    Welcome from California! Seeing as we don’t get a real winter here in Southern California I’m no help for your temp issue, but The Pit is full of people who are!

          Welcome to the pit from Massachusetts. I have a Camp Chef pellet grill that I use year round in the Massachusetts winter with no issue. Expect to use more pellets than in the warmer months due to the cooker keeping up the temp but I have found no real issues.

                      Welcome from TN. I have the same wsm, and have never had trouble holding temps, but it doesn't get as cold here. I am a fan of the Grilla products - they are made in my home state of MI, so theoretically they should hold temps in the winter. They are great people, give them a call. I don't have one of their grills yet, but they are next on the I want list.

                      I should correct myself. Grilla is headquartered in MI, but I believe the grills are currently manufactured in China.

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

                            the good one grill
                            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.

                            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                            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!

                            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                            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.

                            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                            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.

                            masterbuilt gas smoker
                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                            NK-22-Ck Grill
                            Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
