There are a lot of comments on putting the Akorn Jr. together. I'm the guy who will assemble something 180-degrees backwards every time. On this assembly, it took 30-minutes, and I didn't have to un-do anything! Instructions were clear and accurate. I don't doubt other's experiences with mis-aligned parts - some have photos - but this one went together perfectly with just a large-size phillips. The handle is the only tricky part because of the configuration of the part as you can see in the photos, but I noodled around and found the holes on both sides with a little extra work compared to the other parts. I can't say enough about the clarity and accuracy of the instructions. If you follow them, in about 30-minutes, you'll be lighting a fire.
The comments about off-gassing are addressed in the instructions: 1-Hour at 400, and I found that to be accurate. Best to not be around the thing for that hour - you can really smell the chemicals burning off, but after an hour, it settles right down and after 90-minutes (up to 600), I was cooking chicken and steak with zero particle flavor whatsoever.
The color fading comments - well, that's expected at 700-degrees! Yes, it fades to a slight burnt-orange hue (or maybe just less bright), but no big deal. It's a very pretty unit and fun to cook on.
I saw a small Green Egg at a hardware store ($600), and noticed it is much heavier. I don't know if Char-Griller engineered the Akorn Jr. to efficiency, or if there is a reason or advantage to the extra thickness and weight. I'm not going to pay $350 more to find out! This seems to hold heat just fine. When you lift the lid, you're going to lose temperature, but that's on any grill. That's grilling technique.
I'm very happy with the purchase and will have many great meals from this unit. I did notice the stone is out of stock (June 2017) at the company, don't know if that is a long-term thing or not. I ordered a 9" stone from Amazon, which will suffice fine for my needs. Also, the cover for the Jr. doesn't appear on the website, so either the garage or a good ol' trash bag will have to suffice. I'm in Colorado so we get more drizzle than downpours so I should be fine on protecting it. (Can't wait to fire this thing up during a good snowstorm! That will be FUN :)
Unfortunately, mine looks like it was poorly manufactured. As you can see in the photos, the top is warped and doesn't line up with the bottom of the grill. This causes the grill to not seal properly, and doesn't get nearly as hot as it should. Because it doesn't seal, it also doesn't retain heat as long as it should.
I reached out to Char-griller directly, but they were no help at all. I emailed them photos showing the manufacturing flaw and they suggested contacting Amazon. You get what you pay for, but I was disappointed that the company had such poor quality control and wouldn't stand by their products.

Assembly was easy, didn't even need to look at the directions! Took maybe 20 minutes.
Holds temp just as steady as the big ceramic, but responds to airflow adjustments quicker. High temps for searing, and low and slow are no problem with this type of BBQ. It's a solid unit, and weighs in a little over 30 lb.
I seasoned the cast iron grates with oil, and baked a batch of cornbread on it for its first run. It worked flawlessly.
I'd highly recommend this kamado to anyone looking for a smaller lightweight option to take camping.
After assembling the kamodo, I seasoned the grill at 400 degrees, all went well.
I then added some more fuel, and eased it up to 600 degrees. I noticed a bad chemical smell but thought it was manufacturing oil burn off, but then noticed the bottom ash collection tray had become damaged as per photo.
Disappointed to say the least.
I am hoping this is a unique defect in my bbq, I want to give them the benefit of doubt.
Totalmente recomendado y su relación con su precio es muy bueno, comparado con los demás de su tipo.
We bought an electric charcoal starter from Amazon which takes about 5 min to start the chips glowing a bit, then after removing it another 5 minutes to close the lid and heat the BBQ to 200 degrees with the vents wide open. Then you set the vents to whatever the instruction Char-griller book says for the meat you're cooking. My husband was concerned about the time it might take to heat up, but he loves the flavor and says it doesn't take much longer than gas or propane, so it's totally worth it!
We looked at YouTube videos where people devise some kind of drip tray, but it's totally unnecessary if you regulate the vents and don't crank it wide open. My husband loves to cook at 300 degrees and lower. He recommends the ThermoPro Remote food thermometer, also from Amazon. He can leave the food cooking and wander about without the worry of overcooking because it has a remote he carries around with him. For the $200 we spent it is an AWSOME deal. Just the right size for 2 to 4 people. If you're worried about feeding a crowd, why not buy 2 of these Acorn Jr's? It is still way cheaper than the big Kamados and very portable.
