    Aftermarket waterproof cover for MAK Two-Star w/front Shelf?

    What aftermarket waterproof grill cover works and fits a MAK Two-Star with front Shelf?

    The Seattle/Tacoma area is experiencing heavy rain and yet another atmospheric river of moisture is forecast for the weekend. Some refer to it as a Pineapple Express. I thought that was something you smoked.

    The MAK cover isn’t up to the task. Has anyone found a specific manufacturer and model that is waterproof and fits the Two-Star with front shelf? I have the All Stainless but the size should be the same.

    I would consider a custom cover if anyone can recommend a company to work with.

    Thanks,

    Just spray it with camping waterproof spray and give it another chance.

      I can try that but I prefer something a bit more substantial. I've only had the grill and cover for around three months and while I love the 2-star, I am underwhelmed with the cover. After drying the cover during a short break in rain I noticed the thin, light material already has a small hole, likely caused by the sharp SS edges.

      I vacuumed out the pellets, dried the grill inside and out, dumped the grease tray that was filled with water, and put the cover back on. I may need to roll it around the house and store it in my garage. I never even think about it with the Lynx.

      The difference between the MAK cover and my Lynx cover is night and day. The Lynx is a heavy vinyl type cover with a felt type liner and zipper. The fit is the shape of the grill, not a tent that is too short, especially with the 5 inch casters I added.

      Thanks.

        FWIW the grease tray fills with water where I'm at regardless of the cover, condensation forms on the inside of the grill with our weather certain times of the year even without rain. Never had any issues with snagging thankfully. But I have the super smoker box cover on my SS MAK which my only disappointment is the lack of straps as I'm in a windy area.

        Thanks, I requested a quote from them and Alco custom covers. I had already requested a quote from a company and I can't remember who but the form looks the same as covers and all. Only Alco sent a confirmation they had received the request.

      Another vote for coversandall.com. I have four of these, two are standard, two are custom. Three are coming up on 5 years, the other is 3 years. They are wonderful!

      My dad has a few as well, custom built for what he has. You can’t go wrong!
