When do most people take off the blanket on their smoker. what temp outside is about average for everyone. I know it works great in the cold weather.

For me and my smoker I use blankets to save fuel when its colder out. I cooked last weekend, it was 55 degrees. I didn't use the blanket and noticed that I had to have a larger fire and should have used them. I pay about $100 a face cord so every little bit helps. I don't think there are any averages when to put the blankets up.

mine says not to use if its 60F or higher out. I follow that guide.

MN guy here. Take mine off my pellet pooper about 40 degrees. I've noticed major temp swings if I leave it on above that. Again my area and a pellet grill.

I and my buddy across the street use a welding blanket during the warm up and pull it for the cook.
I leave my on in colder temps as I mostly low and slow . Buddy doesn't smoke so he pulls it.
Not sure what the book says, but 40° sounds about the range.

Ok, Sorry but Grill Blanket?
As in a blanket for the grill when cooking? Like a insulation wrap for a water heater / water pipe?
