Default Burgers on the Akorn

I am doing somewhat of a "stay-cation" this week so it gives me more time to cook, and today it was burgers over the Akorn & fries (made by the girlfriend). Usually I just cook 'em over the fire but decided to use my diffuser to double up as a grease catcher & they came out great, they started out as 1/2lb burgers but as you can see they did shrink up a bit, not too greasy/juicy & not to dry. The example of the finished product below includes swiss cheese, pickles, and a couple dabs of sriracha sauce for a little kick.
Enjoy the photos, I'll enjoy the burger.

Looks good, I haven't seen nearly as many Akorn posts as I used to. I was wondering if the love for them had died down after owning them a while!

If you check JM's kamado site you find a lot of folks who still love em. I own one but prefer my UDS. They are a great grill/smoker, some deal with maintaining low temps, I just did some simple fixes and now I can control the temps easily, just like the UDS. I mostly use mine for searing burgers/steaks or extra smoking room when required.

Nice lookin burgers/fries

Nope, we're just too busy cooking on them.
