One-Star General Description
The MAK One-Star General Grill is precision-crafted from aluminized steel, the same material used to manufacture home ovens. This type of metal creates exceptional heat refraction, which is one reason the cooking temperature in our grills holds within ten degrees of the setpoint temperature.
At MAK Grills we engineer and manufacture our pellet smokers to exacting standards so they will last for decades of cooking pleasure. Our grills are designed for easy, uncomplicated assembly, so that you can assemble your grill and start cooking on it in an hour or less.
Here are just a few of the outstanding features that set the One-Star General apart from other pellet grills:
- Easier assembly with two leg panels instead of four individual legs.
- FlameZone® with improved grease run-off, quicker high-temperature attainment, and better heat recovery.
- FlashFire™ ignition for sure start-ups every time you want to cook.
- The only pellet grill igniter with a Lifetime Warranty.
- Pellet Boss Digital Controller with 15 separate functions from SMOKE to GRILL.
Each MAK One-Star General Grill ships with:
- A bottle of our exclusive MAK sauce
- 1 twenty lb. bag of pellets
- 1 K-style meat probe

This is the best made American product that I’ve ever purchased. The hardware, design, paint, grates, and all the internal components are top notch and high quality. Even the included hex wrench set is Made in the USA! Nothing was overlooked. The unit is so much larger and more impressive in person. The black paint is absolutely beautiful and looks as if it wont scratch off that easily. Quality, quality, quality. I’d leave 100 stars if I could. Proud to be a MAK owner. You guys represent what American quality needs to be!
I have wanted a MAK for years and when it was time to retire my Traeger and move up to the big show, I purchased a MAK 1 Star General. I have had the MAK for about a year and a half now and I can tell you that this Smoker is unbelievable! To start, the build quality is second to none and you can see the quality and pride in the product the MAK puts out. With my MAK I upgraded to add the Flamezone and the MAK Mobile wireless system. I will add some additional feedback on both for each product, but from a high level, I no longer need my gas grill to get the beautiful grill marks. The MAK Mobile wireless system is also so awesome as you can keep an eye on whats on the smoke 24/7. As I stated earlier, I wanted a MAK for years but the price kept me from doing it initially but after pulling the trigger and just doing it… I can’t tell you how happy I am and what an outstanding smoker this is. This product is worth every penny and more!
Key Factors for choosing MAK
– Made in America (This matters)
– Customer Service (Second to none)
– Quality – The workmanship is unbelievable. The fit and finish of the metalwork is like an exotic sports car
Last year I had a horrible experience with a different brand grill. The auger locked up and it turned out to be a very expensive disposable product. For that reason I almost gave up on pellets. A good friend of mine convinced me to get a MAK. I added a Flame Zone and MAK Mobile as accessories. I can only add to the long list of people who have stated that the build quality on these is superb. Ignition and smoke happen immediately when you turn it on, which is a huge improvement from my last grill. The Pellet Boss does a great job of temperature control and also makes it easy to monitor the internal meat temp with the K-probes. The Flame Zone works as advertised and it grills like a champ. You won’t miss propane one bit. After getting used to it, my 1-Star gets used almost every single day now. It’s a truly enjoyable experience to make food of this quality at home.

This is by far the best grill I have ever owned. It is built like a tank, is attractive enough to pass the wife test, produces outstanding smoke results, can sear a steak as well as any grill I have had and is even more versatile than your indoor oven.
Where I used to light up my smoker a couple of days a a month, I am using this 5 or more times a week. I’ve cooked asparagus, grilled steaks and burgers, smoked low and slow ribs and chuck roast, made wood fired homemade pizza and even heated up some frozen onion rings. All this in my first week of owning my MAK and everything has turned out fantastic.
I was worried that a pellet grill would not provide enough smoke flavor, but the MAK produces a rich smoky flavor when you want it to. And the customer service is as good as it gets. The MAK guys are probably tired of hearing from me with questions about the best way to prepare something or to ask a general question, but they never let on.
Keep doing what you’re doing MAK. You always listen to your customers and that’s why with each upgrade your grills just keep getting better and better!
