  1. I'm not looking for a wing basket or wing grate that will allow me to easily move party wings or Buffalo style wings back and forth from the grill. I hate having to pickup the wings off the grill individually. Any ideas or suggestions?
  2. Akorn Jr cart

    Don't use the PK much anymore so I robbed the cart and gave to the Jr.
  3. Here in the Northeast, Walmarts are starting to clear out grills. As of today, half of the Walmarts in the local area are showing the Akorn at $139 and Jr at $74. To check inventory, see http://brickseek.com/walmart-inventory-checker Akorn SKU 40267083 Junior SKU: 52497353

  5. SV Spare Ribs

    This was just me and the SWMBO so I decided to cook a nice Sunday dinner. Yesterday I picked up a meaty rack of spare ribs and hit them with some Tango Spices :Hot to Trot". The rub have some heat but it is balanced with some tasty flavors. Big thumb's up to Tango Joe! I lit my Akorn Jr and got it set for a ultra low and slow-- ran ~190 with some peach wood. I just wanted to get some some on the ribs so after two hours I pulled them to cool. Then I sealed the rack and cranked up the Anova. The ribs cooked in the bath for 20 hours at 150F. This afternoon I lit my KJ Classic and set it up for some two zone cooking. Heated the rack indirect, applied some ghost pepper sauce and firmed-up the sauce before throwing them over the open flame to give them a bit of char. Next time I will try the SV at 155F to render out more of the fat but the ribs as is were very tender and unreal moist. I always forget to take pics but I did manage to get a snap of a few of the ribs.
  6. Had the fire die out on an overnight pork butt cook. Ended up chucking the whole thing in the trash. Very disappointing, Tonight that gets fixed. Pictures to follow.
  7. Just added my second kamado to my lineup with an Akorn Jr. Have a family of four so I see myself using it a lot during the week. One thing I have not seen mentioned is a circular griddle made for the Akorn or even something "hacked" for it. Anyone know of anything that could work?
  8. @Likes Big Butts This was all his work, but I did stand around while he did stuff. I also helped to apply the rub (picture the movie ghost, he was Demi, I was Swayze). Came out great on the Akorn Jr. Really may have to get one off these things. Quick to get up to temps, hold temps, and is great for going from low and slow to searing. Love my Akorn Senior, just takes a bit longer to get up to temps from low and slow to sear for certain applications. Overall, a great group of grills, highly recommenced for those in the market at this price point.
  9. Hi gang, I'm up here in Portland Maine. Excited to announce that not only am I turning 39 on March 4th, but more importantly my Jr. should be here by then. I ordered the Black model from Lowes. I also ordered the jr stone from the factory. Pics to follow of course. Interested in noting weither the construction quality is any different on the newer models. I have been lurking a bit but this is my big out. Would love to have a ceramic but right now it's not in the cards. Any links or suggestions are biggly welcomed! Thanks gang. J
  10. I made the mistake of going down the BBQ aisle at my local Walmart last Friday. They have the Akorn Jr. in stock now and it's now doing this to me
  11. Akorn Jr

    Does anybody know anywhere that still stocks the Akorn Jr? Wanting to get one for my father in law for a Christmas gift and figured I needed to start looking soon. I heard Menards dropped them and I dont really know anywhere else that carried them? Or if you were a lucky individual that picked up a few extra when on sale and you want to part with one please PM me Thanks!
  12. I built a poor mans's defusser for my Akron Jr today. Total cost = $1.94 plus tax and a few rivits. Bought a cheap cake pan and pizza pan at Walmart. 92 cents each. Made template of cardboard, then cut and folded the pizza pan to fit. Next I rivited the two pans together. I can place a disposable pie pan in the top pan to catch dripping, or use foil.
  13. rib rack on Akorn Jr?

    Good afternoon, all- Has anybody used a rib rack on the Jr yet? Does it fit? Does it fit with St. Louis style spares? Wondering if I can use the Jr for a multiple rack cook. Thanks!
  14. New to Kamados and the site

    New Kamado user checking in! Got a Char-Griller Akorn last month and just got an Akorn Jr today thanks to the heads-up on this forum about the deal at Menards!
  15. I just finished rebuilding a "hand-me-down" Grill Dome which I will be using as my "deck-top" winter griller (the Komodo Kamado is boxed back in its crate for the winter since I don't feel like shoveling through 10 feet of snow). I did some research on "cheap big green egg tables" and happened upon a photo of an inexpensive IKEA kitchen cart. I decided to add my own mod by incorporating an IKEA spice rack and hangers for added storage. I finshed it with SiKKENS Cetol cedar tint stain and voila! (See attached photo). Here's the list of items used: 1. IKEA Bekvam Kitchen cart: $59.99 http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30240348/ 2. IKEA Bekvam Spice rack (note I relocated the placement of the base to act as a backboard - see photo): $3.99 http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40070185/ 3. IKEA BLECKA hooks: $4.99 for 4 http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40031373/
