    Just Got The New MAK 2 Star

    Similar to Goldenbear, I had my eye on the Weber Smokefire as my first pellet grill but had not pulled the trigger like he had. Have been a long time Weber disciple with various kettles, Genesis gas, WSM, etc. and still have a Performer Plus kettle with the slow & sear - my go-to for killer reverse-sear thick cut rib eyes.
    But after a lot of research and gnashing of teeth, I settled on the MAK 2 star general and she arrived yesterday. With a little help from my son-in-law, we had her together in about an hour and a half.
    Did the half hour burn-in/seasoning today so she's ready to go for an Easter weekend maiden voyage.
    I cannot say enough about how solid and well-built this thing is. It's a 304 stainless steel beast!
    Hope to load some pics of the first fruits this weekend.

    Love the hopper design and industrial grade auger.

    Side warmer box with it's own grease tray and grate. They say the box runs about 50% of whatever the main cooking chamber temp is.

    Welcome from a little south of you....SC! Much like you, I almost, but didn't, pull the trigger on the Smokefire. Got a Rec Tec instead...only an hour from me. Mac 2 is a great choice. Let us know how you like it....also, pics or it didn't happen

        Very Nice! That MAK 2 Star is a grill on my radar if my pellet grill croaks someday. Have fun.

              I must admit, I am a little jellous.
