I have had two. I prefer the older ramp model to the newer IQ4. They are cheap to run electricity wise. Easy to clean. Dependable. Knock, for some, is not enough smoke flavor. That was not an issue for me with the older ramp model. I think it is with the newer IQ4.

We opened our restaurant with a fec 260. Didn't care for it. Smoldering wood chunks just don't leave the right smoked flavor. As soon as I could, I switch to an Ole Hickory. Love it. Clean smoke, good smoke ring, rib have a WAY better appearance. Sold the fec to some guy in Ireland.

I use an FEC-100 daily on my food truck, and use it also in competition. I love it. Great flavor... Meat gets loaded at 5 PM and set to smoke for 5 hours, then kick it up to about 230 overnight (you can program it). When I arrive at my destination for lunch service the next morning, the meat is done and ready to process. After I slice brisket and pull pork, the FEC works as a holding oven.
