  2. Keep the Smoker under some cover and you can.  Hmmm how about a patio cover?  Are you using an electric?

    Get one of those portable canopies if you dont have a deck or an overhang or something to put it under.

    When I lived at the Oregon coast if I didn't smoke in the rain if only get to smoke a couple days a year! Some smokers do better than others in the rain. The WSM family rocks it in the rain. Just smoked a bone in turkey breast a day ago in a complete down pour. The Mini-WSM rocks in the rain. I put my iGrill in a plastic bag to protect the transmitter. Other than that I did nothing else special. Smoker ran at 350 for the 2.5 hour cook. At the end of the cook I closed down all the vents and let the smoker sit in the rain. Easy peasy!

    two words....DRY WOOD!

    It can be done and I have done it many times....but you gotta have dry wood.

    I've not had any trouble with rain, but I was using charcoal and wood.  May need to keep a close eye on things, but otherwise not any different than any other time.
