            Akorn Char Griller Quality
            Absolutely love this product, its fuel efficient , reaches and maintains temperature and food taste great. One thing I dont like is its material quality. I have had mine for roughly 2 years now, I keep it clean, under roof and covered most of the time. The paint on the side tales rust, the ash pan rod rusted through to the point it brakes and can no longer hold the ash pan when unclipped. The wheel holders and bottom belly plate rusts . Great product for price but will not last long.

              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve had this grill for years. Love it. I have cooked holiday meals and smoked meats on it and it works fabulously.

                  This grill was a dream to assemble. Hardware was already sorted and directions were extremely easy to follow. It is beautiful and cooks great! I highly recommend!

                  Buyer beware
                  Cooks great food but you can see in the pictures, hard to maintain and after my greatest attempt, it still turned out the way it has. I kept it clean, seasoned, covered with the akorn cover, and stored in garage, but all that effort didn't matter. I dont even use it anymore cause the grates. So beware if you're thinking about making the purchase.

                    Dang, this is a good cooker for the money. Was born and raised on big offset smokers in small town Texas, but have since became a city slicker up north and needed to teach these north east people what smoked meats are all about. Even though its not ceramic, this bad boy can handle the heat for a good while, and did not see any smoke leaking. Really enjoy the simple ash catchin and cleanup was a breeze. Good stuff

                      I've cooked for many years and was chef and kitchen manager for local restaurants in Pierce County. while I know there are "Ceramic" kamado grills out there that cost $1,000 to upwards of over $2000... I can you that this Akorn can give you the same results. You can achieve upwards of 800 degrees (if you needed to) on this. I've done 6 hour low & slow 3-step ribs on this with ease, I've smoked and just cooked turkeys on this grill as well as beer-can chicken, brisket and other products. This grill can easily maintain a steady temp over night or for VERY long periods of time. Just as well, you can grill hamburgers, steak and other grilling products. I own several grills and have been BBQing all of my life and this is by far my favorite. Regardless of if you've been cooking for 40 years or just starting.... this grill will exceed your expectations with out spending thousands of dollars. I'd easily put my product off of this grill up against any product coming off of an ceramic grill. Ceramic grills are good grills.. but they're expensive and if they ever fall, they break, crack or shatter. (learning to maintain temperatures on a kamado grill takes time, practice and patience....watch videos. dont give up)

                      Great gateway kamado grill
                      This is a great grill to try out cooking with a kamado grill. I spent a lot of time researching kamado grills before I bought this one. I knew this one is known for two things: it uses very little charcoal and it WILL rust out in four or five years. I have had mine for six. I do love this grill in spite of bad gaskets and rust. I just run it at a hotter temp than my weber kettle and roast potatoes and veggies on it. This grill has not only changed how I grill, it has changed what I am willing to grill. I translated what I learned with the Akorn to my Weber kettles. I can now maintain accurately on my kettles just like my electric oven. I now have to decide if I am going to repair my Akorn or buy another Slow'n'Sear for my other Weber kettle. If I don't repair the Akorn I will turn the cart into a nice grilling table. Overall this is a good way to find out if a kamado grill is for you without spending over $1,000 on a grill

                        Great Kamado for the price!
                        I’ve read people’s complaints about this grill and if you’re reading mine, disregard all of theirs. It’s a budget friendly Kamado (poor man Green Egg or Kamado Joe). Set your expectations straight people. Does the grill come banged up, Yes. Does the grill leak smoke a little, Yes. Is the temperature control finicky, I guess. Can you cook amazing food on there, YES! Buy a digital thermometer that you can attach to the grill grate to regulating the temp and your set! Use better charcoal. Use drip pans to catch grease. Clean your grill. Have FUN! I LOVE THIS THING! I’m new to this style of charcoal smoking and loving every second. I’ve spent many hours cooking on this grill and it’s some of the best BBQ I’ve ever cooked.
