. I don't doubt for a minute you would give it back but what would be left??? LOL

            Yes! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Seems like another excellent Weber accessory.

              Oh jeez what is that ddddddddmn thing? Do you put it over charcoal or the food?? I will never learn how to grill anything at this rate. I spend too much time looking at all the toys on here....and enjoying the camaraderie and all the amaZing info on here. Good thing it gets dark early and the chores are done!

                OTR check out the above links the folks have posted. It's for the charcoal, to create an indirect zone in a kettle. It has a couple different arrangements you can use to fit what you want to do. Pretty cool actually.

              #11
              Thx Huskee I see now how it works and agree...cool tool. Which I may try next summer at cow camp where my kettle is instead of just shoving coals to one side.
              Meanwhile, take care and stay warm. You folks are getting hammered

                It's going to be interesting to compare this with my Smokenator - the different layouts, heat projection, efficiency, etc. Owens BBQ sends them Priority Mail and expected delivery is tomorrow - yeehaw!

                  Hi Burn,

                  Purchased the V over the Smokenator because of the layout for doing wings. Don't need to flip or rotate them. Just put 'em on and let 'em cook. CooksIllustrated takes them up to 180, and boy are they melt in your mouth.

                  I have the Smokenator on the Xmas list as I think it would work better for a Turkey, and I want to the option to be able to cook down at the grate level, too.

                  Lottsa options with the V, check out the earlier links posted... Check out the ring of Kebabs!

                I remember seeing a pic of a grill on this site that was a combination of the vortex principle. I didn't mark it so I can get back to it. Does anyone else re,member seeing it? It was all black and was on a vortex type stand

                    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                    Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                    3 burner gas grill

                    The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
