Default Pellets dominating comp bbq

Six of Top Ten KCBS-ranked Teams Smoked on Cookshack's Pellet Smokers

Six of the top ten Kansas City Barbeque Society ranked teams made their way to the top smoking on Fast Eddy's by Cookshack wood-pellet fired smokers.

Six of the Kansas City Barbeque Society's top ten ranked teams climbed to the top while smoking on Fast Eddy's by Cookshack smokers.

Top-ranked Pellet Envy, Iowa's Smokey D's, Butcher BBQ, 4 Legs Up BBQ, I Smell Smoker, and Pork Pullin Plowboys dominated the top ten rankings. Smoke on Wheels, Smoky Mountain Smokers, and KC Can Crew placed in the top 20.

Says long-time champion Ed "Fast Eddy" Maurin, designer of the Fast Eddy's by Cookshack smokers, "Serious competitors have made smoking with pellets a growing trend. Competitors cite consistency of results as a major factor, along with the reliability of thermostatically-controlled heat. These guys go to bed and get a good night's sleep while others are up all night tending the fire."

Love of cooking and competing drives teams, but the cash awards help pay the bills. Carolyn Wells, Executive Director of the Kansas City Barbeque Society, major contest sanctioning organization, estimates that prize money will total about $2.2 million in 2009.

Cookshack manufactures smoker ovens for commercial, home, and competition use under the brand names of Cookshack and Fast Eddy's by Cookshack.

This makes a good case for gettin an FEC. Is there a ranking all the smokers? I am going back and forth between an FEC or stumps.

Swamprb and I have been considering an FEC as an addition once our catering business gets up and running. I'd be hard pressed at this point to give up our bullets with the success we've had with them this year at comps. Still...it would be nice to get some shut-eye...

Might as well just make the jump to electric ovens and be done with it. Where's the skill? Whats the point? What's next, cooking on an FEC in your yard and posting pictures on the KCBS website for the judges to review??

To me it's no different than rib boliers and Crock Pot Pork butts.

They probably use MSG, too.

I assume you feel the same way about anyone using a Guru or Stoker. Am I right?

The other 1/2 of the top ten burn logs in Jambo pits (including the guy in first) so all is not lost
