    Cookshack Fast Eddy FEC500 Competition BBQ Smoker - Wood Pellets


    Delivery Cost: $0.00



    Quick Overview:

    The Cookshack Fast Eddy FEC500 is a competition grade commercial BBQ smoker uses 100% wood, food grade pellets — no gas flavor and even continuous heating.

    Cookshack Fast Eddy FEC500 Competition BBQ Smoker - Wood Pellets



  • Pellets are a "green" renewable fuel source -- the FEC500 uses no gas!
  • Fast start up, continuous even heat, and precise temperature control give you consistently delicious barbecue. There is no gas flavor aftertaste to overcome.
  • Cookshack's proprietary IQ4 electronic time and temperature controller is easy to use, and gives you consistent results with every load. Its cook and hold feature is standard on all commercial Cookshack and FEC models.
  • When the smoke-cook cycle has finished, the controller drops automatically to the hold temperature.
  • Electronically-controlled temperature eliminates large heat fluctuations that dry and shrink meat.
  • Patented automatic wood pellet stoker-fed system is operated by the IQ4 controller. It knows when the smoker needs more fuel; you can go away and leave it to do its job without your attention.
  • Easy flip-of-the switch starting brings the FEC rapidly up to smoking temperature.
  • Burners stay on when doors are opened; heat recovery occurs in as little as 15 minutes. Some other smokers take up to an hour to bring the temperature back up. This affects the quality of the meat and lengthens the cooking cycle.
  • Placing food on rotating rotisserie racks results in more even cooking which means consistent results. No surprises for you or your customers!
  • Flip a switch to auto-start, no tending a fire, it cooks overnight with no attention needed.
  • Consistent flavor results! With the FEC's precisely regulated patented wood delivery system, there is no chance of an employee adding more wood and changing the flavor of the meat.
  • Because the FEC500 is 100% wood burning for both its heat source and flavor source, results are consistent. In gas stickburners, the wood logs get smaller as they burn, and as new product is added, wood must be added as well. Since product is cooking while new wood is added, flavor is affected.
  • Racks are removable and can be power washed for quick clean up.
  • Uses a convection fan for even cooking with less shrinkage.
  • For easy loading of product, rotisserie racks are rotated manually with the FEC's rugged cast metal 1HP Linemaster Hercules Heavy Duty Foot Switch.
  • Self-closing doors keep your hands free to handle meat.
  • The shelves are easy to remove for cleaning.
  • No professional set up required, just roll it in place and get started!
  • The FEC500's rugged stainless steel interior and exterior is a stronger, higher grade of steel than the black carbon steel used in many other brands of smokers.
  • This tough smoker is built on a tubular steel perimeter which will not warp or bend, even if the smoker is moved by a fork lift. This is one sturdy piece of equipment! Some other brands make a cheaper smoker, but no one makes a stronger one.
  • We use Spin-Glass Board insulation, for superior heat retention and fuel savings, between the double layers of the FEC500's body. Your energy costs stay down because the smoker is not constantly re-heating due to heat loss. The smoker is dependable in all climate conditions.
  • All seams are sealed so that no moisture can leak into the insulation — no fire danger. (Unlike some other brands, we do not use mineral wool insulation because it deteriorates over time and it can absorb moisture if seams are merely riveted and not sealed. Grease-soaked insulation can be a fire hazard.)
  • Double stainless steel doors give you access to the entire length of the rotisserie shelves.

    Pellet Heat
    • Pellet heat is controlled by a fully automatic wood pellet system.
    • With continuous use, the FEC500 produces about 8 oz. of ash per 40 lbs. of pellets used. Danger of a fire from removing hot ash and embers is eliminated, unlike log burners that require removal of live coals.
    • Pellets are easily obtainable, inexpensive, and easy to store; available in a variety of flavors.
    • Pellets are 100% food grade wood; no binders or additives. The pure wood smoke flavor cannot be beat.
    • Unlike natural gas and propane, which are fossil fuels, pellets are a renewable resource. Fossil fuel prices are going out of sight; now is a good time to free yourself from depending on gas. Give yourself an 'Atta boy' for going green.
    • Pellets leave behind about 3% of ash — a fraction of the 30% ash produced by logs. No more hauling big buckets of hot ash and burning wood coals to the dumpster. In fact, you can empty ash with a saucepan rather than a trash can.
    • Pellets produce a clean burn for a better smoke flavor, and they are more likely to pass emission standards requirements.
    • Pellets produce low creosote buildup so that the smoker walls require less frequent cleaning.
    • Loading pellets into the FEC's hopper is easy — just pour them in right from the bag.
    • Storing clean plastic bags of pellets is far more desirable than a dirty woodpile on the premises!
    • We have had former stickburner customers report that their health inspectors told them that they had to spray their big woodpile to rid it of bugs, but they could not use the wood for smoking as it had been sprayed! No hassles like this with an FEC!
