Maybe the temps on a computer controlled pellet cooker are more precise and you aren't truly cooking at the 225 you think you are on the other pits. The convection of the 120 actually allows you to either drop your cooking temps by 20 degrees or cook a little faster. I know guys using the fec100 doing 270 for 12 hours. I think truly cooking butts at 225 would take more like the 14-16 hours you are seeing.
