Cold weather smoking on the Smokin'-It#3

    This question has come up several times...:

    How do these perform in cold temps?

    I smoked 2 spatch'd chickens last night and the ambient temp was just under 0 degrees F.

    Took about 3 hours, and the cabinet temp was right at the set point- 250.

    I did a chicken and wings this summer and it took 2 1/2 hours... so a little longer, possibly due to the wind and cold...

    Now we know!

    Not a thing, just smoked with a mix of Jack Daniels barrel chips and apple wood.

    Possibly because of the wind and cold??? Yeah, I guess, huh? Says a lot about that Smokin It. Must be some well insulated cook chamber that's for sure. Nice job.
