It’s here! The much awaited MAK Mobile. I don’t have it yet, but when I do, I’ll review it. What I do know, is it consists of a WiFi chip that installs on the Pellet Boss, and a website that can be accessed via computer, smartphone, tablet, etc. It will give you access to every feature of your Pellet Boss (except turning the power on), and a whole lot more.

Never ones to rest on their laurels – the crew over at MAK have come up with their latest accessory: The MAK Grill Pad. Forget the flexible pieces of sandpaper sold at your local DIY places – The MAK Grill Pad is made of ceramic tiles mounted onto a powder coated steel frame. I guarantee this will add yet another dash of class to your MAK Grill (as if it needs it) and will set you even further apart from every other grill on the block. See it in action in my photo in the sidebar to the left!

Congrats to our friends over at BigPoppaSmokers.com for winning Grand Champion at the 2012 American Royal BBQ Contest. BPS is a big influence on the pellet cooking industry, and their “PelletSmoking.com” site dedicated to pellet cooking is an excellent resource for experts and newbies alike.

MAK has done it again. Not only have they designed and built the best pellet grill available, but now they even have designed thier own unique Pacific Northwest blend of Pellets!
This new blend for smoking is a unique combination of Hazelnut, Cherry, and Alder.
Next up will be a custom grilling blend – I can’t wait!!

A special “Congratulations” to the fine team at MAK Grills, for yet another Vesta Award win. MAK has won multiple awards for the 2-Star. This time, it was the 4-Star’s turn to take the spotlight.
I love BBQ, but like most Americans, really only grilled. I had tried cooking low-and-slow with my Weber Kettle but couldn’t control the temperature the way I wanted to get consistently good results. Turns out - I had the TASTE for BBQ, just not the PATIENCE.
In 2010 I went over to the darkside – Pellet cooking! I bought a MAK 2 Star General Pellet Cooker in June 2010 and started expanding my BBQ knowledge and skills. The pellet cooker helps take some of the black magic out of BBQ, making it almost a hands-off experience, and it imparts an incredible wood smoke flavor to everything you cook.
I have been using my MAK a lot since I bought it and have tried several things I just would not have had the guts to try on a charcoal/gas grill. It has been a wonderful experience so far and as I continue to learn techniques and continue to try new things, I’ll post them here.
My hope is to be a source of information for others that are looking to make the move to pellet cookers, particularly the MAK.
