Just wanted some thoughts.... My pop's asked me if I had any use for a 55 gallon barrel he had taking up room around his basement and after thinking about it I was wondering if I could place it over my 16" smoker to block off the wind? Would it effectively help blocking off the wind? I would flip it upside down (to put over the smoker) and then I would cut off a decent sized hole so the exhaust smoke can escape and I can peak in to see my temperature gage. Should be easy enough to just lift it up and over the smoker when I need to check/add fuel. Also wondering how much it will affect my oxygen intake? Maybe I should drill a few holes near the bottom to ensure a better flow of oxygen getting in through the bottom of my smoker??? thoughts? Is it even worth it at all. I don't mind the cold but as you all know wind is the issue during the cold months.
