what does everyone do to keep the rain off their electric smokers when it's miserable outside.
Here is what I came up with
I keep my MES in my shed, which is big enough for me do some smoking in and I have ran electricity from the house to the shed.
I run the smoker off the shed hydro when it is nicer weather. Some day I will totally rewire the inside of the shed, simply mind you to give me light on switch and 2 plugs on the walls and maybe a covered on the side where the BBQ and Smoker sit in better weather. The BBQ itself, sits under a lean too, which is nothing but 2 4x4s stuck in holder that were designed for a 4 post pergola, I use the two closest to the shed. Across those I put a 2x6, nailed and bolted to the side of the uprights. This cross member is 4 foot 5 inches from the shed roof overhang. So across that span, under which the BBQ sits, I put up about 15 to 18 6 foot fence boards, pushed them tight together and screwed them to overhang top and the board I have hanging across the uprights. This can be seen in the video below-.
Now the only thing I have changed back there since this video was shot earlier this summer, that Star on shed doors, When it opened, used to get me all the time. I have no moved it, it is on the right hand door, never to injure anybody again
