Like Bduza I watched the smokingdadbbq Utube clip and decided to fit an extra seal on the Akorn.
A flea bay nomex seal at $16 dollars add postage exchange difference to American dollars plus gst becomes $40. What the hell I’ll do it anyway.
Took three weeks which wasn’t bad from the states.
First cleaning. Bottom ash pan was a dream clean as a whistle. Main body was a different story. Plenty of baked on whatever that you normally except on a bbq had to go.
Worked my way thought the domestic cleaners with little results. Had to pull out the big guns. Wax and grease remover and 180 grit sandpaper. It’s baked enamel so it’s tough enough take the heavy duty clean and it came up clean.
Nomex seal was a little wide for the Akorn junior but it was easy to trim with some scissors. Easy to put on and the jobs done.
I’ll give it a test run tomorrow when I find some time
