Igniter failures are a thing of the past with FlashFire™ ignition! MAK has eliminated the traditional “heater cartridge” and replaced it with an ignition system that no other pellet grill has.
Unlike steel cartridge heaters, FlashFire™ igniters are impervious to moisture and corrosion, which means years, if not decades, of trouble free operation. FlashFire™ igniters are rated for 90,000 on/off cycles. Our new FlashFire™ ignition gets to over two thousand degrees Fahrenheit. The scorching hot air almost instantly lights the pellets in the firepot. A complete fire is established so quickly that the grill will be at cooking temperatures faster than any other pellet grill.
FlashFire™ ignition technology is proof of our commitment to constantly bring new solutions to our pellet grills.
The Pellet Boss
No other pellet grill has anything like the PELLET BOSS® digital control system.. This innovative control is fed information from the thermocouple inside the grill to manage both fuel and fan speeds, resulting in extremely accurate control of the grill's cooking temperature.
Set your desired cooking temperature in 5 degreee increments and use up to three meat/temperature probes. When your food reaches the programmed probe temperature, an audible alert lets you know that the food is done. For more advanced cooking, you can create custom cooking programs which change the grill temperature using pre-set meat probe temperatures or time. The Pellet Boss® also lets you set elapsed time or countdown timers with audible alerts. It is simply the most advanced pellet controller in the world creating an amazing grilling experience!
The Pellet Boss® is a standard feature on all of our grills. It's an exclusive you will only find on a MAK PELLET GRILL.
Direct Heat FlameZone™
Now, get the best of both worlds in one grill! Super sear your favorite type of meat and achieve wonderful steakhouse flavor and appearance. With over 400 square inches of direct cooking surface, you get faster cooking, searing, and browning. When you want to cook low n’ slow, swap out the FlameZone™ pan with the blank grease pan for barbecuing, baking, roasting or smoking.
Large Cooking Area
The Two Star General boasts a 14 inch tall, 429 square inch cooking area. It’s the perfect size for cooking large items like turkeys and beer-can chicken. Add the optional upper grill grate and you double the amount of cooking space. Whether cooking for the family or half the neighborhood, the 2 STAR GENERAL lets you feed them all with ease.
MAK GRILLS' dual function Warmer/Smoker Box can be used to keep cooked foods at a safe serving temperature between 170-180 degrees. On the Smoke setting, you can use it to Cold Smoke fish, nuts, cheese and brined meats at 70-80 degrees.
Quick-Change Pellet Dump Door
MAK is the ONLY pellet grill manufacturer to offer this unique feature. When you want to change barbecue pellet varieties, just open the dump door at the bottom of the pellet hopper. Your hopper will empty in seconds so that you can add a new variety of pellets with minimal effort.
Ash Clean-out Door
No need to get out the shop vacuum, when you can just open the ash clean-out door and sweep out pellet ash and debris. The clean-out door slides open from the outside of the grill. Another easy cleaning feature of the MAK TWO STAR GRILL.
Rolled Lid Design
The Two Star’s perfectly engineered rolled lid design allows it to be opened or closed easily and smoothly, without fear of burning your hand or arm. Our special lid design keeps the sides of the grill accessible to food inside your grill.
304 Stainless Steel
All of the high wear parts on the MAK GRILL, including pellet hopper and warmer/smoker box lids, cooking chamber lid, grease drain pan, firepot, deflector plate, even the grease bucket is made from appliance grade 304 Stainless steel. Designed for good looks, long-life and easy maintenance, it’s what sets the MAK apart from other pellet grills.
ADVANTAGES OF THE NEW FUNNEL FLAMEZONE:
The primary purpose of the new system is to create better heat utilization in the cooking chamber. The system forces more heat upwards to the cooking surface. This will help keep the cooking chamber temperatures closer to what the Thermocouple is reading in the grill.
This new system will help the grill heat up faster, even in cold weather.
The new system reduces pellet consumption and also produces a greater volume of smoke up to 325F.
You will also notice that the grill heat recovers quicker after the lid has been opened. For example, when grilling at hot temperature settings.
The FlameZone™ pan has been "peaked" so that it will be less likely to warp at the hotter cooking temperatures, and better facilitate grease run off.
The system allows you to remove the Firepot without having to take the grease tray out of the grill. Remove the cooking grates, FlameZone™ pan and diffuser lid to gain access to the firepot. Pull out the pin, then slide the firepot to the right and lift up to remove.
