so for Xmas wife bought me an Akorm. I put it together a couple Sundays ago and figured id give it a whirl. I'd never even cooked with anything other than gas.. So it was an experiment lol. I ended up smoking 3 3.5 lb fatties, 2 pork loins, some pork chops, 14 sausages. not even a crumb left from the event.... I think I'm hooked!
