I sat back and waited to see how long before I would take the plunge for a ceramic grill. Then along came the Akorn. I went and looked at it in the store for my own evaluation....I read the reviews....heard of what some people had to do to them.
I decided to go ahead and get the Akorn. I am very happy with it. I did have one small crack near the lower door that I sealed. With that being said, I still love the Akorn. Last year took it on a camping trip. Put on some food at about 7:00PM...well after eating, we all got 'side-tracked' and later headed to bed.....next morning woke up about 7....grill was still holding at 250!
To me, it's not about the name or type of grill or smoker. It's the food that comes off of it. I continue to use my pellet grill and the Akorn....and both produce great BBQ.
