Greetings from the Ontario

Hi guys/gals,

I'm new here and I'm looking forward to improving my BBQing skills. It's just too bad I didn't find this when the weather was warmer. I guess in a few months I'll be able to tear-up the Q after gaining some knowledge.

Have a nice day everyone,
John ( Rokit6 )

Haha, then again Ontario might be a bit colder than Nebraska. But once it's below 20 f, (or -10 c) does it really matter?

Boozer,

True enough but fortunately we only seem to get the frigid temperatures ( between -25 and -30 for about a week or two inside of January and February. other then that it's really not as bad as you'd think. In fact there are places in Michigan that are much further north then I am.

I'm wondering, does the outside colder temperature have much of an affect on barbecuing? Will it affect cooking times or how the meat turns out?

Yes and no. Fire management is a bit more challenging. You'll burn more wood (unless you have an insulated smoker. Naturally you will be less inclined to stay outside and watch it the whole time, and the wind is a factor as well. At least around here the winter wind is out of the north, rather than the south or west. As long as you can maintain your temp at 225-275 or whatever temp you like to cook at, time shouldn't be affected.

Oh, and a couple of other things, opening your smoker is a much bigger deal in the winter. Dont do it except for to take pics for us! Lolz. If you are using a n electric smoker like a bges, they don't work in cold weather. I've heard that the bradley does.
