    Hi Folks

    Welcome to the Forum and congrats on the new-to-you Acorn! Lump vs briquettes... you can use either, they both produce heat. Most on this forum, including me, use lump. It produces much less ash and really doesn't seem to cost more because these grills are very efficient. Good luck with the temperature, it takes a little practice and patience to get comfortable.
  2. Welcome to the Guru Mike and congratulations on your soon to be delivered KJ Classic II. There's lots of great advice on this site, it's an awesome resource. Best of luck with the first cook!
  3. Welcome to the forum and congratulations on you Akorn Jr! I don't have much to offer beyond the good advice you've gotten so far except that you could try starting the fire with heat deflecting stones and grills in place, that way everything is up to temp when the food goes on.
  4. Thanks for posting, you've got a very nice setup and have made some picture perfect cooks!
  5. Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your soon to be delivered KJ Big Joe 2. Share a pic (or 2) of your new Joe on the patio when you get it. Enjoy the first cook!
  6. Welcome to the forum Mike, you've got a tough decision on your hands. The good news is either one is a great choice. I 'make due' with a KJ Classic 1, it hasn't disappointed me after 2 years. Just about any quality grill cover should work, just replace it as needed every 3-4 years. Best of luck!
  7. Welcome to the forum William, glad you joined. You live in an awsome part of GA, I just got back home after a week in a cabing in Hiawassie. Beautiful country up there.
  8. Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your soon to be delivered grill. Best of luck with the first cook!
  9. Welcome to the forum BigBDM and congratulations on your new Kamado Joe. It looks right at home on your very picturesque patio!
  10. Welcome to the forum B3, the Akorn is a great grill! Glad you're getting something useful from this site. A brit, living in Australia, using a Japanese style grill, to smoke food American style. Ya just gotta love it
  11. Welcome to the forum JuneWL! My advice would be to do a 'Search' (upper right hand side of the title bar) using Japan or Japanese as the key word. Best of luck.
  12. Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing your setup, VERY nice, well done! Glad to have you on board.
  13. Welcome to the forum Mike and congrats on the new grill! There's been a lot of discussion about smoke, mostly which type of wood to use for different types of proteins. I have a hard time telling the taste difference between hickory and oak, I certainly wouldn't be able to tell what brand of oak is better than another. Just stay away from pieces with a lot of bark and you should do fine. Best of luck with your first cook!
  14. Cook more and use less gadgets. A jar of cotton balls soaked in alcohol; simple, cheap and easy way to start a fire.
  15. Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new grill. You asked a great question, these grills cost some serious coin and we all want them to last. I live in FL now and keep mine on a covered deck with no corrosion issues after 2+ years. In New England I had a steel Weber Smokey Mountain that I kept outside with a grill cover and had no issues with rust. My advice, for what it's worth, is to keep the grill where it will get the most use, that's what you bought it for. Best of luck with your first cook!
  16. Welcome to the forum Stefano, glad you joined! After seven months of cooking on your KJ Classic II you are no newbie, it sounds like you have been making the most of the time. Always happy to see another nutmegger join the forum, I use to live in Trumbull, just up the Merritt parkway.
  17. Welcome to the forum Moses, I hope you get your grill soon. I still have my Weber gasser, but sold my WSM shortly after getting a KJ Classic. I'm sure you will really like the upgrade, when it finally gets delivered. Hope it's soon!
  18. Looks great, nice plating and kudos on the photography. I tip my hat to all those who can bake, with fruit, over charcoal, and have it come out looking eatable. Well done!
  19. Sorry I can't help with plans for a table but wanted to welcome you to the forum.
