Thanksgiving Turkey Smoke

We braved the cold to smoke a turkey and a pork loin on 11/26.  It all came out great.  I had to build a plywood wind-shield to help keep the smoker at an even temp but that did the trick!  

Here in the Rocky Mountains it can be cold and VERY windy even in the Summer so I think I'll be getting a lot of use out of my little plywood box for the the smoker.

Another thing that works is a "welders blanket" (Harbor Freight sells them) over the cook chamber. The blanket plus your box around the fire box should help in the cold, windy conditions.

Re: Thanksgiving Turkey Smoke

Thanks for the tip. I read about the welder's blanket here before...didn't stick.  I'll definitely get one.  The good news is that we can smoke in foul weather so we can do it on our schedule. Our old, small bullet smoker couldn't hold a flame in the normal winds we get here...let alone a stable temperature.

Just picked up some moving blankets for under $5 each on sale at Harbor Freight Tools. Not as thick as the welding ones im guessing but we are talking just 5 dollars. Looks good on my P-48. Need to check to see if they are fire proof.

You might try facing the hitch into the wind also, I find this helps.

The moving blankets from Harbor Freight are NOT fire proof. Need to go with the welders blanket.
