    Anything New

    Haven't really seen any posts here for a while. Are there any new innovations/improvements coming in 2019 for MAK grills?

    I live in Indiana and there is a patio show coming up at the Indiana State Fair Grounds in mid March. Will there be any MAK grills at this show? Or, Do you have any dealers with displays in the Indiana or Indianapolis area? I know Memphis is going to have some grills at this show. I'm just wanting to see some grills in person.

    Also, I see the MAK is on sale right now. Any info on what is coming for what I am assuming is a new 2019 MAK 2 Star?

    Here’s a list of what’s new on the 2019 MAK 2 Star:
    -Roaming thermocouple.
    -Increased cooking capacity with 2 extra slide-in grates (great for things like jerky).
    **this is the only thing that will not be retrofittable because of all the additional hardware that would be required.
    -K-style meat probes.
    -Updated firmware version for the Pellet Boss controller.
    -Heat governor set from 500* to 600*.
    -Updated controller and firmware.
    -Grease overflow port.
    -Changed a few design issues to make it easier to clean.

    One feature I believe made it into the PB's software is how the PB behaves if it loses Wifi. Currently, the PB will default back to SMOKE setpoint if Wifi is enabled and being used. The change would leave the PB's setpoint at whatever temp it was set to. This is a big deal for me as I pretty much stopped using my (expensive!) Wifi option as my MAK reverted to SMOKE (180-ish) during a couple of long cooks.

    The good news, you've got a great piece of equipment on the way, AND just about all of the newer stuff can be retro fitted, minus the extra grates. Don't sweat the decision too much, you'll love what the MAK is going to do for you.

    Can you confirm the fw version for this? Or is this only for the 2019 modles?
    I have 3.2 on my 2018
