I will be buying a Yoder in the next few months. Now I just have to decide between the YS640 and the awesome YS1320. Only problem is the YS1320 is NOT cheap.

We're to go buy a new pellet grill right now, it would be a fec-1000pg. It does everything IMO. I have a traeger that is super modified just to do what the 1000 does, but the 1000 is stainless and insulated

The Rec-Tec is built like a tank and has a huge cooking surface and excellent temperature control. I love to cook on mine.

I used to grill steaks on my weber, but I tried it with the yoder 640, now that is all I use, I like them better off the yoder.

I do not own but have cooked on traeger and Louisiana grills. My friend has replaced sever parts to his traeger. CS for Louisiana grills has been outstanding for him. For teh money and what I have seen I would go with Louisiana grills over traeger.

I will probably replace my GMG with a cookshack PG500 in the near future. I LOVE my FEC-100, and based on that experience alone I am a huge Cookshack fan now.

If you want versatility for high heat and slow n' slow I think it is a great looking cooker. The PG1000 is also nice, but a little big for my general grilling needs since I have the big boy FEC-100 also.

Thank you. The guy that cut them down still hasnt pmd me back saying whats wrong with them. They are better than china grills and you can buy all the addons right from them. Traeger and gmg are china grills.
