  1. ok I love smoking and grilling in the winter but it seems like my smoker loses temp in the winter so do you purchase a water heater blanket for the really cold winters days help .........

    Well that might work, but there may be better options. I can't say what since I dont know what type of smoker you have.nor do I know where you live to judge what temp, cold is. It all makes a difference.

    First, why don't you cruise over to the Roll Call section, introduce yourself and get a proper SMF welcome.  Let use know what kind of smoker you have, where you live and like sprky says, there are probably better options to consider.

  4. ok I have a Brinkman smoker I bought it at academy of sports its red and I lives Ga sometimes its 35 to 4y degrees in the middle of winter but I think my hubby was wrong when we tried smoking a baking hen it didn't get done after ten hours so either was the temp or the poultry cause our ribs did just fine when it was like 49 degrees out
