Finally found a used Akron on CL
It official. I am part of the kamado club. After months of searching, thanks to a "heads-up" from one of our fellow BBQ Brethren, I finally was able to find a used Char-Griller Akron on CL. Picked it up a couple of hours ago and already have it cleaned up and doing a test burn. It was dropped while moving by the original owner and has a dent where the fastener is located under the handle. Assessing during the test burn how much effect it will have on being able do seal and maintain temps for smoking. I bought it primarily for direct high heat grilling and baking, but would like to use it for an occasional low and slow cook.
Am going back and reviewing all the JMSetzler videos to flatten the learning curve as much as possible.
So far I am a pretty happy camper.
