For those interested, Amazon has a FEC knock-off 73% off here.

Really, anyone using a thermostatic control (Guru, Stoker, etc.) should stay out of any "pellet pooper" debate. I have a lot of respect for Phil's position on comp cooking that is is really a question of thermostatic control. It is so ironic and sometimes hypocritical that folks don't jump on the anti-Guru bandwagon as much as they do pellet cookers.

My thoughts exactly. I'd prefer no plug-ins be allowed in contests and don't use any of them but that's a debate for the comp thread. I'm keeping this one to documenting Phil's trip to the dark side.

FWIW.............I cook on stick burners in weather above 20 degrees F.
I use a small electric Cookshack when its -20 to -30 below because......
1. The snow is usually knee dee.
2. The farking wind is blowing a steady 30+ mph.
3. Getting older, doing firefighting for 30 years will definately leave your body in less than pristine condition.
Industrial strength Motrin 3Xday is my friend and keeps me moving here.

Phil, cook away on your new pellet pooper.

Adapt, overcome and improvise is the creed of the Marine Corps.

It also applys to us senior citizens............me Phil..........not you!

Going to my room now.

ok.. now THATS going to be hard to keep at 250.


tonights fleshy victim..

Large Salmon fillet with Apple pellets. I will admit, the convenience of the FE is great. its after 6. Normally, under a time restictions, I would be grilling this, but the FE will be hot just as fasts as my larger DCS grill. It definately has its advantages. At home, its like lighting the gasser, and in a contest it would equate to being able to concentrate on other things, or just go hang out.

Ok.. Question for Pellet heads. I have bags of chips VERY SMALL chips. Uniform and about 1/4 inch. Can these be added to the hopper in small amounts? Only reason I ask is I have bags of Alder which will go well with the salmon.

next question.. anyone know the fan size on the 2007 model. It blows like crazy. I am wondering if a smaller fan would give in a way less efficient combustion(blow less, but still clean), which would be more smoke and less convection.

I think the fans inside the firepot. It cycles on/off to hold temps but sometimes I see that thing REALLY blowing. i havent gotten into the guts of the Fe to see how it ticks yet.

i ask this becase I notice i get better smoke flavor on my spicewine when I use the 10 CFM fan instead of the 25CFM withthe stoker. Was wondering if anyone ever had similar experience with an FE.

BTW..before someone thinks im nuts, NO, i am not looking to mod the FE just yet.

We just inhaled the brisket flat I made last night. I hate to admit it, but thanks to barbefunkoramaq's Brisket thread, I think the brisket I just made was better than any I made all last year.

then again, it can also be because i haven't had brisket since before the royal last Oct.

brisket was Hickory/cherry mix. Started at 160-165 for 2-3 hours, then pushed to 250 to finish. No smoke ring to speak of, but excellent flavor. the wife is walkig around..'amazing.. thats from the pellet popper?" <--yes.. she said POPPER.

its not a 'smokey' flavor, but alot of 'wood' flavor. I think the salmon may wait till tomorrow since we just finished the entire flat and a load of texas toast.

Stretch that 160-165 out to 6-7 hours and you'll have all the smoke ring you ever wanted. Nice job on the brisky!
