So i want to do a pork shoulder tomorrow or sunday but the temp will be between 30 and 35F, any good ideas to help keep the heat in the smoker ?
What kind of smoker do you have?

Keeping it out of the wind is a big help.  

I wouldn't recommend fiberglass insulation, I'm not sure of the temp of the outside of the smoker and the safe temp limit.  There is ceramic batt insulation, but more expensive and not very common to find in the stores.

Maybe something to insulate your HVAC plenum but you would need to read the labels.
My smoker has an inch of insulation in the walls so it may not get as hot on the outside as some smokers so I just wrap it in a couple old blankets.
I could have sworn that I saw an insulated cover for a smoker. With the colder weather coming, its a bit tough to keep a constant temp in the smoker. GI joes didn't have one. 

Has anyone seen one, or know where I can get one?

If all else fails, I'll try to get my wife to make one. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
