Default A New Toy Or Two

Ask and you shall receive! Thanks untraceable, for the lead on the FEC-120. I picked it up today and it is for all intents and purposes brand new. I am not sure it has had enough cooks to be considered broke in yet.









And I traded for this MAK 2 Star general with TTNuge, I had to give up a MJH (new style) but I think we both felt like it was a good trade. He really likes the vertical cabinet cookers and I wanted to give a high quality pellet grill a try, especially since I have an old style MJH and now the FEC-120. I envision the MAK being mostly a grill for my family and an occasional smoker when we just want to cook for us, but most of the time when I bbq I end up cooking 100+ pounds for the neighbors!

Having cooked on a lot of different styles of cookers I have a few ideas on how to increase the smoke amount, but at this point they are theories until I try them. I am in the process of heating the fec up right now so I can try out my first idea.

I'm glad you found what you were looking for, Ryan. That looks like it is in great shape as you said.

Thanks! FYI, I had that guy with the klose/fec trailer talked down substantially lower than what is posted on Craigslist. I was ready to pull the trigger until he sent me pics of the FEC.

Very glad that it didn't work out and I was able to pick this one up within 30 minutes of my house.
