Looks great!  Nice smoke in the snow!

That look great, Keith, beautiful color on that bird! And I admire your willingness to cook in that kind of cold!

 

Quick questions - what are you using for a "winter coat" for the mini - is that a water heater blanket? Also wondering if you use a different diffuser in the cold, other than the steamer pot insert? My winter technique for the mini definitely needs some help!

No using the steamer diffuser.   I made a simple sleeve for the mini with reflectix, a 2' roll they sell at Lowes, Menards, or HD...just connected it with foil tape and made a flap door so i can see my therm. 

 

It behaves just like summer time with it.

I think it's funny that the only melting happened directly under the smoker.  No melting at all to the side.

Thanks to the reflectix, it keeps all the heat inside the circle.

Love that charcoal starter!

 

Finished mine today but waiting to paint it before I release it to the Forum.

Looking good. I've been climbing the walls wanting to get the smoker out and although it won't be a problem getting to temp its just too darn cold for me, nothing to block the wind. Soon....
