Anyone seen these yet? Just noticed on the Costco website today, wondering if the in store models are blue as well? That may derail my plan of buying a Pit Boss this year, because it won't match the deck. I think looks much the same as last year's otherwise, except for the side shelves. My Costco doesn't have much lawn and garden yet.
Yea im still reading tons and looking at all the options thats for sure!
Im fairly on the fence with the Akorn Jr the only thing holding me back is.. if I do spend the cash on the JR im scratching off any soon to be chance to save up for a full size one.
I guess if anything falls through majorly i'll be hoping on the akorn.
I would say on AVG when I cook meals during the week it works out to be about a regular sized meal for about 3-4 people (figure lunch for me and the wife once or so during the week with left overs... not everytime.. but id say at the least 2-3 out of the 5 day work week.
ive thought about the kettles, just mixed opinion on it... so their more so the same ordeal except when it comes time for low and slow and cold temps....
I may wait and keep an eye on costco prices on the pit boss... if it ever goes on sale I may be able to pick one up if the timing is right
I cant see it being worthwhile to buy any of these ceramic grills used as you loose any kind of warranty which is probably the one big reason the price is higher then your avg grill
I do cook year round rain or shine ive set up my bradley a good few times in some cold weather and snowing days... always find a way when im on a mission to smoke lol
I picked up the Akorn Jr. from Walmart last Friday. Paid $146USD, but got a $25 credit for opening a Walmart account, net cost $121
A few years back I made a Weber Smokey Joe Mini and I had kept the steamer shelf. I cut it to fit the Akron Jr, and placed a 10" Terracotta pot holder wrapped in foil for my diffuser
I did the burn in as read in the instructions and then later that evening set up the Akorn to run at 400 degrees (determined temp using a digital probe at the exhaust vent)
70 minutes later...
My first cook on my brand new Akorn Jr. (400 degrees for 70 minutes = crispy skin wings)
Wings, spaghetti squash & rice
I think I'm gonna like this lil guy, he cooks great!!!
