Hey Folks - New to the forum.

I just purchased a grill blanket for my 575 Pro, thinking it would be good for smoking in the winter here in North Georgia. Just noticed it is not recommended for temps above 32 degress.

Has anyone used or have experience with using a blanket above 32? Any damage to the blanket or grill?

I don't plan to use it at temps above 65 degrees.

Thanks for any feedback.

Bob

32° might seem cold to you since you are in GA, but there is no need for the blanket in anything above the 30s... that would be harmful IMO and might VOID a Traeger warranty

If it says "not recommended" then there's a reason.

Geezzz man that is room temperature for me!!! 😄

I live in MS and ordered one same exact as you with the thought in mind of heat retention and lower consumption of pellets!!! Additionally I am going to add a fireblack seal around the lid and 6 split firebrick in the bottom of the grill. 😁👍🏻

I've done an overnight cook, low was 25f. I didn't use a insulation blanket. Pellet consumption wasn't that bad. At 50f degrees and over, shouldn't be much difference in pellet consumption compared to when it is in the 70's.
