I just like cooking on both. The Kettle and the Akorn are both excellent grills and smokers. I actually like the Akorn better when I want to cook direct and indirect at the same time. I like the Kettle better when I am doing one or the other. I'm just happy that I have two grills that I enjoy using equally.
My next project will be the Weber Go Anywhere charcoal grill and mastering direct and indirect cooking on that :)
Measure Less. Cook More.
