I heard Johnny Trigg say on one show...(parapharse) "if they're using a pellet cooker I know they're amateurs".
I have a stick burner because I wanted to learn fire management and I don't mind baby sitting the pit. Plus I like the idea of man and fire...woohoo, I get excited just thinking about dragging my wife across the cave...
oh wait!! Lost my train of thought...
anywho, Pellet burners are more set and forget in my humble opinion.
I use both. Both types of cookers have their place. If I'm wanting a classic BBQ smoke flavor, I'm using the stickburner. If I want to spend time with my family or doing something else, I use the pellet pit. Both have good smoke flavor and both make great 'Q, it just depends on which I feel like that day. I'm sure Rod still fires up the FEC's every now and again.
