Fast Eddy's™ by Cookshack FEC300 Rotisserie Smoker
Fast Eddy's™ by Cookshack FEC300 Rotisserie Smoker Oven
Fast Eddy's™ by Cookshack FEC300 Commercial Rotisserie Smoker Oven gets up to
temp in 10 to 15 minutes, features electronically-controlled heat, and an efficient 15-minute
heat recovery time. The FEC300 uses economical food
grade wood pellets in the pellet hopper, which provides the pure wood smoke
flavor your customers crave. Because it is 100% wood burning, you will not get gas fumes passing over your meat,
which means a much better tasting product than you can get with gas-fired pits.
Ventilation is required to operate this unit indoors, so check out our blog post for more detailed information or contact Cookshack

The FEC300 uses no gas! There is no gas flavor
aftertaste to overcome.
- Fast start up, continuous even heat, and precise
temperature control give you consistently delicious barbecue.
- Cookshack's proprietary IQ5 electronic time and
temperature controller is easy to use
and gives you consistent results with every load. The IQ5 controller features
smoke, cook, and rest cycles for 3-stage or 2-stage cooking. This allows you to get a deeper smoker flavor!
- Set the rest cycle and when the smoke and cook cycles have
completed, the controller automatically drops to the resting
- You will get higher yields! The electronically-controlled
temperature eliminates large heat fluctuations that dry and shrink meat.
- Our patented automatic wood pellet fed
system is operated by the IQ5 controller.
It knows when the smoker needs more fuel; you can go away and leave it to
do its job without your attention.
flip-of-the switch starting brings the FEC300 rapidly up to smoking
- Burners stay on when the smoker doors are opened, so you have fast heat recovery.
Other smokers take up to an hour to bring the temperature back up which affects
the quality of the meat and lengthens the cooking cycle.
- Ventilation is required for the proper operation of
Cookshack commercial smokers. When
planning your flue consider these factors:
Ø It must draw air naturally
throughout the flue,
Ø Clean the flue every six
Ø One inch clearance from
Ø The flue should not have more
than two ninety-degree elbows in it and be longer than thirty feet.
Ø For detailed information read our blog post or contact Cookshack Technical Support.

responsibility of the smoker owner to maintain essential combustion air at all times during operation of the

more even cooking which means consistent results. No surprises for you or
- For easy loading of product, rotisserie racks are
rotated manually with the FEC's rugged cast metal 1HP Linemaster Hercules
Heavy Duty Foot Switch.
- Consistent flavor results! With the FEC300's precisely
regulated patented wood delivery system, there is no chance of an operator
adding more wood and changing the flavor of the meat.
- Because the FEC300 is 100% wood burning for both its
heat source and flavor source, results are consistent. In gas units and stick burners, the wood logs get smaller
as they burn, and as new product is added,
wood must be added as well. Since the product
is cooking while new wood is added,
the flavor is affected.

exterior is a stronger, higher grade of steel than the black carbon steel
used in many other brands of smokers.

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
- We use 850°F Spin-Glass™ insulation, for superior heat
retention and fuel savings, between the double layers of the FEC300'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.)

Great Pit, 7/9/2013
I have owned the FEC 300 for a year and a half. I absolutely love it. I have never wrapped anything during the cooking process and have yet to produce a dry product. I have not used every pit ever made, but this is the best I have used.
I have loaded 16 whole packers and 10 Butts in one cook which is pretty close to the advertised 300 lb. advertised capacity.
A Beast, 12/3/2013
I've had this pit for over a year and can't say enough about it! Incredible product time and time again. Being able to control the temp and rely on the machine is key to a superior product! Load up 300 pounds of meat and pull a Ron Popil! \"SET IT, AND FORGET IT!\" No more worrying about feedinf the fire all night! Nothing like waking up to amazing BBQ!
