Char-Griller Kamado Kooker (Akorn) Grill/Smoker Review Part 4

August 26, 2012 in General recipes

Check out our new forum at if you get a chance! Ok… so today I decided to use the Char-Griller Kamado, or Akorn as they would prefer it be called, to cook a 5.5 pound chicken. After the low and slow cook of the boston butt, I figured a nice mid-range temp cook would be a good follow-up for showing the capabilities of this cooker. Making a grill behave like a regular kitchen oven is very useful when you want to cook something like a chicken or turkey without burning the outside and under cooking the inside. No one likes under cooked chicken! I chose to work at the 375° temperature mark for this cook because in my past experience, that is about the minimum temperature you can cook a chicken and not have rubbery skin. The Kamado held up very well at this temp. I also, as shown in this video, sealed up some of the air leak areas with some high temp RTV Silicone. The additional air sealing significantly decreased the grill cool-down time from 4 hours 15 mins to about 2 hours 30 mins… Copyright Info All video in this production, including intro and exit clips was created by John Setzler / Man Cave Meals.
