Buy it on location and $10 days they’ll sweeten the deal even a bit more. If they can avoid shipping they typically show you a lil extra love [emoji3590]

Have a new Gateway Drum sitting in the garage the last 2 days right where my wife gets out of her car, hasn't said a thing about it yet.

She knew I was getting another smoker but didn't know what it would be, maybe she'll notice it on Saturday morning when I season it and smoke me a Fatty.

Just tell her it’s an oil drum. No biggie.

I’d love a MAK but the grate size for me is kind of an issue for me. Like Saturday I’ll be doing 100 or so hot dogs and links plus 10 pounds of rope sausage for a party. Hard to manage that.

That's why you need 52 cookers. I have huge cookers (Shirley) and tiny (Red Box).

On a completely unrelated note...
Anyone care to buy a Copperhead or Pellet Pro? Asking for a friend.

I forgot to ask Mak a question. How do they handle grease in the 1 Star? All I can find is something about a grease drawer but no real details.

Paul before your friend sell those cookers he should test them head to head with the MAK you are getting, looking forward to your thoughts on the nee rig.

MAK has a stainless internal grease drawer. The chute that the grease drips into also has a removal “wall” that makes for easy cleanup. Not sure if you are aware, but the MAK’s also have a removable firepot making the dumping of ash a 10 second job.

Here’s an exterior pic of the grease drawer:

Ya’ll are a very bad influence.

I think I’ll give them a call just to make sure I can’t pass along on this...

I’ve been back and forth between Mak and Yoder. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say either will be very nice.

It's all in how you present it to her.

Yep! Just have enough smokers and they wouldn't notice. It's like us men staring at their shoe or purse collection. We'd have no clue what's new or old.

Congrats on the Gateway Kevin. Looking forward.
