    Hiya!

    On my second summer with a pellet grill and trying new stuff as often as I can. I've been very impressed by this site so I'm giving the full version a go. I live in the frozen North and just put up a gazebo so I can smoke throughout the winter too.

    Welcome also from the frozen north. (WI). I got an insulated blanket for my pellet cooker to cook year round too. Really helps with temp control and pellet consumption. I have a Recteq and they offer a sewn to fit blanket. Not sure what you have but worth a thought anyway. Smoke on!

              Lemme see, if’n ya was from Alaska ya wouldn’t be alone & ya woulda said so emphatically. Same with Manitoba & BC. Meeshigan, well ya woulda referred to a part of a mitten Or the glorious U.P. Wisconsin, there woulda been a reference to the Frozen Tundra & there hasn’t been any reports of gazebos in the Dakotas. That leaves us with Minnesota, which seems to be overrun with Pit members, much to our benefit. What is it, MN? Welcome, eat good and have fun!

              Welcome from Chicagoland!

              Great user name!

              I smoke year-end in the Chicago winters, which can be pretty brutal at times. I second the suggestion of an insulated blanket for your smoker. Although, I will add that I had a Pit Barrel Cooker for years, and never felt the need for a blanket, as it just chugged through the winters with few issues.

                        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                        Placeholder

                        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                        Placeholder

                        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.

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
