Smoking in the rain.

Discussion in 'Side Fire Box' started by pete5574, May 31, 2015.

  1. Hello all, so I live in new England where the weather changes quickly sometimes. I recently purchased a brinkmann trailmaster limited edition. I am concerned about using it in the rain. I Am Aware Of The Temp Fluctuations Etc. What I am really concerned about is the wellbeing of my smoker. Should I be worried? It has some protection from a maple and pine tree but that is it. Thanks for the help.

    Time for a gazebo or pop up canopy.....
  3. I'd suggest bite the bullet and purchase a 10x10 ez up gazebo. You can usually get one on sale for under $100. It'll be enough for your rig, small prep table and you. If you plan to cook on a regular basis regardless of weather it is essential. Beat me to it Dave, you know, hunt and peck.

  5. I bit the bullet and got a 10x10 pop up. Nothing will stop me now!
  6. Just another tool in the arsenal. Heck with the rain now, wait till your smoking pork in the winter snow sipping a hot toddy, nothing like it.

    Just one more "DIE HARD" smokin' veteran....
  8. Good ideas. It rained all day here in Milwaukee yesterday while I was smoking. It wasn't that cold out though, so it was ok. I'll have to look in to the popup canopies.
