    2018 MAK 2-Star for sale

    2018 2-Star with the following
    Upgraded to 2020+ version of the pellet boss w/K-Probe ports, has the firmware update to grill at 600+ degrees ($300)
    1 MAK K-Probe ($75)
    Upgraded to 2020+ version rain guard between hopper and main chamber (stops a situational leak some folks had)
    Front door ($200)
    Full Size Grate ($100)
    3/4 Size Grate ($85)
    MAK WiFi Module ($300)
    Grill Cover, in perfect shape other than slight fading on the red portions of the MAK emblem ($100)

    Asking $2300 or reasonable offer, for pick up roughly an hour south of Raleigh NC or may be willing to meet up near Raleigh or Fayetteville.

    MAK does sell the rack rail upgrade to add the 2 additional grate racks that the current models have as well as a conversion kit for a roaming thermocouple. Both upgrades will fit this model and then you have a 2021 spec 2 Star with a bunch of goodies for the same price as a 2021 bare bones 1 Star.

    What's wrong with it? Nothing, I am just purchasing the 100% stainless version

    Howdy "It's",

    You may recognize me from the other threads about a used MAK. Again, thanks for the help.

    BTW, what ISN"T stainless on the 2-star?

    PS - How much to deliver to Long Island, NY? (LOL)

      On the standard 2 Star, the pellet hopper and warming box bodies are aluminized steel with stainless lids, and the cart is entirely aluminized steel (but the optional door is full stainless).

      NY is quite a bit further than I would be willing to drive though

      Deliver it, hang out and drink beers while me make (and then) eat something LOL

    Sucker! Totally get it 👊🏻🤷🏻‍♂️😜


      Did a quick clean but we had a storm rolling in. This is what 30 minutes of cleaning gets you. With some elbow grease you can get everything back to pure shiny steel except the flamezone, heat deflector, and firepot.

      I couldn't get a good interior shot because of the thunderstorm.

        What cleaning product did you use? That looks spectacular. Mine gets a lot of carbon buildup around the hood and vents, so wondering what you used.

          ItsAllGoneToTheDogs I can't find that product unless it's by the case, by either name. Amazon, Home Depot, Walmart etc all seem to be out of it. I ordered some Goo Gone Grill & Grate cleaner, I hope it works as well. I need to shine up my Grilla Silverbac, it's getting too much brown on its nice shiny silver.

          GolfGeezer Huskee I haven't tried this on the MAK yet, nor compared to Mr. Muscle, but Barkeepers Friend powder and the gentler blue Scotch Brite sponges used to work wonders on my Memphis' SS. Just sprinkle powder on the grill, then start working it with a damp sponge. I found it a lot more effective than liquid barkeepers. I'll be looking for Breakup/Mr. Muscle though too. Then I polished with the Weiman SS wipes after all rinsed and clean. Another option if you cannot find Mr. Muscle.

        Got the go ahead from my wife to buy the all stainless 2-star BEFORE I even sell this one (I don't know what she was drinking). Anyway this is no longer a possibility, this 2-star is 100% on the market. But I'm in no rush either.

        So serious reasonable offers will be considered.
