Stumps Platinum models are reverse flow offsets. I have never cooked on an original Stumps but I have cloned both the Classic model and the Platinum model. I feel if you can afford the original they are great cookers. I am sure that there are many learnng curves that us cloners are fighting. Like any other cooker you have to learn it and use its strengths. I dont know if I can tell the difference from the Upright clone or the Reverse flow in food taste as I have not compared the two in side by side taste tests. We have done better in comps with the reverse flow BUT we had the upright when we first started and have learned more.

I've got a reverse flow, and I'm going to build an gravity feed. I'm planning on smoking the first 150 internal temp in the RF and switch to the GF for the long haul stuff like brisket and butts. Even ribs after the first 2 hours, could go in the more efficient and easier to tend cooker.

Along the same lines, does it make sense to use a gravity feed with wood and an FEC 100 for different meats? I'm thinking about it....
