      Comments about Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker Charcoal Grill and Smoker- Black:

      I have owned two of the AKORN smokers. First one the rivets popped out when I opened it to quickly. Knocked it over a day later and it bent/warped and was unable to repair it. However, I was impressed enough I bought another one. I have got it passed 700 degrees. I grill or smoke on it several times a week. Used it in the Mobile Hog Wild BBQ contest and had a low temp smoking fire for 28 hrs on the same load of charcoal. We had 2 Green Eggs and a Bubba Keg on our team and it cooked just as good at 1/3 the cost. Love it! Buying another one after Christmas to make a dbl barrel smoker. Now here are the problems I have found with it. It leaks around all vents. Used hi temp gasket sealant but most of it burned out when I got the grill real hot. Installed oven door gasket cost about five dollars, works great. Had to buy and second Weber cooking grate and a Green Egg Pizza Stone to really use it as an indirect smoker but it works great. You can't use any other type of pizza stone because they crack. I know I went through several different stones before I bought the green egg stone. Char Griller could improve this by making it a little larger and use stainless steel. It is also difficult to remover the legs and side tables if you want to make a custom table. I would still recommend this grill/smoker to anyone

      I love this unit for every kind of cooking outdoors. I have baked pizzas; smoked pork butts, ribs chicken, and made some great steaks. I kicked the old weber charcoal grille to the side now!

      Comments about Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker Charcoal Grill and Smoker- Black:

      First try,I did the Easter turkey on it. Great comments on bird. Ribs next, everybody loved them. I liked how easy it was to put together. The parts were all there, labelled in a blister pack. The instructions were clear and easy to read. It rolls easily on the deck, but the locking caster holds it firmly in place. The shelves fold up and it really doesn't take up much room. I was particularly impressed with the ash collector on the bottom that easily comes apart so that the ashes can be dumped, and it is just as easy to reinstall on the grill.
      The grill is metal, and metal does fatigue with heat and cold. It will be interesting to see how long it will last. The gasket isn't quite as air tight as some of the more expensive grills of this type, but unlike them, I don't think that I will have any difficulty opening the grill in the wintertime. Many of the more expensive ones have a felt gasket that once it gets some grease on it, sticks the two halves of the grill together in cold weather. The King Griller has a diffrent gasket that compresses with the two parts and shouldn't have that trouble.
