I'm working my way through Gary Wiviott's "Low & Slow - Master the Art of BBQ in 5 Easy Lessons" book and had a question or two ...thank God for Google, I found this forum and joined immediately!
My wife and I live in Knik, AK, about 55 miles north and a little west of Anchorage, kinda out in the country. It's 24 F today and warmer than usual ...and I'll be BBQ'ing all winter (like usual). If you only BBQ when there's no snow around here, it cuts your season into less than half ...and we can't allow that, now, can we?
I'm currently using a standard classic Weber 22" kettle grill, not the best choice, but will be upgrading after I do some more learning and practice. I'm able to maintain about 275 F in the kettle, at grill height, but going lower than that almost shuts down the grill (bottom vents all the way closed)... so I'm doing the best I can with this setup for now. But anyway, just wanted to say hi!
