How 'bout when yer jus cookin 1 or 2 steaks or 1 or 2 burgers, or just 1 rack of ribs or just 1 tri tip or anytime you cook small. The Akorn is so great and fuel efficient for those times. I don't even have any need for big ol' UDS but I love my Akorn and use 2-3 times a week.

one of the coolest mods I've done to my Akorn is buy a 7.5 quart stainless steel spaghetti strainer from Bed Bath and Beyond. It sits on the coal grate with about 3/4 chimeny of glowing lump and gives fantastic cooking area on the CI grate and an off area for milder temp. Tonight was a 1.5" t-bone, andouille sausage and garlic butter Brussels sprouts. The Akorn is quite versatile. Tomorrow I can sift the coals or just chunk them by lifting the stainless strainer by its handles.

I'll say this.....

I've had my UDS for years now, and I love it.
This past fall, I started to store (and use) a Big Steel Keg and LBGE for a friend.
I still love my UDS, but I've used the two kamado style cookers a LOT more than it in recent months. I'll be using the UDS this weekend because I need to cook 8 butts, but if it weren't for the sheer quantity, I'd find a way to use the two kamado cookers.

If it were me, I would NOT be getting rid of your Akorn at ALL.

I never made pizza on a grill until last Saturday, OMG! It tasted like it came right out of a wood burning oven at a real pizzeria!
