Necessity is the mother of all inventions

It was 27* on the ride home this morning and I have butts to cook. SO, I put up a little shelter around Petunia and gave her a nice cozzy blanket. Used a few old firefighter turnout coats to help hold in the heat. Took 1/2 the time to warm up than normally would. I think I may be onto something here.

5 butts, 1 brisket, 2 WRB hams. 6 racks of spares later and tomorrow I have 4 turkeys, 5 turkey breasts and some chicken to do. I'll keep posting pics as long as you all can stand them.

Nomex of course. These are some old coats that we cant use in service anymore. By the way, if you folks know any firefighters you may want to ask them if they have any old coats. The NFPA standards have changed over the years and they should have some old coats around.

Here are some more pics for your viewing pleasure. The hams are done and I have 6 racks of ribs on.

That looks wondeful. Are you cooking for a small army?
BTW, can't say I envy you for the cold.

Yes, and no. I started an email mailing list a few months ago. I email my customers and let them know that I will be smoking on such and such a date and they place there orders. Had so many orders this time that I had to split up two days. I wont complain. Its easy money.
