    Cold Dutch Oven Bread

    That is some fantastic looking bread! I am going to try the cold oven method. It could save a lot of time and energy.

    Smash N Sear Burger Tool

    Probably a dumb question, but do you pre-heat the smasher?

    Served me well for 10 years...

    That's neat! I like it.

    KAB on Akorn

    Akorn does make a basket for the Large.n it is mainly for adjusting the fire height, but it may also be good for removing charcoal. It is also a LOT cheaper than the Kick Ash basket.

    Baking On the Akorn

    I'm glad it worked out for you! That smoking stone does wonders, doesn't it? I don't know why it doesn't come stock with the Akorn.

    Baking On the Akorn

    For my bread baking, I usually use a pizzacraft double pizza stone. It is two pieces that fit together, leaving an air gap in the middle. I find this invaluable in keeping the bottoms from burning before the tops are done. I leave the heat deflector in place. If the bread is done and I want more top browning, it goes on the top grate for a few minutes. I have had a lot of success baking this way. I'm thinking that for a pie you might start on the lower grate, and if it gets too hot on the bottom, move it up to the top grate.

    Pizza Ring

    I haven't tried it out yet, but I am getting ready to pull the trigger on it. For $50, I think it will be a worth a try! This one is for the Akorn, but I imagine it would fit any 20" (inside diameter) kamado. http://bbqube.us/Akorn-Kamado-Grill-Pizza-Ring-By-BBQube_p_17.html
  9. Superb! Beautiful presentation! If I had seen this in time you would have had my vote. I love the taco rack.

    Took the new Red Kettle for a whirl.

    Although I love my kamados, I still have and use my two Weber kettles to this day. I have the Slow 'n Sear accessory for my kettle, and it makes an awesome combination!
  11. If I have time, I will lightly salt the thighs, and let them sit in the fridge uncovered several hours to overnight. This gives the skin a good chance to dry. Indirect High Heat.

    Rendezvous Ribs

    Love Rendezvous Ribs! Great for when you don't have a long time for a cook. Yours look great!

    Panko Crusted, Cherry Stuffed Pork Loin

    Yum! What type of cherries did you stuff it with?
  14. I bought an Akorn as my first kamado for the exact same reason. I love it, and cook on it frequently. I got an Akorn and an Akorn Junior on clearance last year, and I could not have been happier with them, especially at that price point. I have recently cooked on a Large Green Egg, and although I liked it a lot, I am getting ready to pull the trigger on a Pit Boss from Costco. I have smoked up to a 20 lb turkey on the Akorn, and the junior is superb for searing the heck out of a steak. I do pizza and bread baking on my Akorn as well.
