New to the forum. First let me say I've been wanting an fec 100 for years. Received it Tuesday 21st. What to season it with? Saturday morning went to the meat market got 2 butts, 9 baby backs. Back to the house 1 pm fired up the 100, while it was coming up to temp seasoned the meat, 2 pm meat in. Put the butts on bottom three rib laying flat per rack for the last three racks. Ribs off in 4 hrs. Butt off Sunday 8:30 am. Ribs come off perfect with just a little meat clinging to the bone and tender. smoke could have been a little heavier for me but everybody said it was fine to them not to heavy or light. I think next time I will extend the smoke time and maybe add some mesquite. The butts ended up with black bark all around. Pulled the bone straight out with no effort at all and the meat melts in your mouth. What else could you ask for on the first run. The best thing is I got to sleep all night and not one time got up to check the fire. Now that was different for me. Funny what a man will spend to get a night sleep. The fec 100 is all its hyped up to be and more.
Over and out
