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 a 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.

This pellet smoker is amazing. It can do long BBQ cooks, grill, sear, and even act as an outdoor oven. The food is consistently good every time, my family loves it.

Spending this much money on a pellet smoker was hard at first, but once I started using my MAK I was blown away at the quality and ease of use. I got the upper half rack and the searing grate. I like that this smoker can grill or smoke, the food is amazing.

I've had a 2 Star for almost two and a half years and it has been hands down the easiest to use and most reliable cooker I've ever used.

Just by virtue of the fact that you can turn this on, set your temperature, and go back to watching TV gives me reason enough to recommend this to a... read full review

    I have now owned my 2 star for 2 years and have loved it since day 1. I live in S.California so mostly warm-hot weather and use my MAK at least every other week much more during summer smoking everything from cheese/nuts/spices to 15lb briskets. Now there have been some issues that arose once with my pellet boss and twice with temperature probes which is definitely an inconvenience, but I must say both BPS and MAK have some of the BEST customer service I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Being that the smoking/food/BBQ business is there niche, there's no run around with questions responses/fixes are to the point. Both my pellet boss and probes were replaced under warranty and mailed out quickly. I have seen reviews of people complaining about the searing aspects of the MAK as well as other pellet s, but imho this is a smoker, use it as one and you'll never go wrong, buy a grill to sear. I consistently buy different wood pellets every month 20-40#s ($18-35) keep them stored in 5 gallon homer buckets with lid and I always have fresh pellets on hand with what ever flavor combination I could want. The 2 star is one of my favorite investments and if you get into 12-24hr smoking sessions, but need to maintain a regular job and family not just a full ice chest :) you cannot go wrong with the MAK!! 1 more shout out to MAK and BPS customer service YOUR AWESOME!!!
