i saw this on sale at bass pro shop for 399 shortly after i got my akorn and was feeling slight buyers remorse. good thing i already had my acorn because i may have bought this without checking the reviews. it turns out the firebox cracks after a couple uses. :o

really? i click it and it works...

if you go to www.basspro.com you will find it under camping and then grills. the pictures stats and reviews will be there. i looked at the demo model on the floor when i was there and it looked like a nice solid kamado. apperently it isnt.

The reviews on it are pretty weak. It's current price of $599 would keep me away from it since the Vision Kamado is similarly priced and has a really great reputation via the users on this site...

I saw one and without trying to offend anyone that owns one I would pass. If I recall correctly I think they have a short warranty too.

A coworker of mine picked up a kamado for her husband recently. We have discussed grilling in the past and she was aware that I have owned one for awhile. She was asking if I knew anything about the one she bought. She said it was a brown colored kamado and she purchased it at OSH Hardware store on closeout for $399. I have no idea what brand OSH carries, and wasn't even aware they had one for sale. Has anyone seen a kamado at OSH? I'll have to drop by one of their stores and check it out. My first thought was that it might be a Browning. Her husband grilled some tri tps that she brought to a potluck function last week, and I must say that he got the hang of cooking on a kamado in a hurry, as they were outstanding.

-saw the Browning at Bass Pro. I own an Akorn. Go see one if you can. Make sure you see different units so you can compare.

I am quite happy with my Akorn...

From what I've read about the Browning ... TURN AND RUN!

Here's to great cooks and even better memories with family and friends!

Saw one at Bass Pro Shops the other day. Cooking racks are cheaply made and thinner than anything else I have seen. If anyone looks at anything else I don't see how they could buy one of these especially for the price they are asking.
