I haven't posted here before, but I do browse through the posts regularly. I currently have a Chargriller Pro, I've done several mods to it and have had it for about 3 years. I'm thinking I might want to upgrade, but am not sure where to go from here. I don't want anything real expensive, probably nothing over $400. So what's the next level after the Chargriller?
I have the Kamado Kooker, WSM and Chargriller w/SFB. I prefer the Kamado Kooker for all types of cooking, low 'n slow, indirect grilling & high heat.
The only drawback is it's smaller cooking area. If I have a larger smoke, I'll either use the WSM or both the WSM and Kamado.
Michigander, I'm very surprised you use the Chargriller w/sfb over the Kamado for low and slow. The Kamado uses much, much less fuel and is much easier to maintain a steady temp. What makes you choose it over the Akorn?
