abunda_amazon_reviews Love the grill - cooks great- bought for my husband for x-mas- 4 months later the bolts have melted off- the lid won’t stay on and we can’t close the lid to grill??? Need a contact # to get a replacement - this is unacceptable;;Reviewed in the United States on May 11, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Love the grill - cooks great- bought for my husband ...;;amanda callahan;;;I avoided charcoal grilling for 30yrs, switching to gas for convenience. The results were mediocre at best, but it was convenient. This all changed when we moved south in retirement. We wanted a new grill for the house and I decided to try charcoal now that there was a low-cost alternative to the Green Egg. At pretty much the price of a low-cost gas grill I could now purchase an "Egg" style grill. The Grill could probably be made with a more solid stand but I figure that's how they got the price down. I'm not moving it constantly and so far it is doing the job exceptionally well. I've heard some encounter issues with rust but so far this one is OK and my thinking is if it last the same 3yrs I would get from a cheap gas grill it will take me 9-10yrs to equal the expensive of the more expensive Eggs. So much for the economics involved with the decision. On to the grilling. This is the best damn grill I've ever used. the more I learn, the more I like it. The grill holds temperature, you need 250 for 5hrs to slow grill/smoke ribs just keep an eye on the vents and it stays where you want it. Sear a NY Strip, no problem to get the best damn steak you've ever had. Superbowl Party smoked wings crisp and juicy with plenty of room for mini franks. I'll admit to being unsure when I started using the Akorn. The little secret I discovered was YouTube. I searched ideas for the different types of foods, and usually, I biased my video choice to the somewhat larger chefs, figuring they knew what they were doing. The idea worked, every meal has been perfect: Pizza, slow cooked ribs, strip steaks, lamb loins, wings. I used to hate grilling now I can't get out there enough ADDENDUM 2/3/2019: The grill is now 2 yrs old, still dependable and I still love it. No further issue with rust, the problem was originally on the shelves and I sprayed them with Rustoleum and they've been fine since. I now picked up a Ceramic Pit Boss Grill for our other home but only because it was a Costco close-out at $400, otherwise I would have gotten another of these. IF YOU STILL HAVEN'T GOTTEN AN EGG THEN GO FOR IT, there's no looking back.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 14, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;This changed my whole attitude on grilling;;EJC;;;Love this grill. Having said that, I have by no means mastered it. This ain't your daddy's grill (throw-back to the Oldsmobile commercial if you're old enough to appreciate it). I'm thinking I may do a video to help people transition from a conventional grill to the Acorn. In a nutshell (pun intended) here is the primary difference between this and the grill you used before: 1) This grill is extremely well insulated. As a matter of DEMONSTRATION ONLY - when it's 425 degrees inside, I can put my hand on top of the grill without injury. Oh, it gets warm, but I can leave my old callous hands on it for some time before they feel like I'm going to get burned. (NOTE: the very top, the seam where the top half of the grill and the bottom meet and the bottom in general all get hot like a conventional grill and will burn you quickly.) 2) As a result of this great insulation there are two bi-products: a) you have to sneak up on the temperature that you want. After lighting the grill, if you blow through 225 degrees it will not be quick or easy to get the temperature back down to 225. Period. It can be done, but patience is required. b) This means the grill will carry its heat a long time. You can achieve very long cooks at 225 degree if that is what you want. In summary: you can use this grill like a conventional, get it hot and cook it fast, type grill or you can use it to slow cook your meal. For slow cooks patience is the first ingredient, followed by lump charcoal and a Rutland fire starter square. Be patient as you wait for the desired temp to be achieved. When you need to make adjustments, do so in small increments and then patiently wait (10 minutes) to note the affect on your temp. Did I mention that you need to exercise patience? Thank you for patiently reading this and hopefully it helps you in some small way appreciate your new grill. Edit 10/13/2016 - I continue to really enjoy the grill and thought I'd pass along a couple of other tips that have worked well for me. 1) When you want to cook "fast" like burgers perhaps, conventional, small charcoal seems to work well. Examples: For a quick burger or two, just use small charcoal chunks instead of large, LUMP charcoal. I just use the dregs from my lump charcoal bag, but I'm pretty sure conventional briquettes would work just as well. For lots of burgers, use a combination of small and lump charcoal to keep your heat going strong for a longer amount of time. 2) Don't forget to clean the bottom trap out. It's easy to overlook this chore and it really has an affect on how well the air can move through the unit.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 24, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;A short guide to using the Acorn;;Dale Edwards - San Antonio Valley - California;;;If you have never used a Kamado cooker before, this will change your life. I have been grilling and smoking for years. Usually about 3 times a week, more in the summer.I bought my first one in May and my second one in August. Why do I need two? I don't (don't tell my wife) but I thought it would be good for partys where I am doing a long low and slow smoke. I could use the other for side and other dishes that need done at a higher temp. This is rarely the case. You usually need to let the smoked meat rest for an hour or so for optimum results. This leaves plenty of time for veggies, fruits, burgers, and dogs after the smoke but before the meal. I really can't say what I like best about it. It is a better smoker than any offset barrel smoker I have owned. It is a better grill than any gasser or kettle I have ever used. And it gives you the added benefit of a convection oven. We cook pizza, cornbread, desserts, cobblers, etc. on ours. The possibilities are endless. There are better alternatives out there (Big Green Egg, Kamado Joe, Primo XL), but these are four and five times as expensive. And only moderately better.
