New to smoking food.

Live at high altitude in Mono county CA.

A friend had a pellet smoker that intrigued me, was looking at them at Costco and took the plunge.

So far everything is working well.

Just need the patience and time to do it properly, the boss of me is starting to learn it just doesn't happen, but takes some time to cook.

Was lusting over the pellet smokers at Costco, started researching in my price range and ended up buying a GMG DB, non WiFi.

Starting out and it's been getting down into the thirties in the carport area. So far hadn't bought a thermal cover, one cold day, stayed in the low thirties all day I employed an old surplus wool blanket, I was running the smoker in the low 300° range, kept an eye on the blanket to make sure it didn't flame on.

Worked great at retaining the heat and reduced pellet usage, was sold on thermal blanket at that moment. Finally had one in stock where I bought the grill and installed it.

So far everything has been great, some highs and lows in how stuff comes out, but learning curve and all...
