I told Tim that I would show pics of my new pellet cooker...

It was really easy for me to put together... the unit rolled right out of the box and all I had to do was attach the side shelves and plug it in.

From the left... the on/off switch, below that is the pellet prime... the digital temperature read out, then a button that lets you choose to see the actual temperature or the temperature you have it set at...then the last button is to select either smoke or cook.

The unit will go from 180 degrees to 660. Also acts as a convection cooker.
I really like it so far. This is my first experience with pellet cooking.

I'm used to cooking with a shovel, pile of wood and a match. lol This thing is amazing.. set it and forget it.

Thanks! I like the thing so far. :)

Here's a little more info on them... http://hearthlandproducts.com/products/grills

It puts out more smoke when using the "smoke" selection than the cook selection.
I just tried the grill feature this weekend.. it worked out great.

So far I've smoked the sausage stuffed pork loin... baked some jalapeno cornbread and made one ham/potato stuffed fattie.
Then grilled some chicken fajitas this weekend.

Al... Great song.. LOL!! I'm going to have that in my head all day. Thanks! :D

Thanks everybody...

I have been interested in the Memphis Pro but I am still on the fence between it and FE1000. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Savannahsmoker, this is my first pellet smoker. I really like it so far.
here is a link to my first cook with it.. I was able to smoke the loin and then kick up the heat to bake the jalapeno cornbread.

I was very happy with the results.
here is a more detailed description of the first test..

Here is another smoke on the Pro...

I can't find my post using the grill feature... I'll post it when I find it. lol

Feel free to ask any questions Savannah, I'm happy to help if I can.


I really like being able to grill at 650 degrees or slow smoke at 180. It also acts as a convection oven and is great for bakiing.

http://www.theqjoint.com/forum/showthread.php?p=86077#post86077

It worked great.. I preheated the gril, it took about 10 minutes or so. Then threw the peppers and chicken on.
The unit is so easy to operate. just set the temperature you want and it does the work.
I'm still a wood burner at heart and will never give up my horizontal homemade woodburner, cinderblock pit, underground pit or my drum.. but this thing is great for the days I do not have time to tend a fire. :D

Believe it or not, we actually did our ribs in an FEC 100 last weekend.

we screwed 'em up, but we did use it.

I don;t know how it happened, but when I went to check on the ribs about an hour and a half into the cook, they were sitting at 150 on "hold". I don;t know how to make it do that, and nobody really knows what happened, but after having thoroughly dried them out like jerky that way, we had to crank up the temps to be sure they were done in time. They really sucked.

Hey Jeanie,

You won't believe this but when I was telling my wife about your new cooker, she actually said i should get one because she might be able to cook on it. So, I'm gonna hop on this train quickly. Looking at their web site, do you happen to know the difference in size between the Pro, Advantage, and Select. It's missing quite a bit of cabinet and the temperature range is smaller. But for about $1k to $1.5K cheaper I'm wondering what you think about the options. I want want big enough to cook at least a large packer brisket on. The seem to look similar in size on the web site, but sure the Select must be pretty small, for less than $1k.

That's great Josh! I bet your wife will like using it too! One of the things I like about it is being able to bake breads outside, it keeps my house cooler. :)

Have you checked out the Hearthland site...
http://hearthlandproducts.com/products/grills
shows the different sizes.
The Pro has the larger cooking area.

I did a brisket not long ago, it was a full packer about 15 inches long. I set it on the middle rack and placed a drip pan underneath. Not sure why I didn't get pictures posted here but I will. It fit fine. :)

Let me know if I can be of any help!
