3 Days?? Aw Pishtaw. Rain ain't nothin'. I've learned to take steps to insure that I can smoke any darn day I want. I've created a shelter about 22 feet long and 16 feet wide, built out of 3/4" conduit and heavy tarps with a decent slope. It's sheltered from the winds. Roof Ends are also anchored to building structure. Vertical poles are anchored in concrete blocks. When winter comes, I add 4x4's reaching from the deck to the peaks to handle the snow. One of these years I might even add a real roof over the area, but.....I got a lot of things doing.....It's tough being retired.....too many distractions. This works just fine. When I go out on the road with my travel trailer, my WSM goes with me, of course. Through up a 10x10 canopy with extra sections of tarp to wind block the sides, hey we're cooking now. When I was on the job, we called these hooches. When I was a member of Uncle Sam's Camping Program (deployed to the field, we called these shelters). Adaptation is the name of the game.
Now, what was your question?
