This is my $74 Acorn Jr with ugly but FUNCTIONAL mods . Right now parked at 225 degrees with TipTop control . Love this thing . Yes it is ugly but boy can it cook!!!!! Extra Smokeware was here after upgrading to new style,had extra TipTop and plate hanger thing for using on my large Acorn . Also removed stock top vent, you can see it under jr on my Parrot perch / now Acorn Jr cart. It's all field expediency .Temp says about 180 ,it was on the way up . Got to 225 and parked itself there . My large Acorn is harder to control use that a lot in winter when I don't want to mess with the Egg and it's ceramics in the cold ,but now with Jr I have the new all season go to for those small cooks and usually I'm cooking for my self or me and girlfriend on weekend . Damn I love this thing . $74 you can't get hurt . Oh yeah even had old cover from big Acorn which i just replaced with new,closed hole on top with wire tie and it fits Jr and cart perfect . Total expense $74 Acorn Jr, $35 Acorn Jr deflector . That's it and my time,I'm retired that's free. Winner .
Here a tip if you own one of these or a large . Wrap aluminum foil around hooks for bottom clamps on ash tray and you will get a tighter fit between tray and main body . Did it on my large when I got it years ago and it was first thing I did with Jr. Good way to keep clean is with an ash vac,(you can find the for around $60 )don't bother taking off tray just stick hose in from top and you will never have issues with bottom gasket .
