  1. Im doing a 5 rib beef roast on my Akorn. Loaded smashed potatoes, green bean casserole and cream cheese bisquits.

    Drip pan vs. Deflector

    I don't own a smoker stone for my Akorn jr. Instead I bent a 1/4 inch steel rod into a triangle that sits on the 3 smoker stone tabs. I place a foil pan on the triangle and add 1/4-1/2 inch of water in the pan. That set up makes it a heat difuser and drip pan in one. I use this setup for slow smoking only but for hot grilling I leave it out and grill direct.

    Good Smoke vs Bad Smoke

    I guess that's why the best tasting steak for me is one cooked over a campfire or santa maria style.
  5. Rain huh? I forget what rain is like. It hasnt rained a drop here in 4 1/2 months. BTW, that's a cool looking red kamado you have.

    El Pastor Tacos

    That looks like a great interpretation of Al Pastor. Nicely done sir. I'm gonna copy your style on my kamado soon.

    Need help identify some pork cuts

    Looks like partial racks of spareribs to me.
  8. I use the weber grate and make a drip pan with HD foil. That catches most of the drippings and is cheaper and easier to dispose of.

    Starting the fire

    I usually use the oil soaked paper towel method but lately I tried the Dorito chip trick. They work amazingly well
  10. Thanks for the review. I got six years on my Akorn that lives at the edge of my covered patio. I just bought a new one and gave my old one to a buddy. It still serves him well.
  11. These split chickens make a nice dinner for my Girl and me. It smells so good smokin on my Jr.
