    Ah, it’s only been -30. But it’s a dry cold, so the humidity is low, and there hardly isn’t any mosquitoes at all.

    Besides, ST says their smokers work fine at -40..... I have no first hand knowledge yet, but I have proved my 1400 at -25. The winter is long, so the experiments will continue...

    Besides, when it’s 30 below for 3 days in a row, it’s too cold to snow, and when you get to +5, it feels so dang good!!!

    Wow, never been in the negative temperature before.

    Question Bigwalleye, we have Hawaiian roots and we like making Kalua pork. We use TI leaves to wrap our pork shoulder, sprinkle them with Hawaian sea salt wrap it up and smoke it.

    Now the key to this question, is it customary in the smoking world to put the shoulder in a drip pan during the smoking process, because we want to capture any fats that is rendered during this process and then added it back to pork once itís shredded.

    Yeah the weather this time of year is better than most part of the country but there’s a lot of things going south here.

    Nellie,
    I’ve never done the wrap thing, but I’ve several friends that have, and they do just fine. I generally do not use a drip pan unless I want to hold the juices. I tryically smoke meats with a dry rub, so it’s a totally different style. That’s really the cool thing about ST, it’s so adaptable for a lot of different styles,and smoking is a really wide umbrella. Lots of room underneath it!!

    Welcome to the neighborhood, RDP! You’re gonna be amazed to see what these smokerrs can do!!

    One of my fav chicken or game hen recipes is to stuff a couple lemon and orange wedges in the cavity and dust them with seasoned salt and a heavy dusting in cornstarch and then smoke with just a very little Apple wood to a breast temp of 160. Very moist, and that lemon and orange really comes through.
