Weekend on the Akorn

I did four butts on Friday night and did two briskets, two fatties, one pastrami, and a rack of spares on Sunday. This Akorn may change my backyard BBQ'n life! Love that thing!

Were you ever able to figure out how much room was between the warming rack and the dome lid in the center? I can't find one locally to see for myself.

That's a lot of nice Q. That would feed me for a year, lol.

I'm not into smoking but I had to comment that every time someone in the forum posts about this grill/smoker I do a double take and misread it as Akron (you know that city in Ohio) where I went to nursing school. BTW - the food looks awesome! If you need to get rid of some of it, I can PM you my address!

I have not measured but I will this evening and report back. But, it is atleast 4". I used a 15" x 2" cake pan with sand in it as a difusser.

Thanks Y'all.

4"... that's not much room. Thanks. That's close enough.

I haven't had lunch yet. Now I'm really starving. That looks great. I need to go eat.
