MAK Pellet Door

6/18/2010 – Pellet Door

OK.  Mr. Barbecue himself warned me about this one and yet I still manage to keep forgetting to screw down my pellet change-out door.  Simple enough task, but I keep forgetting to do it after cleaning my MAK and inevitably will see it popped-out during my next cook.

The good news is that it has never dumped pellets when I have done this.  I usually use my MAK pellet bucket, open it and dump (while the grill is running), tighten the thumb screw, and dump the pellets back in.  No problem.

In my defense, I think I must be on a BBQ “High” when I am cleaning the grill, and forget little things like that…
