    At least that's what I told my better three quarters. I'm not sure she believed me. And yes, I know the Akorn is a cheap kamado but this one was very cheap! Click image for larger version

              Hey, it’ll cook & the victuals won’t know the difference in the motel bill. Check out Baby Back Maniacs cook off tween kamado, his results might surprise you.

                I have watched that one NOW, just not before. I was actually looking for a table or a cart and this cart with a kamado attached was the cheapest cart.

              I had one and I liked it, it is a good design but cheaply made, I bought mine on sale as well, I consider it a good first Kamado. The wind blew mine off the deck and damaged it a bit but I repaired it. My wife told me to buy a new one so I bought a Primo XL and sold the Akron. A digital temperature read out is a good addition, I never trusted the thermometer that came with it. A bag of lump charcoal will last a long time. Enjoy.

                A new cooker and a good bargain = a good day, indeed.

                    I have an Akorn myself that I have had for almost 4 years. It has served me well. It is a great pizza and bread oven, and I am told that the smoked turkey I make with it is legendary.
                    It is definitely at the lower price point of the market, but it is a good investment, in my opinion. Especially if you are just wondering if you want to get into Kamados and aren’t sure yet.

                    congrats on the new cooker!

                      Congrats and I believe it's more about the operator than the tool. Look forward to some outstanding cooks.
