Full Review - Vision Grills HD1 Charcoal Kamado

Kamado grills started out as a relatively expensive, specialty charcoal grill. As they gained in popularity more companies started making them and they started showing up in all kinds of stores. The original makers stuck to a distribution system that favored small, local retailers and avoided the big box stores. This left the door wide open for Vision Grills.

These Chinese imported grills can be found in a wide range of big box stores. They are not the same quality as the older brands, but they are more budget friendly. The Vision HD1 is comparable to the standard sized Kamado grills from Big Green or Primo but lower priced. Of course, this comes at a cut in quality as well.

Now, for around $600USD you get the complete package. This makes this Kamado Grill much less expensive than the better brands. This model is cart mounted with fold down side tables and comes with basic set of tools. While not particularly bad, don't expect the durability or quality with the more well known brands.
