Questions & Answers

I've read it can be difficult to keep the temperature low (200-225). Has anyone had success?

Asked by: Phil
Had one for 2 years, short answer is yes, it is hard to maintain 225 for extended cook. If people say they have, and done so with a temp controller, then they are chumps for even answering your question. It can be challenging to maintain 225 for extended smoke (say overnight) even with an airtight model, but this one has leaks, which only adds to temp control issues. If you buy this, and want low/slow overnight, a temp controller is the only way you will get there.The unit has air leaks

Is this a ceramic grill?

Asked by: ATL747
Not ceramic. But my boss has this and BGE, he swears Akorn is as good or better in maintaining heat and moisture. I made the juiciest spatchcocked chicken the other day.

Are the 2 Smaller front locking wheels included in this. I see in them in the 360 degree view and some photos here on HD website. But in the manual it shows 2 post legs for the front. I also have seen this model on youtube with the 2 small front locking wheel casters. Are they included as pictured?
Asked by: JQ
Yes, they are.

Customer Reviews

AKORN Kamado Kooker 20 in. Charcoal Grill in Grey with Cart is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 375.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read all the reviews, on this site and others, and almost didn't buy this grill. What you have ... I read all the reviews, on this site and others, and almost didn't buy this grill. What you have to look at is the percentages of complaints against good reviews. Those with complaints often voice their opinion, those satisfied, not so much. The percentage of complaints against good reviews is pretty low for this grill. With manufacturing and shipping, things are always bound to go wrong. But when my local Home Depot dropped the price to make way for plastic Christmas trees and mechanical Santa's, it got my attention. First it was $240, when they dropped it to $210, the force was too strong and I took it home. Assembly is not as difficult as most describe. What you have to watch for is the direction of the side supports/bars and locations of screws. otherwise you'll have to take those apart once or twice to get it right (like I did.) I guess I was one of the lucky ones, but I bought it out of the store, eliminating a lot of the bent and missing pieces I hear about. All the parts were there, and the rivets in the firebox showed little signs of the chipping I hear about. I did find the lid a little difficult to align perfectly with the bottom half. The one I bought indeed came with the warmer rack. I bought the cover separate, which appears pretty heavy duty and should last a couple seasons. The ash box has a pretty tight seal, I hear complaints of it dropping or the clips rusting out. I plan to keep the exposed parts treated with WD-40 and this shouldn't happen. If the bottom seal starts to loosen (as I expect it will) it looks like I can roll the clips a little tighter to keep it sealed up. I seasoned the grill with a 3 hour burn of regular briquets (sue me) and did my first cook with a combo of briquets and lump charcoal. Lump charcoal burns hotter, less ash, briquets longer, more ash, some claim to taste a difference but meh . . . maybe. I season with hickory chips and when using briquets burn them until they are white so all the additives burn out, so it all works out. After the flames died down I closed it up with both dampers open it shot up to 650 in a matter of minutes! I closed up both dampers and there was almost zero smoke leakage. As expected the temp started to come down. Being new with the Kamado, by the time it got to my target temp of 400 degrees I had almost put out the coals! :-D The temperature control is awesome, not something I'm used to. This is a whole different type of grilling, and it's going to take some getting used to. It comes with a grill tool so you can remove the center grill and drop in more lump or wood chips while cooking, which is what I do. When we're done cooking we close up both dampers and it puts the coals out, ready to use for next time. We're on our third cook and getting the feel of how it works . . . and it is awesome. Pros: Awesome temp control, mine seals up as advertised with hardly and leakage when closed down, manufacture is pretty good for the price. Cons: I really don't like the plastic table top much, and the tool hangers on it are HUGE. They are molded into the end of the top. I had to leather-strap my utensils to use them. At this price, it really should include the cover, but it is what it is.

Only negative is that it takes a bit of trial and error to accurately judge how much lump charcoal (recommended and more expensive than charcoal briquets) to use to achieve & maintain temps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great grill This grill took me 1hr 1/2 to put unpack and put together and i suck at putting stuff together. This is not my first Akorn but it is my first full size one. Its a great grill. It is all metal and no plastic. The wheels are rubber. I ordered this grill about 1030 at night on the 25th and got it at my house at 1037 am on the 27th with free shipping. Home depot is the place to order it. I’m very happy.
