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. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
