So I have myself an Akorn for about 4 years. Through a couple moves while building a new house, it was pretty neglected... sat outside, uncovered through winter, rain, etc. Needless to say due to the metal build, it rusted something bad. I ended up getting rid of it and decided I'd see what the Weber Kettle hype was all about. I picked myself up Kettle Master Touch.......... wow... I freaking hated it. Was horrible to keep temps. Took forever to get up to temp. Was terrible to use with lump (as it fell through the grates)... just a bad overall experience. Cooked on it about 4 times then sold it. Now... I live in a VERY windy area. Like 10-15 mph winds almost constantly.... so I'm sure that played a part... but it was no enjoyable. I decided to pick myself up a new Kamado Joe Classic from Lowes for $650..... I'm in love.
This type of video is right up my ally. I love bbq gear...In fact, that's how I found John's ManCaveMeals channel in the first place (which John reopened a few months ago in case you didn't notice.) I've been trying to do this cook for months (before summer), but haven't had a chance to make it happen until this weekend. I cooked two pork butts side by side. One was done in the Weber Summit Charcoal Grill and one was done in the Weber 27 in kettle with the Slow 'N Sear. Then we compared the results. Both were great, but they turned out surprisingly very different. I think I liked the kettle version better. My wife liked the other, of course. I think it came down to the smoke profile. I really hope you guys enjoy this. It was a TON of editing, but I like the way it came out.
