Smoking in a Blizzard

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Well, darn near a blizzard. Temp is -1 with a windchill of -26 degrees and what am I doing? I have my Smoke Vault fired up and I am smoking a load of meat. A brisket, some spare ribs and I threw in some brauts on the top rack just because I had the room to do it. They make a good snack while the rest of the stuff is going. My wife is looking at me like I am crazy. Oh, yeah...the wind is gusting to 50mph too. It is whipping that smoke all over the neighborhood!

Richtee, we got about 4 inches last night, and we have 1-2 ft drifts in my yard. Usually I can just walk out to the shack in my house clothes, but with the temps and wind today, its deffinately a coat and shoes day.PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif
