    I can't take credit for it. I saw it in the MAK Facebook group and was real happy with how simple and good it was. Vary the seasoning and you can totally change the flavor profile to match whatever you want.

    Thanks and take the plunge. I'm a big fan of how easy and quick it is to use a pellet grill.

    Thanks and I did get the blank flamezone pan. I have a Napolean gasser, so I’ve never even installed the original flamezone pan.

    Thank you, Shipmate. Mr. Bones It was great to have Seabees on det with you. If you needed something fixed or built, it could be arranged with a few cases of beer or a couple of bottles of hooch. Always enjoyed working with Seabees.

    Thank you for your service as well.

    Nice idea with a rub on smoked cheese. Wish I had thought of that.

    There's an early gen 1 star in excellent condition for 600 bucks in PA for sale. Won't be a great griller like the newer ones, but should pump out excellent smoke for a pellet grill... or a certain someone has a very upgraded newer 2 star for a lot more half a days drive away

    glitchy I want it, I don't need it... and I'm saving up for the super smoker box that is insanely expensive... but ya never know, I can hide the blank flame zone purchase a little easier

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.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

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.

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’.

Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

3 burner gas grill

The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
