  1. I use the TTT (Tip Top Temp) and it has never failed to work perfectly after almost 5 years of service, I just set it and walk away.

    Acorn vs The Others

    My Akorn is 4 years old and still looks new. I store mine in a small room in my garage and roll it around to different points depending on wind direction when I cook on it. I would not be able to do this with the majority of the ceramics due to the weight involved and the difficulty of rolling them on grass and uneven surfaces. My nephew has owned a large BGE for around 10 years now and after watching me move my Akorn around and cook on it he went and bought one for his Dad and himself. He recently told me that he is now using the Akorn for almost all of his cooks. The BGE must be getting lonely.

    Shuttin’ er down

    The only time my kamado stayed lit for hours was when I neglected to shut the top vent all the way on shutdown. It normally cools off in about 3 to 4 hours depending on how hot I cooked but was still barely lit the following morning when left cracked open. Any air flow can keep the coals lit.
  4. I worried about mine for the first cook or two then realized it did not need watching at all. I set my vents before putting on the meat now and never even look again until it is about done.

    New Akorn leaking

    Pinch the gasket all the way around it.
  7. I did mine by myself and it took around 2 hours but I was taking my time. I have done a couple of the minis now in around 30/45 minutes.
  8. I had no idea that anyone could ever get too much bark on a boston butt.

    The random pictures thread...

    I had one on my feeder several times last year in GA and thought it was just a weird colored Cardinal. I hope he comes back this year but have not seen him yet.

    Crab Cakes

    Is that last ingredient 1/2 cup of bread crumbs or 1/2 package?
  11. Yea but the grass is growing here in GA and people are staring to grill out a lot. I do year around anyway.

    KAB on Akorn

    I never saw the need for one in an Akorn. It only takes a minute or so to pull and dump already.
