One-Star General


With a primary cooking surface is 429 in.2, and room to add up to double the cooking space, the MAK One-Star General represents outstanding value in our line of American-made pellet smoker/grills. In fact, has included it in their Top 10 Best Value Backyard Smokers list since 2013.

And with our pellet hopper dump door, it’s easy to swap out pellet varieties in seconds. This is a MAK original feature missing from most other pellet grill lines. To top it all off, the One-Star comes with our exclusive FlashFire™ igniter, which has a LIFETIME warranty. No other pellet grill has anything like it.

Product Info & Specifications

One-Star General Description

Our One-Star General Grill is precision crafted using aluminized steel, the same material used in the manufacture of home ovens. This type of steel creates exceptional heat refraction, which is one reason why the cooking temperature in our grills holds within ten degrees of the setpoint temperature.

Mak Grills engineer and manufacture our grills to exacting standards so they will last for decades of cooking pleasure. Our grills are designed for easy, uncomplicated assembly, so that you can get your grill put together and start cooking on it in an hour or less.

Here are just a few of the outstanding features that set the One-Star apart from other pellet grills:

  • Easier assembly with two leg panels instead of four individual legs.
  • 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.

    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!
