My thermometer is consistently- inconsistent..but really the only disappointing thing about this cooker. We still love this thing.

I've wondered if it would be more accurate to replace the thermometer with one that has a 4" stem.

Thumbs up Pizza!

The kids and I made pizzas on Sunday. This is always a fun meal for them as they get to make them just the way they want. I've been using a pizza stone I purchased from Meijer, it's works great!

Looks like the gnome is eyeballing one for himself.

He's always checking to see what's coming off the grill.

My son (3.5 years old) is the one I have to watch when there's beer around!

Back to the grill - I love this thing! I try to do one cook a week. Sometimes it's hot for pizza or steaks and other times it's low and slow for pork butt, brisket or ribs.

Default The Verdict Is In

I love this thing! I took my time putting it together and used high temp gasket sealer on all the appropriate areas, grabbed 20 lbs of lump and went smokin. No complaints whatsoever.

If you're thinking about pulling the trigger and picking up an Akorn, I'd highly recommend it.

I am now a member of this club. I went and bought one today as a Father's Day present to myself. Easy to put together and I have it seasoning right now.

Mine is right at 20 degrees lower than my digital.

Can you give some details? What size hole did you drill? what length and size nipple to use?

I used a 1" hole saw. The pipe was 3/4" close nipple and screws right into the hole.

I'm glad this thread has had some longevity. I think the Akorn is now established as a formidable grill for the price. :)

Just picked one up yesterday at GM for $249. I had checked it out a few times over the last couple of months and due to the fantastic job by JM with his reviews I could not wait any longer. A personal thanks to JM!!
