The FEC 100 is a great cooker, I've been using one for 3 years now. Running a stickburner can be a ton of fun and it's really hands on, but other times it's nice to actually go to sleep or just watch the game with a beer in your without tending to the fire every hour.

We cook on Traegers, both the Junior and the Lil' Tex at home and in competition and have had good results. We have a digital control on one and standard control on the other. Very pleased with both. I'm from VT and cook right through the winter.

What is your method? Are you using the smoke only function on FEC? Do you keep the doors cracked? I've only ever done cheese in the FEC with a Pro-Q Cold Smoke Generator.

I have had two Traegers and love them. I have the new deluxe and it actually has 3 shelves on it. I have had nothing but great help from customer services anytime I have needed anything. I had the Texas before also. I think these are great pellet smokers.

IQ4 doesn't have a smoke setting. I put a 6" strainer on the bottom. The middle is pushed up to form a ring and I put pellets in it. Works ok, but I'd like to check out the ProQ setup sometime.

I was expecting to see some food PIC's some where, heck any where, old post, new post, some thing some where post, but to no avail! I'm in the market for a new smoker and I have narrowed my choice down too two differant smokers. We've all seen PICS of food cooked/smoked on one of them, (Stumps), but no where could I find FEC 100 cooked/smoked pic's. (OTHER than Cookshack's web site, and thats one pic only) We as BBQ'ers taste with our eye's, if not why show PICS? Everyday you can look at any BBQ forum and see PIC's of some thing, heck most Brethren here look at someone's Posted PICs and say's "how good looking someone's PIC is and that they'ed like to have some", well I've been trying to do the same with pellet smoker's, if you will, look and taste with my eye's, see some pic's. Shouldn't be that difficult I thought, how wrong I seem to be... As far as comp only PICS, I never said I want to see your turn in box, I just can't believe I couldn't find an OLD POST some where with pellet smoked/cooked food PIC's, mostly FEC100 smoked. We all know when a person gets a new toy, we're showing off food pics cooked on the thing! Maybe I should keep going thru the archives

That's really clever! The ProQ is sweet but pricey considering the shipping from the UK (unless there is a US distributor now, there wasn't when I bought it last year). I figured you must have been doing something like this because the smoke only function on our FEC-100 still hits 165 and can creep up to 180 if it sits long enough, definitely way too hot for cheese.

Hard choice as to which is better looking: The Smoker, or the CHOW!

Interesting discussion...I've been thinking about getting a pooper too, but I haven't had any experience with them. Right now, I'm leaning to the MAK--there's no dealer around here, but they are advertising free shipping on their webpage.
