      Welcome, a trip up to Wisco for a football games is one of the best trips of the last 10 years. Sorry, I don't know anything about competitions aside from what I see on tv and even less about pellet smokers. Just the welcoming committee I guess..

        Welcome PT! What did you think about the FEC100 Max recommended?

          I cook on pellets. Own enough pellet cookers to be embarrassed by it. I work at a pellet manufacturer. Be happy to answer any questions. I cook competitions on the worlds only pellet Jambo. More important than cooker is what's your hauling capacity? Do you have a trailer? Hard to get some of these cookers around without one! Welcome!

            Welcome to The Pit Mike. You can click here to read reviews on the grills & smokers Max & Meathead have written. In addition to what Pit Boss and Candy have recommended, there have been a few compliments on the Yoder YS640 pellet cooker, seems like that might be a middle of the budget-road cooker, but built well for the long haul. I don't cook with pellets so my hands-on is null.

            Moving on...
            Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains lots of how-tos and please-dos! Hope to hear & see more from you.

              Really we need a budget before we can give much more in recommendations. I agree that YS640 is a good pick at a lower price point than the FEC100.

It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

          Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


          Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
