kettle grill smoking in the winter.

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by smokingalways, Sep 10, 2014.

  1. Hello guys.

    I got myself a weber kettle and love smoking on it, but I have a few questions.
    First off I live in Northern Alberta, Canadian winters can get really cold. Is it possible to smoke meat in a cold climate if I can keep my kettle hot enough.
    It would be nice to smoke all year round.
    I'm going to try a thanks giving turkey this year, if anyone has some tips for me.
    Thanks guys.

    Hey Clint,

    Not sure how it will go, but I am with you on trying to...I can't imagine not smoking for over 5 months, and I live in Montreal where winters can be quite difficult too.

    I would not imagine that the cold would have a huge impact, might burn a little more fuel, but the wind could be a problem. My plan was to smoke in my non-heated shed with a tube attached to the top vent that runs outside...not sure how this will work out...but I'm gonna try! LOL

  3. Hey I hope that works out for you, I'm going to try my best to keep smoking all winter.
    It's going to be learning experience but I'm up for the challenge.
