    Goodbye Weber SmokeFire, hello MAK 1!

    Looking forward to my MAK 1 Star with Flame Zone, which is scheduled for delivery Monday. Coincidentally, this is also the day the SmokeFire will be picked up for return to Weber (very sad, indeed). As has been mentioned in other topics in this forum, there is not a lot of current information to learn about MAK’s (not that they’ve changed a whole bunch). I’m hoping to have the time to put a few video resources together. Happy grilling. 😊

        Excellent! I think you are going really enjoy how well the MAK performs especially with the Flamezone upgrade. I love my MAK 2 Star - same size and innards as the MAK 1 Star with the exception that the 2 Star has the roaming thermocouple, meaning the TC can be placed next to where and what you are cooking.

          Thanks! According to the following, the MAK 1 Star also has the roaming TC: https://makgrills.com/products/the-n...-have-arrived/. Given the similarities between the 1* & 2* what sold me on the 1 was the fact that it _didn’t_ have a stainless exterior. Looks great, but I’ve been a slave to my Weber Summit gasser to keep it sparkly. 😊 I added all the shelves as well. Can’t wait for it to arrive.

        I also have a MAK 1 Star. There's virtually no learning curve.... they are the embodiment of set it & forget it. Congrats!

          Cheers! I’ve been reading / watching everything out there which, I can tell by your avatar, included some of your videos. 👍🏼

          This man can cook and his family eats while he is trying to film. If he vouches for it, you know you have done well.

          Appreciated. Yeah, it’s an investment, but a valuable one.

          Now you can move on with pellet cooking. Congrats on that new toy in transit. I'm eager to hear your report as you put it through its paces. Enjoy!

          Checking in on how's it going with the new MAK. I'm considering getting a MAK 1.
