Here in S/W MI., 10 miles off the BIG LAKE, it's 36*, raining and blowing about 20mph, but at 0600hrs I rubbed down a 1/2 pork loin with Tony's and Brown sugar for supper. Love that lingering smell in the garage.

Ummm, Louisiana grills (Pit Boss, too) are made by Danson's, which is a Canadian company. Two Canadian girls invented them, Louissy and Anna. .....LOL. :emoji_laughing: OK, that part's BS, but they are a Canadian company.

After the grandkids left last nite I dunked my 1st. (turkey in brine) for today. Didn't need any ice, it's 27* in the garage. Right now it's 0430hrs, 20* American, snowing with a light breeze with a forecast of a roaring 27*. Just checked and sloshed the bird, at 1000hrs my garage is going to be filling up w/ smoke from my Pitt Boss. (note to self; give the fire department a heads-up about the smoke rolling out of garage.)

Reading all these posts about smoking in subzero temperatures makes me thankful I live in Virginia Beach.

I think the coldest its been when I smoked was 27 degrees F.

Yep, I know that neck of the woods. I was stationed at Langley for the longest 18 months of my life back in the early 70's.

What's funny is when I needed parts for my grill they were sent out of Minnesota not to far from me!

With a little bit of luck I managed to smoke my 1st. brined turkey today. The temp in my garage was a +27*. Took alittle longer then I was planning, 5 & 1/2hrs, but it was well worth it. My better half even enjoyed it, BUT she is still doing the thanksgiving bird.
