Why do all your posts have BB code emojis rather than the actual emojis?

Nice! What temp and how long did you cook those for? Did you wrap at any point during the cook? I much prefer no wrap, but I understand not everyone is the same.

I tried the smoke setting for an hour then turned it up to 240. I wrapped for an hour and I'm finishing them off now. I put them on 1230.

It’s been raining all day here in NorCal... which we really need, but all complain when it comes... lol. Who cares, the MAK’s couldn’t care less about rain. Heck, they’re manufactured in Oregon where they know a thing or two about rain... :)

A 9 lb butt on at 4pm... loooow n sloooow for tomorrow’s lunch.

So who upgraded their 1 Star with the Flame Zone? Trying to decide.

I did and no regrets, grill gets up to temps quicker and is more efficient so it uses less fuel during the cook, if you do it order the full upper grate it fits perfectly over the flame zone as the bottom grate and you can use one of the bottom grates as a half upper grate and I use the FZ often for reverse sears and grilling. The main reason I didn't purchase a 2 Star is because I have limited space with a small covered patio and the 1 Star has a smaller foot print width wise, plus I like the looks of the 1 Star better, I blame it on my Army background. :crazy:

Ok, did any of you Brethren speak to my wife?
I was finally decided to NOT order a Mak 2 star with smoke box and all grates available.
Took me a bit to come to that conclusion.
Till today, the wife brought if up.
Guess I'll be calling Caleb back on monday.. :tsk::tsk::tsk:

Lets DO THIS!!!

I will be giving my reviews. After/as I learn it.

I cooked/smoked yard bird today (and baloney) burning pure wood. Which I haven't done since early fall. (had ran out of wood and I don't like burning pure wood in single or negative temps any more. I'm old)
I forgot how good burning pure wood really is. Really.
I am hoping for the 90% as good!

I'm a week into my Mak 2 star cooking. I have done pork butt, ribs, burgers, steak and a brisket that is still resting. So far so good. I still can't quite fathom how much smoke this sucker puts out. So much more than any other pellet smoker I have used. Did the burgers great, though I do like a little more steak sear than this can give. This was expected and I am good with it. When I bought I also bought a 3/4 shelf and a grill grate. I think I want to add a full shelf, the other grill grate and the front shelf. I also definitely need a stronger cleaner than the stainless steel fridge cleaner I have.

I also bought the wifi but haven't set it up yet. I figure I want to learn the pit for a while before I go full lazy. But full lazy is definitely on my horizon. There is nothing quite like the convenience of a pellet grill. I smoked a brisket for 14.5 hours today while also getting a full nights sleep, spending a few hours at baseball practice with the kid, and waxing a few pairs of skis.
