Two-Star General

Due to high demand, MAK 2-Star General Grills are currently out of stock. We will update this page as soon as that changes.

A Triumph of American Industry

Each MAK Two-Star General Grill is hand-assembled in Oregon using locally-sourced 304 stainless steel, from the body to the hardware. Our industry-leading funnel FlameZone system not only facilitates easy transitions between smoking and grilling, but also reduces pellet consumption and temperature recovery time in cold weather. The warmer/smoker box holds food at safe serving temperatures or allows you to cold smoke foods like nuts or cheese. Unmatched in its versatility, consistency, and build quality, the Two-Star General continues to lead the way in outdoor cooking.

Remotely control your cooks with the included wi-fi module.

Two-Star General Description

Due to high demand, MAK 2-Star General Grills are currently out of stock. We will update this page as soon as that changes.

Since we introduced the MAK Two-Star General Grill in 2009, we’ve constantly improved our flagship model to make it one of the best performing pellet grills on the planet. Not only does this pellet grill look great, it smokes (grills, bakes, roasts, etc.) 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 between MAK Grills and other pellet smoker manufacturers is our unending quest to engineer and design pellet grills as close to perfect as possible. MAK’s Two-Star General is a top-quality outdoor cooking appliance that eliminates the need for multiple backyard cooking units. From cooking over direct heat at high temperatures to making sure all the grease goes to the right place, our constant goal is to make your barbecue experience stress-free. Once you start cooking on a Two-Star, any other outdoor cooking device will quickly be forgotten.

Here are just a few of the outstanding features that set the Two-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.
  • We have the ONLY pellet grill igniter with a Lifetime Warranty.
  • FlameZone® with improved grease run-off, quicker high-temperature attainment, and better heat recovery.
  • Classic black high-temp powder coat finish helping hide grease and sauce drips.

Each MAK Two-Star General Grill ships with:

  • A bottle of our exclusive MAK sauce
  • A bottle of our exclusive MAK rub
  • 1 twenty-pound bag of Bear Mountain pellets
  • 2 K-style meat probes
  • Your choice of upper grate

MATERIALS & STYLING

  • Rust-proof  body made of marine-grade 304 stainless steel.
  • DA matte finish hides scratches and makes cleaning easier.
  • Stainless steel rivets and screws maintain integrity at crucial stress points.
  • Stainless steel hopper and warmer box lids provide extra working space.
  • Four stainless steel hooks keep tools handy at all times.
  • 3-inch medical-grade nylon locking casters hold up under tens of thousands of travel miles per year.

HEAT & TEMPERATURE CONTROL

  • FlashFire™ igniter heats up to 2000°F in seconds to get your grill up to temp as quickly as possible. Rated for 90,000 on/off cycles. Lifetime warranty included.
  • Pellet Boss® controller manages your cooks in real time with our proprietary algorithms. Program your favorite cooks for ease of use. Wi-Fi upgrade available.
  • Use up to three K-style meat probes to monitor your cook. Program alerts, or change setpoint temperature based on internal meat temps.
  • Commercial-grade roaming thermocouple monitors the internal grill temperature and communicates with the Pellet Boss controller in real time.

COOKING SURFACE

  • The Warmer/Smoker Box maintains a temperature roughly 100°F cooler than the main chamber, allowing you to keep food warm or cold smoke cheese, nuts, salt, etc.
  • The Funnel FlameZone® enables direct-heat cooking, helps reach high temperatures quickly, improves grease collection, and reduces pellet consumption.
  • Rear louvered vents exhaust heat evenly, allowing hot smoke to circulate while ensuring cold smoke exits the chamber. Smokestack designs draw heat to one side and exhaust hot smoke prematurely, causing hot and cold spots.
  • Up to 2 full and 1 three-quarter stainless steel slide-in upper grates add more cooking surface and allow you to load your grates in the kitchen while bringing your smoker up to temp.

PELLET STORAGE & DISPOSAL

  • 20 lb pellet hopper capacity, more than enough fuel for a typical overnight cook.
  • Pellet Hopper Dump Door allows you to change pellet varieties in seconds or winterize your grill.
  • Removable stainless steel firepot allows easy disposal of pellet ash.
  • Two-quart internal grease drawer collects grease. Use a mini aluminum loaf pan as an easy lift out liner.
  • Interior ash clean-out cover easily lifts off so you can brush ash into the internal grease drawer for disposal.

EXTRAS

  • Eight foot long power cord. It’s long enough so you can move the grill away from the house and still keep it plugged in.
  • “Classic black” high temperature powder coat. Helps to hide grease and sauce drips.

make a change to a finer quality grill.

I have been the owner of another pellet grill since 1990... 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.
