  1. I'm not really that fancy so does chicken and salmon count as surf and turf? River and yard may be a better description.
  2. Anyone know of or have a shelf for the E6? I've seen some shelves for the Weber kettles but I don't think they'll work with the Summit. Something like this? https://www.etsy.com/listing/877045422/side-table-for-weber-charcoal-kettle
  3. Akorn! For goodness sake, use more charcoal. Folks, this is just a rant because my wife is tired of hearing me complain. I cooked on an Akorn for 6 years and for the life of me, I can't break old cooking techniques. Since getting the Summit, I've struggled reaching my desired temp. The Akorn was smaller and a different shape. You can run those things for hours on a small load of fuel. My Summit seems to take half a bag of charcoal to do anything. Whether I'm searing steaks, roasting a chicken, or smoking a pork shoulder, I never load enough fuel. The baskets that came with the Summit will barely get the grill above 350F. I'm not complaining about the grill, just my failure to use it properly. I've had a couple of good cooks, but most have been a struggle. I just have to remember that this is not an Akorn. Load it up and let it burn!
  4. Looking at adding a temp controller to my Summit. Can't decide between the Thermoworks Billows w/ Smoke X4 or the BBQ Guru DX3. I'd appreciate some feedback on experience with these controllers.
  5. Ordered my Summit E6 yesterday from HD. I've been wanting one since the original version came out. We just bought a new house and the wife told me to get what I wanted. This is an upgrade from an Akorn, which served me well for 7 years. I agree the price is still a little elevated but the surface area gained over some competitors is significant. Plus, it's a Weber.
  6. Thank you! I'm also looking at the Billows.
  7. Can someone confirm whether the latest version of the Summit E6 has the knockout port? I don't see it in images on the Weber website. I'm looking to purchase soon and would like to install a fan and temp controller.
  8. Closeup of how the Akorn sits in the cart. Remove the Akorn shelves. Cut off the knobs that lock the shelves in place on the shelf brackets. Cut slots in the 2x4s of the frame. Sit the shelf brackets in the slots. If you don't have one already, this is a great excuse to purchase an oscillating saw/tool.
  9. Thanks for getting that photo in there. I thought I could hot link to Amazon Photos.
  10. Scrap wood cart for my 5 year old Akorn. It needs some love, but will most likely replace with new Akorn this summer. https://www.amazon.com/photos/shared/AEUxfX7zTVmwGI5XvQGnnw.uKr3ndHTRXsLZ47lo4o3j4
  11. I live in Alaska. I've cooked a pork shoulder for 10 hours at -35F. Akorn held 250 the entire time. My boss was astonished that I had pulled pork in January. She has a fancy Treager. Her electronics tend to fritz out around -10.
  12. Thanks. My taste buds really like smoke and curry together.
  13. I love before and after pics. Oiled up the bird. Rub consisted of garlic, salt, curry powder, ground ginger, rubbed thyme, and a touch of black pepper. Smoked over hickory on the Akorn.
