With much discussion on this board regarding windbreaks etc - I was thinking of relocating my smoker closer to the house to be used as a windbreak. I have a nice spot on the south side of my house which has protection from north, west winds and some protection on the east side - due to trees. My question is - what is a good safe distance to keep from the house - 5 ft? Since I've not had my smoker over the summer yet - heat near the firebox hasnt been an issue since it's been below freezing every time I used it. But in a hot July - I dont want to peel any paint!!
