Winter smoking

Post  Jonesey73 on Mon Oct 19, 2009 10:18 am

Hi,

What do you all recommend for keeping the smoker warm during Winter smokes?.
I remember trying to do ribs one new years eve and had to give up in the end as the Smoker was not holding temperature.

I've been thinking of building a little enclosure for it to keep the wind from it - is that a good idea?

I'm sure the E20 will be much better in the winter than my old ECB, but I want to give it as much help as possible so I can enjoy some ribs or Chicken this autumn / winter.

A windbreak will help a lot. And I know of folks who use those water heater blankets that you can get at a hardware store.

Try taking a large box that will easily fit around the E20 and line the inside of the box with a double layer of HD foil. Put it around the E20 and cook away. It works for us and we have never had any fire safety issues with this technique.

JMHO.
