Some of you saw my mesh sink strainer over my MES 30 exhaust vent before, and wondered why.
For the last few weeks, every time I take the cover off, I have to get rid of a bunch of Stink Bugs.
They can't get in anywhere, if I have everything closed up & plugged, when it's not in use.
They probably wouldn't want to get in when it's running hot either, but when you are cold-smoking, they could walk right in that vent. If you don't want the extra "Stinky" meat, this is one way to solve that problem.
It's in the Mods thread, but I didn't have a picture of how they line up on the smoker then.
It also seems they like that digital control the best!
Very glad I don't live in your part of the country. If we had bugs of that size in that volume my wife would demand we move to where we live now.
