The Akorn Kamado Kooker can maintain consistent temperatures from 200° to 700° F. This wide range allows the Akorn to cook variety of foods such as steaks, fish, chicken, ribs, brisket, pizza, bread and even cookies. The innovative design uses double walled steel with insulation. In order to generate heat, air must be flowing through the grill and around the coals. Air flow causes food to dry out. With the Akorn insulated design, it retains heat better, requiring less heat and less air flow. Therefore, insulated heat, juicier meat.

  • 306 sq. in. of primary cooking space and a 165 sq. in. warming rack
  • Insulated design means more heat uses less charcoal and less airflow means insulated heat for juicy meat
  • Akorn is the only Kamado style grill with an easy dump ash pan allowing ash to be removed easily from the grill without a mess
  • Unique cart design allows for easy maneuverability around decks, patios and driveways that often have uneven surfaces

Grill cover is a MUST have. My unit developed "surface rust" within 6 months. Company will NOT stand but their product for "surface rust". The bottom tray will rust through competitor within 12 months.

Is this large enough to smoke a whole turkey?

Asked by: charles
Sure can. I did a 11.5 lbs turkey for thanksgiving dinner. Smoked it with hickory chips, "beer can" style using red wine. About 2.5-3 hours at 325-350F. It came out perfect! Crisp skin and nice juicy meat, both white and dark.

I've heard nothing but good things about this grill and so far I have to agree .This grill is solid and love everything about it. Assembly was a piece of cake. Temperature control was not as big of an issue as I anticipated but as you've probably read it is easier to go up than come down. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was that the dome came in damaged which sounds like a common occurrence with the way its packaged with the shelving. Not a Home Depot issue but an issue that the manufacturer should look at improving with their packaging and logistics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Grill itself is wonderful, BUT I absolutely love the grill. The customer Service from Char-Griller ( The company who makes the Akorn grill) has been outstanding. My only complaint is the grill I picked up from the Home Depot was beat up pretty severely. The hardware pack it was open and I maybe had 30% of the hardware I needed to put the grill together. Both the body and hood of the grill were beat up, and they were replaced by the company directly to my house. The grill basically sat in my living room floor for almost 3 weeks until I could finally get all the pieces I needed replaced. I have used the grill multiple times already and I have really enjoyed it. If you can get one that is not beat up I highly recommend the grill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glenn Sprayberry I had heard about the big green egg but did not want to invest that amount of money. . I bought the acorn to try this type of cooking and have been amazed of what i have achieved with your product. I can only tell your future customers that the quality is in the product and you will be very difficult satisfied .

Of course there will be a learning curve as you learn to control the cooking temperature by regulating the airflow. Because this is not ceramic (hence the low price) this grill is subject to rust. In fact, the ash tray collects water even with the grill lid closed. This will cause rusting over time. I contacted the manufacturer regarding the collection of water and their answer was that with or without the cover, they do not recommend keeping the grill exposed to the elements - in other words, keep this in your garage which at least for us is impracticable. I have read on blogs that drilling a small hole in the ash pit will drain the water - but the manufacturer discouraged this because of air control. I have used this for a month now and the results are amazing - everyone who eats the results are amazed!

I was skeptical as they compared this to the green egg, but the price difference tempted me. The smoker was easy to put together but after a year it started coming apart. Now two years later and I can't us this junk when it is windy unlike my Weber smoker. This product did not last long, buyer beware char griller is junk, I will never ever ever buy anything char griller again. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money and get a quality grill/smoker !!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I finally pulled the trigger on this awesome all around... I finally pulled the trigger on this awesome all around grill after a ton of research. I didn't want a huge fuel burning giant when it is just me and sometimes a small get together. I wasn't too keen on spending a bunch on propane, or the time consuming charcoal. I knew I had to sacrifice something as with all things you can't have it all. I originally was going to do gas, but it didn't seem like the one's I looked at were of good quality for a decent price. I'm not rich but I had saved around $300 to buy a quality grill that would last for some time. I have also found that all the food I have ate that was cooked on a gas grill wasn't the juiciest either. I decided I would deal with the time consuming charcoal reluctantly. I had found that there were some pricy charcoal grills out there wow. I prayed that I would find something that would be an all around grill. The Lord lead me to this awesome bargain. I had previously had a steak that was cooked on a BGE and it was one of the best I have ever had... until I cooked one on my new Akorn!! You will love this grill when you get the temp control down that is. You will learn some patience but it is well worth it!!
