Pellet burning Rocket for Akorn Kamado

  • I found this interesting Video

    This bloke has used a Rocket Stove to run his Akorn on Pellets.

    Simple design, seems to work well!

  • it is very interesting, but I kind of have to ask why? (Genuine question, am I missing something)


    Apart from much quicker temp changes, it seems like a fair bit of faffing around to do something a komado can already do very well, and I wonder if it can do low and slow?


    Interested to hear others thoughts.

  • Cheaper than Charcoal

    I've not done the calcs, so happy to be corrected, but I don't find pellets cheap. I also mix charcoal with beads and robo turds. In fact the bao bun cook I just posted up in whatcha cooking thread had no charcoal, just turds and beads, and that almost ran away from me (good luck, not good management).

  • The pellets would have more moisture and less ash. Outside of that, I really got nothing for you. I was also thinking a price issue, but I have no info for that analysis.


    Some folks just love to fabricate.

  • I love that it's free of electronics. It could do with a more practical/repeatable way to adjust the temp. I also wonder if it'd work with as well with wood chips?
