New to kamados so so I bought the Akorn to try them out. So far, I love kamados, if not my Akorn. the build quality is not so great, but I expected that, to some degree. I have used it a few times for general grilling, but today, I am smoking my first Boston Butt. I bought the smoking stone (good deal from hayneedle.com) and a Kamado Joe water pan. Kingsford Competition Briquets in a ring, water pan on the smoking stone, hickory chips (should have gotten chunks) soaked in water in an aluminum foil pouch on the main grill surface, butt rubbed and on elevated extender. Temps fluctuating a bit, and I'm shooting for a target temp of about 280. So far, so good. Feel free to tell me I'm doing something wrong! I'm a noob when it comes to smoking meat. I discovered the wonder of crockpot BBQ this past winter (down to making my own sauce), and decided I needed to go down the road of making the real deal. I will invest in a better build on a kamado once the Akorn rusts out.
Hey y'all! Picked up an Akorn about 4 months ago, and today, tried my first brisket. Got a small 4 flat (choice) and did half salt half pepper and let it rest overnight. Smoked with apple at 225 on my Akorn. I got a PartyQ yesterday, and was very very happy with it's performance. It took a good bit longer than I expected, at almost 8 hours for 4 lbs. Overall, I was really happy. The flat was pretty moist and tender (7 out of 10 probably), my bark was outstanding, and the flavor was great. Thanks for all the help!
