That's pretty darn impressive when you think of the financial commitment it takes to buy a MAK, be it the 1 or 2 Star, was thinking when this all started it would be great if they sold 10 units.

Power of the Brethren, hopefully MAK finds value in becoming a site sponsor and regular participant.

It's been a wild week with all of this on top of regular business and we're thrilled to have participated.

I look forward to seeing everyone's cooks and enjoyment of the MAK and I plan to become a regular participant in this forum. I'll make sure we discuss sponsorship. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime for any MAK / BBQ related reason.

The phone rang at 5pm at MAK. They answered. We are now at 28 :)

Who the heck made that 5 o’clock call?!?! LOL.

Not bad at all considering the state of things, people buying all the tp and hand sanitizer. Roughly 80k worth of cookers sold.

I'm so sad I couldn't get in on this.

There is a Rural King there. Best deal I believe you’ll find on Lumberjack pellets. That’s what my buddy uses and that’s where he gets them. I don’t use LJ, but lots of guys really like them. Is there a Rural King closer to you?

It was something that MAK Grills did not want published and they rarely if ever do this type of thing. They had requested that each person interested call in to discuss. I do know that the deal was consistent for each person that bought... as that is the way MAK does things. Great people!

Which ones ash more than others, impart more or less smoke, lots to find out.


Dick's will price match. I'm in Western NY (OK/TX transplant) where 99% of the people don't know what BBQ tastes like. The only option I have outside of online is Dick's. I brought in the Atwoods Lumberjack $6.99 sale price and they matched it without question. Gonna hit a couple more up so I can stock up.

Close is a relative term here, the closer one is about 8-10 miles closer in a completely opposite direction. I've heard good things about lumber jack pellets, I've also heard they have a lot of dust, correct me if I'm wrong. But the price they have them for would be worth the drive to stock up. I'm new to pellet grills and want to use pellets that have a history of working well in the Mak. I realize maintenance goes a long way in keeping things running smoothly but avoiding poor performing pellets is a good start.
