Yes I smoke all winter long. BUT I'm set up in the garage so out of wind. Insulated but no heat. Never had a problem.Thanks. Just out of curiosity—and because you are from Winnipeg—do you use yours in the winter? I’ve BBQ’d on my gas grill here as we get those lovely Chinooks in Calgary, but was wondering about smoking below 0 C. After tasting a whole chicken on the smoker, my mouth is already wondering about a turkey for Christmas?
