I've included a video here to help with general knowledge of the Akorn. It covers setup for a smoke, lighting the grill, damper control, some tips & tricks, and some ideas that you may want to try. Check it out:
Hi Everyone, Was hoping you may be able to give me some pointers. I recently order a "tip top temp" temperature controller for my Kamado Company K5 smoker. My first question is - has anyone ever modified one of these to fit a k5? The only post I found online involved drilling in to the cement which I would hope to avoid if possible. My second question pertains to lighting. In doing some research I found that most folks that use this temp controller avoid lighting all briquettes in an effort to avoid over shooting the targeted temp. Wouldn't your food taste like briquettes then? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading. - J
OK folks, I need some advice from the experts. Fall is upon us and Winter Is Coming which doesn't really mean anything to me normally but this last week while cooking I find myself in the dark with a flashlight trying to make dinner on my KJ. My old house had a nice, covered outdoor area with lighting that I took for granted. Question is does anyone have recommendations for lighting that is weatherproof? Not looking to break the bank and not interested in a permanent fixture as I am renting. If push comes to shove I'll do it with a flashlight but its a little more cumbersome than I would like. Also, if this is in the wrong forum apologies and please relocate as you see fit.
Hi everyone, I am new to the kamado thing but have done a few smokes with good success, however this weekend I had issues with my fire dieing, I use the "volcano" method as posted by another user and it has worked with no issues before, including some over nighters. Guess my question is what are some factors that was snuff out a fire? BTW I do have a maverick on the way to hopefully stop this from happening again.
