kettle grill smoking in the winter.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello guys.

I got myself a weber kettle and love smoking on it, but I have a few questions.
First off I live in Northern Alberta, Canadian winters can get really cold. Is it possible to smoke meat in a cold climate if I can keep my kettle hot enough.
It would be nice to smoke all year round.
I'm going to try a thanks giving turkey this year, if anyone has some tips for me.
Thanks guys.

Hey Clint,


Not sure how it will go, but I am with you on trying to...I can't imagine not smoking for over 5 months, and I live in Montreal where winters can be quite difficult too.


I would not imagine that the cold would have a huge impact, might burn a little more fuel, but the wind could be a problem. My plan was to smoke in my non-heated shed with a tube attached to the top vent that runs outside...not sure how this will work out...but I'm gonna try! LOL

Hey I hope that works out for you, I'm going to try my best to keep smoking all winter.
It's going to be learning experience but I'm up for the challenge.
