I have both. I'm not sure what's easier until I get the right brush. I use the ash vac on the offset all the time. Seems like sweeping might work easier and vac every few months.

The WiFi experience is the one area that I wish MAK would tighten up. When I bought mine a few years ago, instructions for installation of the WiFi module were sparse & disclosures like having to operate your MAK strictly via MAK Mobile when using WiFi was no place to be found. I can't remember if they mentioned in the instructions that you have to connect WiFi to 2.4GHz or not. I didn't find out about that until I called to ask for help to get it running.

Canít disagree with you, but I will say that the WiFi module is WAY better than it was a few years ago. It was pretty bad. As mentioned there were a couple of issues last year. MAK jumped on those and today it is rock solid. I hated it 4 years ago when I first tried it. Thatís no longer the case at all :)

MAK Group Buy
 
Happy Monday Brethren and Sistren! Well, all good things must come to an end. Official word from MAK Grills is that our ďgroup buy dealĒ will be coming to a close at the end of business this Thursday, 3/12. That was strategically planned as MAK did not want to end it on Friday the 13th... lol. If you are currently sitting on the fence, now is the time to make your final decision on which side your gonna come down :)

Congrats and welcome to the MAK family!! :)

What accessories did you decide on?

Sooner21 03-09-2020 01:12 PM

WiFi, full upper grate, and cabinet door. Really looking forward to being able to cook as often as I used to with an almost 4 year old dude running around!

Solid options! And I totally hear ya about wanting to cook outdoors more often. When that smoke gets rolliní itís highly therapeutic for us Brethren, especially for those of us that are parents of smaller ones. Every single time I fire up the MAK it puts a smile on my face... even if a little person is tantrumíing... lol. In all seriousness though... to be able to easily produce fantastic wood-pellet fired meals on a regular basis has been a huge blessing for my family... and I am sure it will be for yours as well :)

Congrats! He'll be helping dad sooner than you think. If you have wifi issues let me know. I can tell you exactly what NOT to do.

Ya know - some people would call you an enabler. I'll call you a wealth of knowledge and someone that really loves the product you bought! I've enjoyed all the info you've volunteered about your MAK for the last few years - I've seen most of it. Not much time to do anything but read the forum for a while but hopefully that'll change with the MAK!
