Ok, I just bought a new MES 40 to replace my Bradley smoker. It's been a really wet summer so far, and I want to be able to smoke when I want to, not just when the weather allows. I have a 14x20 barn that I was thinking about hanging an old Range hood in, and putting my smoker in there when the weather is questionable. I could vent the hood out the side of the barn, and I'm thinking I can capture most of the smoke. I know some people build dedicated smoke houses, but I really don't need anything that big. All I really want to do is make sure I keep my smoker dry. Is that a bad idea?
