Product Information


Our MAK 2 Star General Starter Package comes with everything you need to get smoking as soon as you receive your grill. When you purchase our MAK 2 Star General package you get the MAK 2 Star Grill, MAK Heavy Duty Cover, 40lbs. of pellets, BBQ rub sample pack and package of stainless steel wipes to keep your new MAK looking great.

These are some of the great features you will get standard on every MAK Two Star General American Made Pellet Grill.

FlashFire Igniter
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.

Warmer/Smoker Box
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.

Product Questions


Product Questions

Ask a Question

  • Can the MAK Pellet Grill get hot enough to sear a steak?

    The FlameZone (optional on the MAK 1 Star) direct cooking area produces direct heat at the grate level for some basic grilling. This smoker will not achieve restaurant grade sears.

  • What are the minimum and maximum temperatures I can get on the MAK?

    When using the lowest temperature setting, “Smoke” mode, the grill will operate between 170-190F. On “High”, MAK Pellet Grills are listed to reach up to 500F. Minimum and maximum operating temperatures depend on ambient temperature, type of pellets being used and altitude. Reaching temperatures over 300 degrees may take time to achieve. This cooker functions more as a smoker than a grill.

  • Does the grill include any meat probes?
    Yes, the MAK 1 and 2 Star General Pellet Grills includes 1 meat probe.
  • Do I have to use MAK brand wood pellets in my grill?

    No, you may use any brand of hardwood barbecue pellet in your MAK Pellet Grill. It is recommended that you use a food grade wood pellet with either an Alder or Oak base, along with the species or “flavor wood.” We’ve found these types of pellets work best in MAK Grills.
