Akorn Jr.


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I picked up 6 Akorn Jrs at $35 each and passed up on 3 more. A couple will become gifts. The rest, who knows, but the price was right.
 

Also scored a large Akorn for $69 and had to pass on two more.  A bit big to store for a year in hopes of selling next spring. Already have one that I've had for a few years now.

Got mine 7/31 $74 in Rockaway NJ Walmart . Took it home and made a couple of mods . Uglied it up but it holds temps great and is now my every day go to cooker . Haven't used large Acorn or Large Egg since getting JR . It's all about function over form . Extra TipTop and extra Smokeware got new home . Really ugly but you can park that little guy at any temp you want and it will stay there just by dialing it in with TipTop . It is sitting on old Parrot perch . Uses hardly any charcoal .

I picked up a few in Rockaway this week for $35. If you still have the box and receipt, you might be able to get them to adjust the price.

The mods would end up more than tripling the cost for me if I got them for my JR. :-P

Holy crap.........I found one $35.00 and I had to drive to a Walmart over an hour away!!!!! I have it seasoned and ready to go!! I found it on that brick site but had to call to hold it. When I called they had 3 in stock I asked for 2 one for me one for my neighbor. When I got there there was one left!!!! I couldn't believe that web site worked thanks all!!!
