Looking for a I believe is a called a grill blanket for a 1250. Might be a bit cool in Iowa over Thanksgiving and I would like to retain as much heat as possible when I smoke the turkey. I don't see that RecTeq offers one; is there a generic that fits well?

Recteq used to offer one, but I don't believe they do any more. People here use welding blankets. Harbor Freight is a good source. Hope this helps.

I posted here that I was looking for one and someone that had one was willing to sell it for a reasonable price. Really glad I got it, do not know why RT does not sell them any longer.

I had a blanket and found it to be a real pain to use, it fell off every time I opened the lid and would end up in the snow on the ground. Also have to be very careful using a blanket and do not cover the handles or they get very HOT!

If you go for a blanket, make sure you do not get a fiberglass one and get one that is good to 1000 degrees. The lower cost ones are only good for 300 degrees before they start to melt.

I know your looking for a blanket but I live in missouri and last winter when it hit below freezing and even zero I never had an issue with keeping temp without one. Didn't seem to burn to much more pellets either. Jist did wings 2 weeks ago when it was 28 out and kept temp like champ. I did use one on my traeger I had years ago and could notice a difference. It would not get above 300 in the winter without one. Recteq seems to be thicker and better suited for cold weather.
