Two-Star General Description

Since we introduced this Two-Star General Grill in 2009, we have constantly improved our flagship grill to make it one of the best performing pellet grills on the planet. Not only is this a grill that looks great, but it also cooks and smokes as good as it looks! And every MAK is designed, crafted, and shipped with pride right here in the USA.

One of the biggest differences of MAK Grills is our unending quest to engineer and design pellet grills as close to perfect as possible.

    I recently purchased the Two-Star General. From pre sales questions to delivery it was easy to see Mak was the right choice. Mak uses top notch carriers for delivery. The freight company called to schedule the delivery a day prior to arrival. The next day I received a call about an hour prior to delivery. On time and no damage. Mak does a great job packaging the grill for shipping. Everything was protected well.

    Assembly of the Two-Star was a breeze. It definitely helps to have another person. While asembling my new Mak the quality is quite evident. The fit and finish are awesome. You can also tell by the gauge of the metal used that this is a product made to last.

    Once I completed putting the grill together it was time to load it with pellets and do an initial burn in. The Pellet Boss powered up and worked flawlessly. For anyone questioning the decision to purchase a Mak, relax once you get one you will be more than happy.

    I have really enjoyed the cooks I have had so far. My first cook of baby back ribs turned out awesome. I followed that with a brisket that had a smoke ring that was out of this world. My other two cooks were a pork shoulder and a whole chicken. My results nay not have been competition worthy but I will say my food was better than ninety percent of the locals places. My coworkers love it when I bring in leftovers.

    I purchased several accessories with my grill. The most important of which I think is the upper rack. To me either get a full or three quarter upper to give you the best capacity. I also purchased the sear grate to make my Mak more friendly while doing direct heating tasks. The Teflon finish on it and the griddle are awesome.

    If you are looking for a pellet smoker made of high quality materials by American Craftsman that will last for a long time, invest in a Mak.

make a change to a finer quality grill.

I have been the owner of another pellet grill since 1990, and have three of their models. I thought it was time to make a change to a finer quality grill, and what a change it was. I am a believer after just the first meal. For newcomers to pellet grills, just start with a MAK be happy you did. For those who want a change, the MAK is the way to go. All the features, even cooking, warming tray, adjustable temperature controls, and heating speed are impressive You did a great job designing this unit.
