Default New toy Akorn W/Pron

The wife and I were at Home Depot yesterday and saw this..



I have been wanting a new grill for awhile and had been thinking about a Weber Performer but decided to get the Akorn instead. So... it came home with us.


We put it together last night and I seasoned it up today. This thing is amazing, I know I'm going to be very happy with it.

Nice pics. For the price it seems those things are hard to beat. The new ones with the table are cool.

No numbers on the upper damper but there are numbers on the lower damper.

Thumbs up

This latest akorn looks to be a real winner.

I hope you get many years of great cooks out of it.

Enjoy

Trust me you will love it. I have had one for over a year and would not trade it. I have made a couple of modifications and added Grill Grates and it is a cooking machine.

Those look nice in the cart... My local HD doesn't have them yet. I wanted to see one but I guess I'll have to wait!

By chance have you contacted Chargriller in regards to the cover. I know sometimes they are a little slow to bring some things to retail that they have on stock at the corporate office.
