There are a lot of nifty features this has. I really like the way you can lift the center of the grilling grate out to stir or add more charcoal. And the swivel warming grate is cool, too. And one youtuber (and I'm sure others) added a charcoal grate to those brackets right below the Akorn's grate to bring the heat up higher.
It seems the main beef with it is that greasy foods can run down the side due to the shape and soak the gasket on the ash trap. Plus things aren't airtight down in that area, but that seems like something that can be adapted to or worked around.
I like this thing. I'm just not sure I need it
Maybe if I didn't already have a vert smoker...
How much room is between the warming rack and the dome lid in the center?
