    In just 2 years MAK has actually made quite a few changes... The grease tray has been modified, the flame zone has been reinforced, the angle seems slightly more aggressive for grease runoff,, and the newest firmware seems to be producing VERY good smoke at up to 450 F and actually producing smoke over 550. It's not manufacturing oils either as this was an hour after doing the burn in which is only supposed to be 30 min.

    Oh and the user manual is GREATLY improved (and pimps out Amazing Ribs as a must use resource )

                  I just want to see you run both in series and sear at 1000 degrees Glad to see you finally got it. I know they’ve been way behind. Don’t put toys in the bottom of the cook chamber though like your PC.

                    lol, I had reached out to MAK before I pulled the trigger so there's a chance I got in line before I put the order in I could run them in series I suppose, but I'll let the 3 star owners play that game

                  Fun at your house this weekend...for sure!

                    Wow. Nice new toy. I bet the older MAK is envious of its shiny newly-upgraded brother who will now get all the love.

                    Enjoy your cooks on that new baby.

                      well, the other one is moving to the garage so I can fully clean it and get it properly listed for sale, so it won't have to be envious too long

                      Totally jealous! I think my 3 year old MAK 2 Star is giving me the stink eye as I look at your new rig - gonna have to give it more love. BTW, I see you did not get the front shelf. No that useful for you?

                        I never found the need for one, the hopper lid and the warming box lid have plenty of real estate. Though now with all these extra shelves to juggle I may build a steel tabletop onto my deck rail.

                      Two of them. Now I be Jealous.

                        one is listed in the for sale section... so hopefully I'll only have 2 for a little while longer. Gotta get 'er cleaned up and posted on marketplace or something soon I guess too.

                    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.

                    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 PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
