For direct, yes it's a small space, but I'm a fan of get a crust on the steak and finish indirect (similar to how chefs get a crust and finish in an oven).

    For me, this is a grill only, I won't really use it as a smoker as I have an FE for that. I've done ABT's, hot dogs, pizza, chicken, pork loin all for grilling and the family all mention they notice a flavor difference (heck, that's something, they just let me do the cooking, they don't probably know which one I'm cooking on.

    As for the FE. I run the CS forum and they sponsor me on the circuit, so I do have a few FE's. Well actually I have 3 of them (sold one) two are Boomer & Sooner:

    I had CS powdercoat them and have a reverse door and these are in my comp trailer. Man, they just wipe down, that Powdercoat is WAY easier to clean.

    I have an old traeger style controller on the one at home.

    Damn Russ, I was gonna comp cook with you till I saw that fec 100 but crap i'm a biggot and not a pellet biggot.

    Actually I have two that sit on the back of the trailer, so they REALLY show up with all that red at Oklahoma contests.

    Tim, I named them this year and in big black letters one says BOOMER and other says SOONER.

    SMOKYOKIE: Your wife is one very lucky wife and she must be V E R Y , V E R Y hungry if all of those ABT's are for her birthday. Fantastic looking grill and I love the heat that that baby generates. It is said that my TEC/CharBroil 4 burner will get up to 800 or 900 but I am not convinced but it will put a great sear on a ribeye. I am sure that you remind her of how lucky she is all of the time. GREAT EQUIPMENT.
