    Default Great smoker

    I lucked out and got my smokin tex about 10 years ago at the hunting and fishing show in my home town--I would not trade it for any other cooker--tried the green egg--not even close as a smoker--not bad as a bbq pit--I've cooked everything from jerky to tenderloin..have sold several friends on smokin tex and have not had one person cuss me yet--they all love it--the service has been great and the people friendly--if my smoker ever goes down--after I stop crying---I'll order a new Smokin Tex

    Default Cold Weather

    I am close to buying a Smokin Tex, however as I have been comparing the only thing that has concerned me is that some of the reviews have noted a lack of insulation on the Smokin Tex. Is this an issue, while I live in North Texas where it doesn't get extremely cold, I will want to use it as much or more during the winter. Thanks for any help.

    I live in the Dallas area and smoked during our little 4 snow day ice and cold snap. Everything worked well and came out great. You will love your smoker.

    I have used my 1400 in 5-degree weather in a snow storm. I should have taken pictures, and it made the neighbors laugh. That is, until they had some of that smoked steel-head and jalapeno dip...

    Make sure you don't allow the drain to clog in cold weather.
