  1. The nutsert is the problem, that's what's pulling out of the sheet metal. No way to "re-insert" them, as I've tried. Hell, I even tried to JB weld the damned things lol
  2. Okay, it's actually the screws that hold the hinge to the body/bottom of the grill, not the top. I'm guessing it's the weight of the lid that applies pressure to these screws and pulled them out. Sadly, I don't have my receipt, but it is indeed under 5yrs old. Maybe I'll contact them to see if there's anything they can do. I don't wanna go buy a new one, because I'm going to get a new Kamado Joe or something similar in the next 90 days or so. Want to pay off the car first :-)
  3. Hey all, haven't been on much lately as I've been working and traveling quite a bit the last 8 months. So, I went out to fire up the Akorn a few months ago and lifted the lid and it seemed to open a bit further than normal. When I inspected the lid hinge, it appears that the top two screws holding the lid hinge have pulled out of the body of the grill. Since the steel is so thin, it looks as if it's due to the weight of the lid applying pressure on these screws when open. I've tried several ways to repair them, none of which are working. This has essentially rendered the grill unusable, which pisses me off. I've had it for a couple years now, and it doesn't break my heart to think that I'll need to go get a new one because they are relatively inexpensive. I'd like to know if anyone has experienced this and discovered a way to repair or some other work around? I'm guessing it's time to go get a kamado joe now :-)
  4. Same for us, when we eat out it's due to scheduling and/or time constraints while running with the kids. When we are home, we cook and normally it's on the kamado :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. This all that was left! Over cooked a bit waiting on family to arrive, but still super moist and the flavor was great Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  7. Haven't posted in awhile, life keeps getting in the way of my fun lol. Been cooking quite a bit lately and wanted to share tonight's cook, pork spare ribs, St Louis style. This is the first pork rib cook I've done on my Akorn, not sure why either, I love them. Last pic is about 2.5hrs into the cook, not quite there yet. 230-250 on the Akorn for the cook Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I'm in the same boat as you regarding buying the BGE or KJ or just saving the money and buying another Akorn. I'm torn because I need the larger size of the BGE or KJ, but could buy two new Akorns and still come out ahead, money wise. For what it's worth, I'm probably going with a KJ....I don't like green :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I wrap mine for sure. Which reminds me, I need a new stone, mine cracked last week on a pork loin cook... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. This is what I was thinking too, but OP gets props for thinking outside the box for sure. I may actually try this one, even though I've never had a problem with just mixing the wood in with the lump. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
