    How good is a MAK..???

    Well, mine is simply incredible.... Long story short, it spent nearly 2 years in a leaky cargo trailer going through rain, snow, ice, minus 20 to over 100 -- improperly stored -- full of pellets -- greasy -- neglected.... Last night it came home. I expected disintegrated pellets, locked up...

    #524 is still here...!!!

    MAK # 524 arrives...

    Hmmm. I expected a bigger truck but at least they didn't wait until 5pm to get it here... Darn. False alarm. Well, at least I'll have something to burn in it... This looks better.... It may not be #500 but it's a great number anyway (these things must be selling like hot cakes..!!)...

    Patience is a virtue....

    Or so I've heard.... The Frog mats, seasonings and Grill Grates showed up today. Another box is due to arrive tomorrow -- probably the upper grate, griddle and probes. A couple hunnert pounds of pellets are on the way. And somewhere out there on the long road to Illinois is a MAK with my...

    That wasn't an easy decision...

    Well, after a month of lurking at Pelletsmoking & Big Poppa's, over at Pelletheads and Meathead's place too, then agonizing back and forth between Mak and Memphis, filling and emptying BP's shopping cart with 1 stars, 2 stars, Selects, Advantages & Pro's, along with various other goodies, I...
