Smoking in the Cold

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I wanted to smoke up a bunch of different appetizers for the playoffs this Sunday, but the temperature is supposed to be around 22 in Northeast Ohio. Add to that a little bit of snow. Can I pull this off? Am I going to just have a disastrous time trying to smoke in that cold weather? Or should I plan on ordering some wings in?

Sorry. Siri didn't correctly tell you that i have a smoke vault 24.

I'm just going to do some apps.
Maybe meatballs, Mac and cheese, ABTs, wings, poor mans burnt ends. Random small things I've found on here.

Thanks

I am not familiar with your smoker try holding it at 250* to 300* you should be able to blow the items right out good luck

May the smoking weather gods bless ya

I cook in the winter a lot, you should have no problems except for increased fuel use to maintain cooking temps. If it is windy just put up to block it.

You will have no problem with your propane smoker. I have run mine in single digit temps many times. It will take more fuel so be sure and have a full tank.

Wind is a bigger issue than temps. If needed fashion a screen out of plywood to help with that. It only needs to be high enough to protect the lower intake vents. If you do use a wind screen be sure and leave 2"-3" between it and your smoker.

Good luck and show us your smoke.

The Smoke Vault has a big enough burner to run in any temp. Good luck, sounds like a great bunch of appetizers.

I smoke in the Wyoming cold all the time with no problem.  It's 7° out today & I just threw some wings on. By-the-way, great smoker!
