I'm in Illinois. It's 52F here, and not windy. I've got it just inside my garage door. When I open the door, the temp drops way down, then comes up while I watch it. When it get to 200F, EXACTLY, it stops. I think I'll let it go out there for a couple more hours for smoking, then bring it in and put it in the oven. I might need a new thermometer on the door. Unfortunately, I don't have one of those you hang on an oven rack that tells you the actual temp in your oven. Note to self - get one.Where are you at? Most of these home, electric smokers don't have a whole lot of insulation so if it is cold, rainy and/or windy you will have a hard time getting it up, past 200°F. I have a small Bradley smoker that can be problematic in such conditions. I place it just inside my garage (overhead door open). That helps keep it out of the wind and rain, which can really sap the heat from it. These little home electric smokers just don't have a heavy enough heating element to keep things above 200°F in poor conditions.
Like Kuan said, you can always wrap in foil and finish in the oven after you have given it as much smoke as you want.
