I built my smoker about 6 months ago and have been loving it! But I have not smoked since winter has hit.
My smoker is built from a smoke daddy which is fixed to the side (at the bottom) of a 20qt stainless stock pot(got for $10) with a grill that I attached to the inside.
I normally cold smoke everything that I have done, but for a gathering on Saturday I was asked if I could do some pulled pork. I figure I would add heat with a hot-plate. Does anyone have experience trying to hot smoke with a hot-plate in the figid winter temperatures? The weather forecast for saturday for me is -25C or -13F Am I going to have an issue getting this unit to heat up?
