Got a few cooks on it now. Did a turkey for Thanksgiving, Canadian, and it was nice being able to set the one side to smoke and the other side to the temperature I wanted. It's a bit narrower than the 2 Star but still lots of room. It's also nice that it gets hotter than my old 2 Star did and doesn't take as long to warm up.
That turkey barely fits. Doesn’t look like a spatchcock would fit. Looks like it needs to be a little deeper for that kind of money. Maybe the pic doesn’t do it justice but it looks kind of small front to back???
I am a bit confused by the comment about the 3 Star being narrower. The spec for the 3 Star is 30" deep. The spec for the 2 Star is 25" deep. Maybe the specs on the MAK website are old and the newer ones have different dimensions??
