    Finally after receiving a missing part a couple of weeks ago i had chance to finish off my smoking shelter, it rains here A LOT so this makes me happy as i don't have to worry about it now :)

    Just enough room to squeeze the ECB in next week :)

  2. Great job Sir! I like it. How much do you think something like that would run me?

    I've seen plans for a wooden structure with a vented roof. Was thinking of something like that for myself one of these days. Yours looks like it could be a bit more practical for someone with my skill sets (or lack thereof I should say).

    I picked it up as an end of season clearance and paid £169 ($300) after 70% discount.

    I think they originate in the US, hopefully someone can point you to somewhere you can find one.

    Looks good for rain , is it sturdy enough for some snow on the roof ? We get a bit of that here in NY

    Ahh , just looked at the pic again , nope , a good 3 season shelter though !!!

    No it isn't, however the most snow i have seen here in the last 10 years was about 3" which only lasted for a day or so. If it is forecast it only takes the removal of 10 screws and the whole roof section will lift off.

    I think one of the other versions i have seen has 4 full length posts which can tolerate snow loads.

    Neat lookin outfit, now all ya need be the microwave, party lights an a beer tapper! Maybe a pole fer the dancin girls?!
     
  10. nice one.
    yeah rain does tend to put off the fainthearted bbq wimp. Nice solution :)
    where'd you get it ? online or at a shop.
    Although I can't think of anywhere I could put it.

    But i do need another pop up awning - the one I got for £20 last year got damaged during Slingfest uk 08 (yes david and goliath type slings. It was a tad windy)

    sweet i like it i've been working on mine since spring just about ready so we can smoke all winter[​IMG]
     
  12. Great looking shelter. I currently have a ladder with an umbrella duck taped to it protecting mine from the storm that has blown into Tahoe. When i put the brisket on this morning at 4:45am there was 20 mph winds and driving rain but it has slowly improved throughout the day. The makeshift shelter seems to be holding up well so far.

    I wish i had a digital camera here at the house so I could provide qview of this duck tape masterpiece.
