The Akorn Jr. Kamado Kooker is a grill and smoker made by Char-Griller.  It  can sear meat at high heat or barbecue at low temperatures for slow and low smoking.

Its also afforable, roughly 1/3 the price of larger ceramic grills like the big green egg. It can easily  maintain cooking temperatures ranging from 200-700 degrees Fahrenheit using dampers to regulate air flow into and out of the grill. Its superlight, less than 40 pounds with convenient handles for portability and grilling everywhere – perfect for camping, tailgating, or RVing

Top questions asked about Akorn Jr. Kamado Kooker Charcoal Grill (edited from Amazon)

Question: Is it a smoker?

Answer:You can purchase a smoking stone and cover for the Jr. from Char-Griller. Call them for prices as these items are not listed on their web site.
Question: How many hours will it cook with a full load of briquets assuming a 200 degree for smoking?
Answer:  I have done pork butts multiple times at 250 for 8-10 hours and always have at least halve the fuel left. So I assume it would make 18 hours at 225.
