About MAK Grills

Our Story

MAK Grills is a family and veteran owned, US-based company rooted in over 25 years of metalworking and fabrication experience. An acronym for Matt, Alex & Kal, MAK Grills got its start from our desire to create a pellet grill that measured up to our high quality standards. We wanted to create a pellet grill company that truly put quality and customer service squarely where they should be, at the core of who we are.

Upon discovering pellet grilling, we instantly loved the idea of precision-control and genuine smoke flavor, but we had long been disappointed by models that kept falling short of what we knew a pellet grill could be. At MAK, our grills have been designed without cutting any corners to be nothing short but best-in-class, reaching the peak balance of temperature control and real smoke flavor.

We are often asked, “Why do your units cost more than most of your competitors?” The simple answer is, their units are built overseas and have a fraction of the features found on MAK Grills.

The saying, “You get what you pay for” has never been truer than right now. In a world filled with disposable products, MAK Grills stands out as a manufacturer that cares about building long-lasting products that customers can enjoy for many years. Many of our grill components are made of stainless steel, so they won’t rust, and will last for years to come. We design our grills to exceed your expectations for a quality product.


The Pellet Boss

To put it bluntly, no other pellet grill on the market even comes close to the level of temperature control, and fuel consumption allowed by the MAK Pellet Boss® Digital Control System. Exclusive to MAK Grills, and a standard feature on each and every American-Made MAK grill, the Pellet Boss is one of the reasons our grills are in a class of their own.


This innovative control is fed information from the industrial thermocouple inside the grill to manage both fuel and fan speeds. The result is extremely accurate temperature control. Simply set your desired cooking temperature in 5-degree increments and use up to three meat/temperature probes. When your food reaches the programmed probe temperature, an audible alert lets you know that the food is done.

For more advanced cooking, you can create custom cooking programs which change the grill temperature using pre-set meat probe temperatures or time. The Pellet Boss® also lets you set elapsed time and/or countdown timers with audible alerts. The Pellet Boss will quite simply give you ultimate control over your grill, and allow you to recreate the same results over and over.


We spent years developing the FlameZone® for our grills and created it to incorporate a funnel which forces more hot air from the fire-pot upwards to the cooking grate level. This allows us to achieve hotter cooking temperatures more quickly, reduces heat recovery time whenever the grill lid is opened and produces perfect results every time it’s used. The FlameZone® and Quick Change Grease Pan system are made of 14 gauge Marine grade stainless steel so it will last for decades, rather than just a few years.

Relax. It’ll be Done When it’s Done.


If you aren’t in a hurry, or just know that good thing come to those who wait, you can place the stainless steel covers over the top surface of the FlameZone®, redirecting the smoke and heat into the cooking chamber so that it encompasses everything on the grates. This setup is so versatile, it can be used to smoke, barbecue, roast or bake just about anything on your MAK Two or Three Star Grill.

Finish With Style.

Want to give that steak perfectly crispy sear marks? Add the specifically designed Sear Grates to the FlameZone®, and the specially designed ports channel intense heat directly under the food, so you can finish your cook in style.
