Wannabe inching closer

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Well, I finally pulled the trigger...I sent my check off today for a FEC100...it'll take several weeks to arrive, so I'll be studying this forum for tips and tricks (my last smoker was an electric, SM025)--any words of wisdom, just shout 'em out!

I'm excited!  (...and a little scared the wife will find out how much this thing costs)...but mostly excited!!

Congratulations that's a beast!   You'll be cranking some Q out this summer for sure. congratulation_graphics_2.gif

Good Luck with that...I was looking at them the other day and tried to think of a way to talk my " Accountant " into releasing the funds...I gave up when I got a Headache!...JJ

Congrats! Those are some nice looking rigs!

Congratulations! You're going to really enjoy it. I have several other cookers but the FEC is still my favorite.

Edit: I added a vent onto mine to help manage wind blowing into the exhaust. I got a 5" model from Home Depot that was an exhaust cap for a hot water heater.

Carpetride, thanks for the tip...will look into that!

So...I thought I'd give a follow up...
This is the 18 wheeler trying to negotiate my tiny, dirt driveway

Off the truck


I'm so excited...this is gonna be a great 4th of July!
btw, the transaction with BBQ Bonanza out of Kansas was flawless.  They were very helpful and their prices are hard to beat.

Congrats! Both on the smoker, and still being alive!  I am assuming that the wife hasn't found out how much they run?icon14.gif

That's a nice, shiny new toy!  I'm looking forward to seeing some pics of it in action...

The fourth of July...
got fire

got butt

got ribs

got smoke!

...and that's the last pic I got before the swarm converged!!
you may notice that I'm missing the drip tray...but a little redneck ingenuity got me through...
