Thread Starter 

New here as well and new to smoking. I'm in the market for medium trailer mounted smoker that I use to enhance my business. My questions to the group is that being in Colorado do I need to be aware of any issues? I have been told that a regular smoker with the fire box built on the bottom will not work as well as one that is built for Colorado's unique climate.

thanks for the help

Welcome aboard..another CO guy!

I live in Littleton and smoke with an R2D2 so I can't give much advice on the side box issue. I just deal with the temp issues but it all works.

Welcome to the SMF!! Not sure why the climate is a factor....unless your going to be outside in the dead of winter, then I don't think it matters where your firebox is. Maybe you could clarify a little.

Welcome to the forum. You may want to check into a Stumps unit if you haven't already. The insulation will come in handy up there I suspect.

Good luck

Welcome to the forum. I live in Littleton too and have had a SFB up here. I didn't notice too much of a difference from smoking in West Texas, except getting decent wood. You do have to keep in mind we have a bit of a shortage on one of the 3 components of fire. Oxygen! The way to counter that is to make sure your smoker flows air. Most sidebox configurations are pretty straight forward. Vent on the firebox, and a vent on the flue. This also controls the temps more or less. This is basic fire tending 101 though. As I said before, I didn't notice a big difference except I had to keep the dampers open a little more to get the airflow higher.

I hope this answers your questions.

I've been competiting for the last 3 years with my Treager 75 and Country Smoker with no problems. I also do catering and my health department inspector gave me the thumbs up on the 75 and the whole hog so I'm good. Only time Ihave noticed a big diffrence has been when cooking in the mountains, takes a little more time, but I also use a blanket to help keep the heat in.Hope this helps.
