  1. This is my take on the "I'm Baking in Here" challenge. I thought this would be made on the KJ I ordered at the end of September. Unfortunately a month later I still don't have a functioning KJ . Luckily I do still have my old Char-Griller. It might have worked out for the best since I'm accustom to it and had no trouble maintaing a 350 cook temp. Also of note, this is not my original recipe. It was passed down to me and I know is found in The Cake Doctor Cookbook. These are the ingredients. I grouped them by how they are used. The cake: non-stick spray and flour for pan, 1 packa

In short, I’m hooked and I’ve used mine 2-3 times/wk since I got it six weeks ago. S
  5. Hey everyone. New to the forum and new to komado cooking. I’ve been using an electric smoker for a couple of years, that’s the extent of my smoking experience. I got the Akorn a couple weeks ago and had a few questions for the group. Let me first say thanks to everyone on this forum. The information on here helped me pick my cooker and have helped make some tasty food already. Some background info. I added the Nomex gasket to the main portion where the lid makes contact, on the air intake and at the ash pan. However, the portion around the ash pan burned off for the most part. I thin
