Default Finding a Used Char-Griller Akorn

I see Green Eggs, KJs, Primos and other assorted kamado cookers listed on CL all the time in my area but I am getting the feeling that I stand a better chance of stumbling across Jimmy Hoffa that I do of finding a used Char-Griller Akorn. Guess this is a pretty good indicator that people are happy with them. Are others seeing the same trend in your neck of the woods?

I am located on the south side of Metro Atlanta. If you were closer I would jump on it in a minute. There is probably a used Performer for sale once a week on CL here, but never an Akorn.

Akorns are still pretty new to the market. Give it time, they will show up.

You aren't getting anywhere near mine unless you come over for dinner!

Yeah, they're too new- only a year or two old. You probably won't find a used PBC for that matter (at the moment). Give it time.

I like the Akorn don't get me wrong, it's just I was on the fence about it and I really don't use it for anything other than steaks. Like I said I should have just bought a OTG or a Performer.

They are great cookers at a great price. You may have a hard time finding one.

Steaks are the main reason I am looking for one. That is also the reason I really don't want to spend that much for a new one just to cook steaks. I love my kettles and all the things I can do with them, my Performer in particular, but their weakness is not being able to reach the high temps of the kamados. But I hear ya.

I noticed one in my area on craigslist for the 1st time this week.

I've had mine for almost a year now. Since then I haven't touched my WSM, have only used my Performer for cold smoking, and maybe used my gasser 3-4 times for it's skillet burner or to oven cook some bacon.
