Kamados are super versatile. You can do a lot with them, and my little video series will hopefully highlight most of the basic stuff you can do on them. I still plan to do pizza and artisan bread with videos. I need some additional ideas of stuff to do that are out of the ordinary...

That's a good question... "Akorn" is not a brand as far as I can tell... it's what they want to title this product through Lowes distribution. They want it to be known as 'the akorn' from what I can tell...

I get the grates over 200F after cleaning them and before adding food to steralize them

Hey JM thanks a lot for the really insightful videos of this grill! Great attention to detail.

You made a great series of reviews and to me the only remaining issue is getting down to a 225F low and slow cook. Some folks can hold lower temps than others presumably due to manufacturing tolerances (lets ignore dome thermometer error for now). At some point would you be able to explain all your sealing mods, how you load the pit, and then demo another 225F low and slow cook?

Dude - thanks again for posting such methodical and informative reviews!

JM, hope you're getting kickbacks... this officially convinced me to go down to Lowe's and pick one up over the WSM. Of course, egg would be fantastic, but at 1/3 the price, this is impossible to pass up.

Echoing the above, I'd like to see a 225 sustained. Maybe use some good ol cheap kingsford charcoal, and see if that helps tame the beast? You're really ratcheting the airflow to almost nothing, and it's still looking like you can't get it down there.

Awesome stuff man. Keep those videos comin!

+1 on the low and slow. If it can do that easily, it's a winner.

I'll try to do 225° sometime soon. I typically don't cook that low though. I usually work in the 250° range. After playing with it so far, I don't doubt that I can make it hold 225°. On that initial cook I just lit up a little too much lump to get started. I have also sealed up the air vent a bit and between those two I believe I could get it there.

Have you cooked on it yet? I'm working on a 'list' of people who own this Kamado to see if there is enough interest for a 'fan club' of sorts... :)

Sorry if I missed it, but what size is the grate? CharGriller's site doesn't like my ipad.
