Katakuri2001 Posted August 13, 2022 Share Posted August 13, 2022 (edited) I've had an Akorn for three or four years, and it serves as my grill, smoker, and pizza oven all in one. I haven't exactly been dissatisfied with the smoking side of things, but I do wonder if I'm missing anything. It's been fantastic for grilling and pizza work. My main smoking habits involve chucks, butts, and ribs. It seems to be working too efficiently for me to be getting much smoke from it. To stay below 250, I typically have to keep the top barely cracked. I do occasionally get some smoke, but it might taste cleaner. Although I don't find it to be bad, my kids occasionally complain about an ashy flavour. I want to know if I should invest in a ceramic "genuine" kamado. I'm hoping there will be more smoke and other advantages because it is less effective. Due to the akorn's low cost and my intention to use it, I initially purchased it. Although money isn't really an issue, if I do spend three to four times as much, I want to see some actual improvements. 192.168.100.1 Edited August 17, 2022 by Katakuri2001 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
