    Greetings outdoor cooking enthusiasts

    Hi, I'm from Minnesota. I grill all year on my Weber 22.5 inch grill. I also smoke salmon and pork once in a while on my cheap vertical propane smoker.

    Welcome to The Pit Brent! I see you've got your signature set up. Awesome! Thanks for that. There's a lot of discussion going on in several places right now, so jump in wherever you like. The water's warm!

      Hi brentt, I live in Montana so probably a similar climate. How do you adjust your cooking when it's below zero? I plan on doing a bunch this winter and could use advice.

        I use just a little bit more charcoal than normal when the temps dip way low. I grilled steaks this past winter when it was -8, and they turned out great. One benefit to winter grilling is it seems like the charcoal gets ready quicker than summer. I've never timed the difference, but I think it's due to the dry air the charcoal is stored in.

          Funny you say that. I grilled last year when it was below zero and the charcoal in the chimney seemed to just love it. I agree, dry air makes it ignite good. My 660lbs of 1/4" thick steel in my offset didn't like it but eventually it came around...eventually.

          This winter I plan to dedicate a thread here to winter time grill/smoker pics for those of us in the northern states or international winter climates . The best pic of shoveled walkways out to the grill/smoker, snow piles all around, will get extra bonus points. And as Pit Boss says- bonus points here are valuable because you can cash them in for more bonus points

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative. Click here for more about what makes this grill special.


          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
