  1. Mine only leaks where the wires from my remote goes through and usually not even there. Take your fingers and pinch and gently roll the gasket all the way around and it should stop leaking. You will not find a better gasket on the market.
  2. I bought an acorn several years back and take good care of mine so it is not showing much if any wear so far. I store mine in a small room in my garage and roll it back and forth when I cook on it. I thought about getting a ceramic kamado a few times but I do not want to have one sitting on my deck full time nor out in my yard full time and the sheer weight and maneuverability prohibits me from rolling one around like I can do with my Acorn. It cooks as well as an Kamado I think and holds temps great once I learned it. I can light mine, throw on the meat and walk away till it is done worry free. In fact I have done several overnight cooks without bothering to check it at all. I saw a couple of remarks about the Acorn needing mods, etc when new and I say BS as I did nothing at all to mine and it is airtight today still. Full disclosure: I do use a Tip Top Temp (TTT) when cooking on mine. Works well.
  3. That is growing on me. Might be my next truck.
  4. I hope you mean Auburn, GA or else there is a town in GA this old retired revenue agent never heard of.
  5. I agree with John on this. If you do get water in dump all the ash then prop it up with the slide wide open on the bottom and let it drain till nothing is coming out. I usually turn mine upside down for a while after draining with it propped just to make sure.
  6. Check them at 4 hours if going bare. Anywhere from 4 to 6 hours for spares depending on the temps you are cooking at.
  7. I will assume that most of you own smart phones. Go to the app store and download one of the free call blockers. If it is a fraud call that has been reported it will be blocked. If not you can block it on your phone. Mine rarely gets any calls anymore.
  8. For y'all in GA with a Kroger they have back pork ribs Friday and Saturday for $1.67 a pound with a Digital Coupon. Looks like a limit of 5 per card swipe.
  9. Sounds like it might be over heating. I would get a new motor.
  10. Never thought of this but will definitely try it soon. Thanks for the video.
  11. I was 64 years old and recovering from open heart surgery when I put mine together by myself in my open garage with temps in the 90s. I took my time and read and followed instructions and all went well. It is not rocket science for certain but the instructions do help. When I got an Akorn Jr not long after it was a breeze after doing the large one.
  12. Looks delicious to me. I will try that before long.
  13. I agree with it having a leak. Light that sucker up and throw some smoking wood on and let it get to smoking really well then close her up as tight as you can. If there is a leak it will become apparent in a minute or so.
  14. If I am not doing an overnight cook on my butts I do them around 300 degrees now. I can't tell the difference in the finished product and I don't get a stall at all when doing so.
