So im contemplating if I should build a door for the burner compartment.

The wood chip pan seals off the upper section to the lower compartment so I shouldn't have any heat loss.

Im curious if the burner setup I have from northern tools is ok to be in a inclosed area at higher temps?

The only problem I for see with the set up I have, is in windy conditions the burner maybe blown out!

 

What are your thoughts!

Yeah! otherwise a huge amount of your heat is going to be wasted. Especially on a windy day. As long as you don't have a baffle that isn't too restrictive the area around the burner shouldn't be all that hot. Mine was very cool around the area of the hose etc.
