I am new to the forum and I am sure this question has been asked numerous times before as with most questions on a forum. Because of this I appreciate the replys that you give. I have looked at numerous other posts and have not found my answer yet. What I am trying to do is I just purchased a Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker and LOVE it. However, I live in the midwest and know snow is just around the bend. Because of this I am told it is very difficult to keep temperature during the winter. I currently have a 20x10 Tough Shed that is not being used. I figured I would turn this into a smokers shed and put a mini fridge, maybe a chair inside there for all my smoking pleasure. I am sure it wouldnt cost much to add insulation and dry wall to this empty shed. Because of this I was wondering if anyone smoked in a shed before? The shed already has a window in it with a few different air vents.
My worry is the possibility of a lack of air control which leads to a large amount of carbon dioxide. Secondly my worry would be the possibility of a fire. I would make sure I had a fire/carbon alarm inside and a fire extinguisher. However, I am worried about how hot the smoker might get. Given the bottom of the shed is wood I would have to create like a cement base or something of the sort for the smoker to sit on. This would possibly eliminate the heat that is created from the base. I am not sure what to do regarding eliminating the carbon dioxide. Maybe a fan or try to think of an exhaust system. Any help would be greatly appreciated and if you have pictures would be double appreciated.
