It's Raining

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have ribs on the smoker and it started raining and I'm dropping temp real fast! Any suggestions?

Got an old moving blanket? Or small old cloth tarp? Put it over the smoking chamber but not the fire box section. Keep an eye on the blanket to make sure it does not start to smother (aka catch on fire). Add more fuel and open the damper so it builds up more heat.

 

Seen on pit masters.

I always end up standing next to the smoker with an umbrella.

Make sure it isn't a blanket made with polyester - polyester melts and smells nasty! But anything made with wool or 100% cotton should do well, also canvas tarps work good to.

I would do what Al does, just add a beer in the other hand.

It really depends on what kind of smoker that you have ? If it's a smaller smoker like most of the foks here have then it's like Al said. Umbrella and a few beers. Ten if you have a bigger smoker maybe a big thick metaled Lang or something like that. I would recommend you to smoke on and it will just take alittle bit longer.

Make sure the blanket is wool it's naturally fire resistant.Seen it on pitmasters too.

I'm fortunate to have a 12' x 50' covered back patio that my smokers are on.
