New Akorn Model with Table (pics)
 
Saw this at Home Depot today when I was there buying some paint. I don't remember a table model last year and am guessing it is new for 2013. Looks pretty cool.

It was $329, which seems like a pretty good deal for anyone looking to get something like this.

You are getting more work area for $30 over the model from last year.

Good deal. I also heard this is triple insulated vs double insulated from previous models.

They might also be redoing last years Lowe's model as a triple layer though.

Great! Hope they just drive down the price of the BGE's! Awesome.

glad to see they removed the giant char-griller emblem from the center cast iron. that drives me crazy on my Akorn from 2012.

Forgive the gunk on the grill.

I shut it down as soon as brought in last night's ribs and ABTs.

A good cleaning will be done tonight when I heat it up for the burgers my son requested.

Wonder if plain-Jane replacement inserts will be available via Chargriller.

I had the opportunity so bought one of the old models just a couple weeks ago. Table space is always appreciated but overall I'm not having regret pangs, I like my black model just fine. :)

Non logo replacements are available, but make sure C Grill customer service knows exactly what you want. They have sent me the wrong parts 3 different times.

That logo can be cut off between the grates with a grinding wheel.

IF true, then that's a double edge sword type of thing IMO. It makes keeping temps from creeping up in low n slow cooks tricky. It would take even longer for temps to come down if you overshoot target temp.

I believe I paid around ten bucks for the grate insert without the logo about three months ago I also ordered the char Griller maverick et 732 at the same time since shipping is around 12 bucks.
That akorn sure looks nice with that table I wonder if its already sealed around the bottom vent .
