Harsh weather and your MAK Grill:
You may be wondering, "How does the MAK Grill handle rain, snow, and wind?"
The best place for your MAK grill is under cover and out of extreme weather, but if you absolutely have to grill, there’s no worries because the MAK pellet grill was built to handle any weather condition. Check out these pro MAK tips below for cooking in harsh weather:
1. The thickness of the steel used in the MAK grill bodies (16 gauge) helps the grill cook at consistent temperatures - no matter what the weather is like.
2. Use Oak, Hickory, or Mesquite pellets in cold weather. They burn hotter!
3. Always be plugged into a GROUNDED 110 outlet with a GFCI plug.
4. If it's windy - keep your casters locked on your MAK grill to keep it in place.
5. Keep your MAK grill & smoker out of puddles or standing water.
6. Keep your wood pellets dry! Soggy/wet pellets will ruin your MAK.
