First cooks on new PK300

Recommended Posts

Got rid of another rusted Akorn kamado, a grill I really enjoyed but was equally dismayed to discard.  Without any place to keep it dry, I needed something that won't rust.  So rather than drop huge money or ceramic or a Blaze, I decided on an old-school PK.  It fits better in my tiny back yard than the Akorn (cart model) ever did, 


So far this thing is proving to be a very versatile cooker.  Unlike the Akorn you can actually lower the temp without extinguishing the fire, and it's a great 2-zone machine without fussing with heat deflectors.  I'm still learning how to manage it, but so far have cooked Korean-style kalbi (cross-cut short ribs) hot and fast, and burgers which I seared then finished on the cool side of the grill, and last night I did some beef back ribs and wings to eat while I watched the game and waited for the ribs.  About a 3.5 hour cook all together, and it was super easy to stabilize at 275 degrees.


This might be the last grill I ever buy, at least until the next one ;-)
