    A water heater blanker should do the trick. Is your smoker out of the wind?
    What kind of smoker is it?

    I know how it is in the cold. I'm up here in Mn, lots of while stuff on the ground and very cold today. No smokes for me till it warms a bit.

    In the future, try posting your question in the category that best describes your issue. Meaning, if your using an electric smoker, post it in the electric smoker section and tell us what kind it is when you do. That way, others that may have the same unit as yours can offer some sound advice. [​IMG]

    I have an MES, so a little different.

    I keep mine in the garage until it's time to use it.

    Then a good preheat i the winter, I take it all the way up to the 275 limit when it's really cold. This way it recovers a little easier.

    If you have to much wind there are several posts on making portable wind blocks.

    Good luck.
