The Akorn Kamado Kooker is one of the most versale charcoal grills on the market. Few grills can reach a searing temperature of 700 F and maintain consistent temperatures from 200 to 700 F. This wide range allows the Akorn to cook a wide variety of foods: steaks, fish, chicken, ribs, brisket, bus, pizza, bread and even cookies. The innovate design, with Mulled Patents Pending, utilizes double walled steel with insulation that creates a lighter weight alternate to the heavy and fragile ceramic kamados. 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 is 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
  • Locking caster secures grill from moving
  • Folding metal side shelves add a working surface, yet keep the grill footprint small for easy storage
  • Dual adjustable dampers allow for precise air adjustment required for dialing in and maintaining specific temperatures
  • Cast iron cooking grates enhance flavors and heat evenly; will hold up to 23 burgers
  • Durable and heat resistant porcelain coated interior
  • Assembly required
  • Protect your investment with a grill cover (sold separately)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Poor mans BGE I assume anyone looking at this grill has gone to look at a BGE but got bothered with the price. That being said the price difference is about half as you know. I had a lot of hesitation purchasing this grill due to my family members having the BGE and me not being one to want "the next best thing." I researched videos on YouTube and reviews on the Internet and everything came back positive so I figured what do I have to loose. I honestly could not be more happy with this grill. While it is not fully ceramic it does a fantastic job of thoroughly cooking large pieces of meat as well as vegetables. This grill is a fantastic alternative if you do not want to shell out all the money for the BGE, but I must emphasize that the heat deflector plate as well as BGE branded charcoal are necessary. I have not found any other charcoal to be as adequate as the namebrand BGE stuff. Just watch a couple videos and learn how to use it. December 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Smoker/grill Easy to use as a smoker and even easier to use as a grill. I have had mine for a couple years now and it has been great for everything. When I replace it I will keep it inside the garage though. The only negative I have is that the grate and extra shelf rusted even being covered with the correct cover. I have cooked a 15 pound brisket and 8 pound but at the same time using the extra shelf without problems I just used a piece of stainless steel to brace the other end. I will get another one but either build a covered area or keep it in the garage. I have NOT been able to locate replacement parts for it. April 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I really love this cooker. The product was easy to put together, seems to be of good quality for the price and it cooks like a charm. Holds temperature extremely and is very fuel efficient. With the smoking stone I was able to cook a pork butt at 250 for 10hrs using only 3-4 lbs of charcoal and once I had the temperature dialed in at 250 it never moved. It compares very favorably to the large Big Green Egg at a 1/3rd of the price and weight. October 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this grill!! This is my first Kamado Kooker and i have to say that I absolutely love this grill. It was delivered on time and amazingly enough, was extremely easy to assemble. Food cooks extremely fast on this grill because of how hot it can get inside the grill and the meat is tender. At first I tried to use regular charcoal, but like the manual recommends, lump coal is much better. If you want tender meats cooked fast then this is the grill for you. September 18, 2014
