    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

    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.

    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.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
