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

August 26, 2012 in General recipes

Check out our new forum at www.kamadoguru.com 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.

Cedar Plank Roasted Burgers

August 23, 2012 in General recipes

After watching a few videos from friends of making cedar-plank roasted hamburgers, I decided to give it a try myself. This was my first time cooking on cedar and I learned a few things, mainly that I need to cook at a little hotter temps. I roasted these burgers somewhere around 400-450 degrees. I probably need to ramp that temp up another 50 or 75 degrees next time around to produce a little more smoke and char on the cedar planks. The burgers were excellent though. I used some ground round that I found on sale and they tasted awesome! These were cooked on my Char-Griller Akorn Kamado… I purchased these cedar planks from Nature’s Choice Grilling Planks – www.grillingplanks.biz Copyright Info: All video in this production, including intro and exit clips was created by John Setzler / Man Cave Meals.

Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Mod: High Heat Searing

August 16, 2012 in General recipes

Today’s modification (not really a modification as much as an add-on) for my Char-Griller Kamado Akorn Grill / Smoker is an expanded metal basket to use on my diffuser rack for high heat searing. In this video, I cooked a couple of ribeye steaks to test and demonstrate this modification. I used a sheet of 12×24″ 1/2″ x 18g expanded metal from the hardware store to make this add-on. That sheet cost me about ten bux and a few minutes of time with my angle grinder and a cut-off wheel. I didn’t mention it in the video, but I also made a charcoal grate add-on out of the same expanded metal to keep small bits of lump charcoal from falling through into the ash pan during a cook.
