  1. Hello. I'm new to the forum and as well as smoking. Looking into getting a smoker this weekend. Probably a Bradley for now and hopefully upgrading in the future. Live and work in Manitoba canada. Have a degree in turf management and been in the Golfcourse industry for 17 years.
    First question would be how well do smokers work in -40 weather. Also a recipe for a raw pork cure/brine for prior to smoking??

    I own a masterbuilt and it has an insulated cooking chamber much like the Bradley has.  I've smoked in -20, but never -40.  I store my smoker outside and at those cold temps my controller will not work unless I warm it up.  I just bring the controller inside.  Once it's warm I can plug it back in and it works just fine for as long as I need it to.

    Like I said before, I've never smoked in -40, but that's my experience at -20 with a MES in snowy Minnesota and Iowa.
