Reviews and Ratings Of Grills, Smokers, Barbecue Pits, & Outdoor Ovens
This steel cooker was originally The Bubba Keg, then The Big Steel Keg until bought by Onward Manufacturing/Broil King in 2010 and renamed The Broil King Keg. This is not a fragile ceramic kamado, but an insulated steel kamado for less money than the ceramics... Read More
The new Char-Griller Kamado Akorn Grill, like its predecessor the King-Griller Kamado Kooker, is a double wall, insulated steel egg that is much lighter, in some ways more durable, and way less expensive than ceramic Kamados. Char-Griller is well known for grills that are cheap to make and cheap to buy. Until now, they gave us what we paid for... Read More

There are many good things to like about this grill and smoker, and the first is the craft with which it has been built. The heft is impressive. Just lift the lid... Read More
The 18" cooking grate gives you 254 square inches of cooking area with the grate set down into the belly of the beast, and you can add another grate increasing the cooking area to 460 square inches.
