Greetings from Austin TX!


Recommended Posts

Hey all. Happy to be here. I picked up an Akorn Kamado off of Craigslist last month, just had my first cook on it and I love it! Going to take a little work perfecting temperature control, but I'm looking forward to doing some nice low and slow smokes soon.


So thankful for such a great, informative community!

Yeah, I studied these forums before getting anything burning so I knew what I was in for. I really am amazed at how efficient this thing is. With the damper and top vent open, the thing is like a forge! I purposely let it get hot and it took no time at all. But when I shut it all down, it was completely cold (ish) in about 3 hours. Very impressive design!

I can see the versatility of the design and so I opted for the cast iron griddle and webber grate combo instead of a stone. I think this will work just as well and the griddle can pull double duty. I may have to try and bake something in this!


Thanks guys!
