It's supposed to rain all weekend. Was thinking of putting the smoker (MES 40 Gen 1) near the edge of the garage, but still under cover. I don't think that's far enough out to vent the smoke though. Has anyone ever put an elbow vent on and then run a dryer vent hose outside of the garage? Would the vent need to be elevated or can I let it drop and run along the floor of the garage/driveway? Thanks in advance for any advice!
