Product Overview

  • Double walled steel w/ insulation retains heat needing less fuel
  • Akorn is the only Kamado style grill with an easy dump ash pan
  • Maintains a consistent temperature for extended periods
The Akorn Kamado Kooker Charcoal Grill in Brown is one of the most versatile grills on the market. Few charcoal grills can reach a searing temperature of 700 degrees F and maintain consistent temperatures from 200 degrees to 700 degrees F for lengthy periods. This wide range allows the Akorn to cook a wide variety of foods, including steaks, fish, chicken, ribs, brisket, brats, pizza, bread and even cookies. The innovate design utilizes double-walled steel with insulation that creates a lighter-weight alternative to heavy and fragile ceramic Kamados. In order to generate heat, air must be flowing through the grill and around the coals. But airflow causes food to dry out. With the Akorn insulated design, it retains heat better, requiring less heat and less airflow. Therefore, insulated heat produces juicier meat.
  • Offers 306 sq. in. of primary cooking space and a 165 sq. in. removable 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 offers lasting durability
  • Also available in red and graphite
  • Requires assembly
  • Protect your investment with a grill cover (model 6755, sold separately)

After reading review of maintaining a low temp. Has manufactor corrected this problem after reviewing so many complaints about the same thing.

Asked by: PTAYLOR
Maintaining low temps is not a manufacturing problem, it is a user problem. You have to learn how to build a proper fire mound of coals and regulate air flow. Experience is the best teacher. Use of real lump coal works best since it burns longer and hotter. Look online for videos on how to build and regulate your fire in a kamado grill and it will be of great help. Then just a little practice and patience. I really enjoy mine.

Akorn Kamado Kooker Charcoal Grill in Brown is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 81.

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!

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!!

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 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy this product again I usually grill on the weeks ends. I always use a regular grill but decided to try something new I was looking for a smoke but when I saw the komado I could the the best of both styles so the more I read about it the more I was ready to jump onboard I been using the komado for a month and it's been a great success with the family. It's very easy to use and the komado has encouraged me to try grilling new things I'm very excited to try grilling and smoking new things.

No problems with air leaks that has been reported from models sold several years ago. Also bought the smoking stone and adjustable grate - very flexible and parts inexpensive parts.

I was able to smoke a 5 lb loin roast at a steady temp for 3 hours. The directions given in the manual about setting the dampers was spot on. Very pleased. I'm a complete novice to slow cooking, so this easy setup and operation was appreciated.

Assembly took about an hour, but, wasn’t difficult. Several of the bolts came out of the package and were “hidden” in the ash pan walls. I thought I was going to have to go buy some more. All were there.

Food is so much tastier on the Akorn than my propane grill. Bought a Akorn cover which did not protect unit from rain. Sprayed "scotch guard" type water repellent on the cover and the grill now stays dry during rain.
