I've smoked in 5-10 degree weather and that was not fun at all. Anything under 30-35 degrees sucks.

Do you guys both have charcoal smokers?

Since mine is electric, I keep it in the garage and duct the smoke out the window.

Last time I ran it, the outside temp was 15F or so, it was ~20F in the garage.

Yes, mine is charcoal and I keep it under my covered porch, but the elements don't help. We're supposed to get 4-6" tonight which means it's cold

I have a WSM and a Masterbuilt electric but I wouldn't use it in my garage. Every time you open the door you will get smoke inside and I don't want that

I don't mind that, my garage isn't well sealed so it exhausts pretty quick. It also makes the garage smell awesome for a few days.

My garage is attached to the house with a bedroom over the garage so that won't fly with the misses.

Had the family over for easter and made 2 smoked leg of lamb, they turned out absolutely fantastic!

Did the dry rub overnight and also used homegrown fresh rosemary as part of the rub



I also made a baste at the first hour and basted the meat to keep it moist, using fresh rosemary and thyme, some salt, pepper, garlic and red wine vinegar, and basted it on with a brush made from fresh herbs



The end result



The meat was a nice medium to medium-rare all the way through and the flavor was amazing. Definitely better than my first attempt around Christmas



Going to have the leftovers tonight

Looks awesome but lamb is something I just don't care for. I tried to like it but that gamey flavor gets to me everytime.

Everyone was raving about the flavor
