An Amercian made pellet grill by Englander that makes pellet and wood stoves. If your wondering why it looks like a FEC clone well it is and licensed by Fast Eddy.
It is not powder coated but a baked enamel process that they use on their pellet stoves. This should hold up much better than powder coating over the years.
14 gauge steel.
Same "3 cooking zone" design with a grill zone as other FEC cookers.
The controller is a PID so there is no HHT and HLT adjustments like with other FEC's. Although these settings allow for more smoke/temp flexability they can create more confusion and flameouts IMHO for those who don't know how to use them. I think this was a smart choice. Otherwise Home Depot could get a lot of returned units because people get frustrated with flameouts & temp issues.
IMHO the $1199 price is pretty good for an American made pellet grill like this. But being sold by Home Depot allows you to get 0% interest payments through their store card and have it delivered to your local Home Depot for pickup.
I like the design of the FEC but don't care for the limited space however due to the deducated divided zones.
It is good to see a big box store carrying a pellet grill like this and I hope the trend continues.
