kind of an odd question - but with limited space on the deck for the smoker I was wondering about how much clearance I should be looking at from either the siding on the house - or the decking. I have an ideal location I want to place it, since it's very protected from rain and all but the worst of wind gusts. But, it would place the back of the smoker about one foot away from the siding on my house.
My siding is that cement board stuff.
with the generally lower temps of a smoker - I'm wondering if that's enough space, or if I should be working on a heat shield or a different location.
