I've been able to use my old cheapo smoker for many years during the winter, but I would like to try a more automated system. I've picked up a Char-Griller knock off (side firebox)and would like to use it as a test bed. It will be quite an experiment for me, but as an avid all gra6in larger scale homebrewer, I'm used to adaptation and experimentation.
Sorry to be repetitive, but are there any $58 systems left? Just wondering as this would be a factor in the system I decide to buy and try.
Just tried it for about 20 min at 9F or about -13C and it seemed to be O.K., unlike the Auber which was useless below freezing
