MAK Group Buy
 
I talked to MAK grills & they said they don’t normally discount their grills but they said if it was a big enough group they might be able to work something out. So I guess we need to see how many would be interested to see what they can do. So please respond if you’re interested. Or, if RWalters wants to step in & take this over since he seems to be the most knowledgeable on all things MAK, He can. Up to him. wink wink!

Thanks

I’m interested

I’m in, and totally wiling to facilitate! Spoke w/ the guys at MAK and they’re excited to give this a whirl. Should know the “specifics” soon (hopefully tomorrow), but I do know that the more sold the better the discount/deal. Under 10 will be one deal and over 10 will be another deal.

With that said, anyone that is interested in buying a MAK 1 or 2 Star at a discounted price better chime in now as I have never seen MAK do anything like this. They almost never discount, nor do they give things away... so any discount/freebie they toss our way is gonna be a rare opportunity to see any savings at all on this lifetime cooker :)

A year a go I would have been in, we love our 2*. If your on the fence it would be a great time to jump in.

The deal will be nowhere near what you got... lol. You’ll never beat “gently used.”

Dammit.

Y’all gonna really make me go down the slippery pellet road aren’t ya?

rwalters 02-26-2020 07:11 PM

Lots of peeps about to get tax refunds... just sayin’ :)

I’m interested but it depends on price if I could do it

Depending on the discount, I might be able to be coaxed into upgrading to a newer model with some of the features I’ve been longing for.

With all the Smokefire returns going on - I bet you could get a good number to jump in. If I were a pellet guy, it would be a MAK over everything else.

Count me as very interested in a 2 star.

Jrogers84 02-26-2020 07:20 PM

I will obviously look into it more when I have more than a phone, but what are the big differences between the 1 Star and the 2 star?

Here’s a pic of mine loaded down with 15 racks of St. Louis style ribs:

This was a mess of smaller butts with room for more:

Here’s another MAK owner with 4 15ish lb. briskets (older MAK).

2 Star provides:
-304 marine grade SS cooking chamber
-Side shelve with cold smoke box
-Funnel Flame Zone for grilling
-Lower shelf
-Extra slide in rails for up to 3 additional grates vs 1 on the 1 Star

All of that can be added to the 1 Star w/ the exception of the cold smoke box and extra slide in rails... but by the time you do that, you’re approaching 2 Star pricing.

I have owned and cooked on both... and both are top notch! Really depends on budget and what you’re wanting out of the cooker?
