Ok, well now that I'm hooked and love using the smoker, I'm looking for ways to make it easier to do year round. I live in western NY state so winters and wind can sometimes be a limiting factor. I got through last winter by building what is supposed to be a temporary wind screen on 3 sides, but my woodworking shop is only a few feet from where the smoker is. So this go me to thinking about taking it inside for the winter.
I think I've seen where other folks have their smoker in their garage. How do you keep everything from smelling like a smokehouse? How much of an exhaust system would it take to be able to do this?
Or should I just go back to my original plan of building a more permanent "house" for it outside? Basically I was going to build an outhouse and stick it in that. :) Kind of a conversation piece when not using the smoker. hehehe
