    I bought a BBQ Butler brand from Amazon. Fits really well and have had no problems. I live in upstate NY where it is cold in the winter. I can't be sure it saves pellets, but I assume it would

    Perhaps a blanket from an AirGas store is needed.

    I use a Harbor Freight welding blanket as well. I haven't had the issue the Powersmoke has experienced and would stop using it like he did if I saw them. But overall very happy with using the blanket. My 13yo Traeger's lid isn't quite square anymore and the blanket works well on helping retain heat. Just remember that the handle will get really hot under the blanket. Don't grab it with your bare hand...we've found that out the hard way...a lot. Pretty flat learning curve around here.

    I use to use a Harbor freight welding blanket until I noticed my black cooker covered in fiberglass hairs shimmering in the sunlight. No thanks, I don't want fiberglass in my food. I heard a wool blanket would work.

    I have a Recteq RT 700 and use the Recteq sewn to fit blanket on it in cold temps. And up here in WI it gets COLD. It does all the things you described. Allows me to cook year round with the same grill performance as in summer temps. They DO spec it to be used in outdoor temps under 50 degrees and grill temps no higher than 350 degrees.

    I use cheap Harbor Freight welding blankets over my cookers just for these reasons. They also provide wind protection on my gasser when the gusts off the ocean keeps blowing away the heat.

    Insulation blankets

    I was thinking of adding a insulation blanket to my Traeger even though I don’t live in a cold weather area. My thinking is it will hold temps even better, speed up coming up to temp times, and slow down on pellet consumption even more. Has anyone tried this? Would it be worth the expense?
