    MAK 2 Star General with tons of extras!

    I have a MAK 2 Star in the western suburbs of Chicago looking for a new home where someone will love her. Its about a year old and in great shape. It was my first smoker and I'm looking to move on to a different challenge. Everything you read is true... its a great smoker.

    It has TONS of extras:
    -WiFi contoller
    -Full upper rack
    -Two half upper racks (new never used)
    -Big Poppa grill mat
    -Solid grease tray (new never used) great if you're just smoking. Easy to clean.
    -Flame zone tray and covers
    -6" front shelf
    -rib rack
    -3 probes
    -my custom DIY tools for cleaning (not as cool as it sounds, but they're helpful!)

    Around $3500 if you ordered new and that's before you pay for shipping. She's out the door for $2700... or make me an offer!

    Welcome to The Pit alecksjayscubs! We wish you the best of luck selling your machine. Thanks for the support and we're sure it will be a great return of your investment. Maybe you'll even win your next "different challenge" in our monthly Gold Medal Giveaways!

    We look forward to hearing more form you!


      Did you sell your Mak?


        Nope, still available. PM me if you're interested!




            Is this still for sale?


              Sorry, I haven't been on the site in awhile! The MAK is still available AND I'M LOOKING TO DEAL! Here are some pics...

                WOW. Are those pics of how it currently looks, or how it looked brand new? My Mak 2 is no where NEAR that clean looking.


                  Those are pics of it now! I found an awesome cleaner called Challenger PC-737. http://www.challengercleaner.com
                  It's only available in a few states now but I bet if you call them you could get some.
                  Took the MAK to the backyard and went to town. Just cover up the igniter with a plastic bag! That's what's so great about the MAK being high quality 304 stainless... You can hose the thing off and not worry.

                    Nice! That's some good cleaner. My prob is I can't take my Mak to the backyard. It's on a second story deck. Maybe I could walk it through the house to the front and hose it off in the driveway. Hmmmmm


                      If you do get it just make sure you wear gloves. I noticed my fingernails cracked easily after I used it without. Not sure what that means but wear gloves. And it cleaned so well I really didn't care!

                        it was the caustic in the clearer. In this case, Potassium Hydroxide or Casustic Potash. Caustic attacks anything organic and breaks it down. Thats why they use it to clean stainless in dairy plants, slaughter houses or any food grade area. That stuff can be nasty in heavier cleaners.

                      Asked in your other thread and PM'd with no response, but I figure I'd try one last time before I take advantage of another deal...

                      Is this offer still available?


                        Cactus I've reached out to him via email. Hopefully we hear back soon.


                          Hi guys. Sorry, I haven't checked in to the pit awhile and I can't seem to get email notifications when I get pm'd. The MAK has been sold. My apologies for not following up on this post.


                            No worries and thanks for the update. I'll close the thread.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
