Never heard of that smoker, looks like the CTO. I have a charcoal basket in one of my CTO's and it works very well with just charcoal.

Big Poppa's Smokers are the only one that sells them they are a lot cheaper than a CTO but still an Ole Hickory

Temperature Range: Thermostat control range is 100 degrees F. to 275 degrees F.

Don't like the LOW maximum temperature.

Your FEC can get hotter making it more flexible in my opinion.

Well I don't have the FEC anymore it went with my BBQ trailer when I sold it, but I did like it

My max temp was 325 for the FEC any thing over that it would cut off.

I'm just keeping my options open and looking to see what is out there for under 4k

I just got my ACE BP about a couple of weeks. I do like the it. The quality is awesome.
The pit does like a lot of meat. I find that with just a rack of ribs and a small pork loin I had trouble keeping the temp down to 250. I have learned that I must make a smaller fire and sometimes add a water pan to have a heat sink. I am still learning but certainly recommend it.
I don't know about a FEC but it will be hard to beat the Ole Hickory. The convection fan is a definite plus.

I ended up buying a used Stump Classic I just could not wait until November to get an Ole Hickory pit but maybe down the road I will get one. For the price and Ole Hickory is a better buy the an FEC
