Both are amazing cookers and I consider both a tool for certain jobs. Right now, as I play with both, I'd be prone to doing bacon, chicken, turkey, sausages, etc. in the FEC 100 and briskets, pork and ribs in the Assassin. That may change after I take the December class on the FEC 100 in Ponca City. Both are new to me but I've cook for years on both types. Both companies give great support which was one of my major concerns when buying them.
