Do you have a Jacket for GMG? are they worth the money?

If you intend to cook on a GMG over the winter more than 4 or 5 times they will probably save you money.

Hi Paul, they only way your Gazebo will offer protection, is from the rain, if it has sides then that could shield the wind. ☔️❄️☁️⚡️

I'm thinking something along these lines, but with guy ropes to secure it.

Yes that would help. You would not believe the temperature difference we get in our Hog Roast Ovens, due to the time of year. Our ovens are always in the trailer while cooking, so no wind etc. The same gas setting, one burner on full, winter 125-130'C, summer 190-200'C

Do be aware that a gazebo with sides is going to be very susceptible to wind and has the potential to turn into a kite and blow away very easily, I have had this happen to me on a few occasions even when guy roped down. These days I just buy a cheap £17 one from Argos, don't bother about the sides and screw it to my fence, and when it does get trashed by the wind, buy another one.

 

I wasn't being a joker when I said get a gazebo, having one means you can bbq in rain or shine. IMO I wouldn't rely on one for wind protection or heat insulation though.

Oh, I'm aware of flying gazebos. Seen many of them at various festivals over the years (non mine). It would be well pegged if I went down that route. Living right on the edge of that expanse of countryside does give me a lot of wind (Carry on jokes opportunity) but as this will be the first year with the Q,I'll see what temperature difference I get.

That's just nuts.

Have a look here at what some WSM users do for insulation

It might give you a few ideas
