  1. Pizza 101 - Feedback requested

    Thanks for posting this great video! It is very informative, and very well thought out. I have an Akorn, so my setup will be slightly different, but there are a lot of good tips in here. I appreciate that you took the time to make this presentation!
  2. Resources for the Artisan Bread Baker

    Pizza stone or baking stone or steel for that nice crispy crust! Cat iron Dutch oven.
  3. "Pligramage to see a Pizza Wise Man"

    Thanks for sharing! I have been using ken's bread recipes for a while now. Gotta get the pizza book!
  4. New Akorn owner from SE PA

    Welcome! I just recently joined myself. I also just scored two Akorns on clearance! I use Cowboy lump myself. Also, a lot of folks I know like Royal Oak. Totally agree with the above. Save the briquettes for the kettles. Use lump in your Akorn.
  5. Hello Folks, I just got my Akorn put together a week ago, and did the seasoning burn, then I had to go away for a week for work! How's that for torture?? Anyway, I noticed that I had some temp control issues. The ash pan seems a bit loose. There is a disk in the middle of the the ash pan, on top of a "pin" Is that supposed to slide into a groove on he underside of the main body? I apologize if this has been discussed before; I am a new member and new Akorn owner.

    Thanks for the welcome! This looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.
  7. I just got an Akorn and a Junior for $227 out the door at Wally World. I am now trying to get back in my wife's good graces.
  8. I just purchased an Akorn, and this is exactly what I was looking for! I am trying this when I get home.
  9. New Akorn owner

    Hello, I am Joe, from Arbutus, Md. I just got into the kamado world with my recent purchase of the Akorn. I have done the initial burn, but have not cooked on it yet. I am looking forward to learning from you all!
  10. I have had the Smoke since last November, and I love it. Easy to use, intuitive interface, and very good quality. I switched to the smoke from a Maverick 732.
