New software on the Pellet Boss® controller so that the grill will switch out of IGNITING when the cooking chamber temperature is 50 degrees hotter than when the grill is first turned on. This has proven to be a big advantage in getting the grills running in cold weather.
Grill owners can now turn individual components off or on for testing purposes. For example: if the igniter fails, instead of having to un-bolt the fan panel and unplug the igniter from the back of the control board, all you have to do now is get into the Maintenance screen and turn the igniter off.

Extended pellet hopper further from the bbq body to keep it cooler when cooking at hotter temperatures.

Quality American Craftsmanship. Make sure you know where the grill you're considering is manufactured! Being an American company is not something MAK takes lightly! MAK is very proud to support local companies and workers! Lets face it, most BBQ companies outsource to China to keep the unit cost down and most people buy these Chinese products for the same reason. You get what you pay for and usually you will buy a Chinese grill every couple of years because they don't last. In a disposable world we are happy to say our products are designed to last a lifetime with the right care. We offer a 3 year warranty with parts and service to back it up.
