  1. charcoal basket

    Could probably get a smaller grate and put it where the smoking stone goes
  2. Ceramic Akorn at Lowes

    Curious to see how they hold up. Also curious if any adaptors will be made for it to use the flame boss.
  3. To buy or not to Buy?

    I'm very glad I bought it, turns out great bbq. Pulled pork, ribs, chicken wings, beer can chicken, steaks, burgers, chops etc... Haven't made a pizza yet but it's on the list It is a good intro into kamado cooking and I have been happy with it. When this one goes I'll most likely get a ceramic kamado though. Either way kamado cooking is great
  4. Want to try this, what size pants is that? Those look amazing
  5. New Flame Boss 300

    Also when I put the fan on I push the sliding door on the akorn tight and shove a skewer in it to hold it solid. Seems to have helped
  6. New Flame Boss 300

    Mine didn't overshoot the last cook. I go in steps set it for 200 and let it do it's thing and after it's good there 230, then final. Still trying to figure out the best exhaust. If I have it just a sliver open the fan runs alot to keep temp. Seems like after I add the food I can crack the exhaust open more so it doesn't have to use the fan as much. Getting there, only used it 3 times and once it locks in it's gold. Actually like that it connects to Alexia so I can check the temp while I prep the meat.

    You guys covering the fan during rain? Made ribs last weekend during a snow storm and made a cover from tin foil, interested to see what other use to protect the fan.
  8. Now grab a pork butt and put it to work
  9. A must have. Use it just about every cook minus burgers and steaks.
  10. I like it, most likely going to buy a jr for grilling this Summer. No need to fire up the big guy for burgers or a steak.
  11. First overnight smoke

    Looks good. Never enjoyed overnight cooks so I spent the cash and bought a flame boss for the akorn.
  12. Wings on the Akorn Jr

    Love making wings on the akorn. Need to grab a jr eventually
  13. New Flame Boss 300

    Had my first cook with it. Was going good and steady at 230 when I was letting the grill stabilize then Like a couple minutes later it's 270 and climbing. Set temp was 240 and I tried working up to it. Don't think I had the fan in tight enough. Had to switch to manual until I got the temps back down to 230 and after it stabilized I put the FB back on and set to 248 and it performed great for the rest of the cook. So I love it but need to figure out how to avoid overshooting.
  14. New Flame Boss 300

    yeah I figured it out, my fire went out the first try. lite the grill again and set the FB to 200 and it went to 240, was aiming for that area this time so I just set it for 240 and let it go. Went a few hrs at 240 then I kicked up to 250 and it held there until I shut it down. Still had the top a little too open the second try but think I have it figured out for the most part. think im going to like it alot, will find out sunday when I do my first pork butt. Also anyone know the range for the phone to still control the FB? restricted to the house?
  15. New Flame Boss 300

    got it locked at 240, still overshot my target but not as bad. as of now its holding tight to the 240 set temp
