    Tempting but the reason for sale is hilarious...

    MAK 1 star. $950. Near Seattle... https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/a...352260778.html

    But why is he selling?

    "Lightly used MAK 1 Star General Pellet Grill and Smoker. My wife went vegan and it just doesn't get used anymore. Awesome smoker in excellent condition. New ones go for around 2200 if you can find one. "

    That is an ouch, but grilled veggies can be good. I dunno, I'd take it as a challenge to solve.

      Yeah, I guess they might have a gasser or something for that? At that price it's kind of tempting but I'm not looking to spend $1k on a pellet grill atm.

    That's not a terrible deal for someone in the area, though I can't tell how old it is and if it will accept the newer flamezone, but I think it will since it has the built in upper rack slot. The $2.2K price on the new ones includes wifi and the flamezone.

      If my wife went vegan shed be cooking her own meals. Nothing against vegan at all, dont get me wrong. When she was pregnant with out second kid we were both doing keto but she began to not be able to stomach the meals we typically cooked. Went right off fish, didnt like anything with a creamy base. I was cooking two different meals for a while before i gave up and just said ill eat whatever you are in the mood for.

          Joe, it does have the old controller, so that you’d probably upgrade. It looks in awesome shape though. If you are serious, MAK is cool and if you get serial number from seller and call, people at MAK will tell you about the grill and what you can upgrade on it. I’d want to be sure it’s the model with the bigger cooking area, the 1 stars were smaller originally.

          Just so you know, it's actually across the water in Port Townsend. But yeah, if it's as good a shape as it appears, it's a nice deal

          Maybe he should keep the MAK and get some plant based meat for her.

            Looks to be well taken care of for sure. Could be a good deal for someone.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


            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.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
