Discussion in 'Slicers, Grinders, Tools, Equipment' started by phonedrn8, May 8, 2019.

  1. Question what kind of lighting set up for your grill smoker ? Looking for something simple and bright. I was thing about getting a torch lamp from el cheap-o. Store

    How about a head lamp on the top of your head.

    $20 or less for a decent head lamp and you will find your self using it for more than smoking at night ,another option is a pedestal lite with 3 swivel lites. Just put Led lites up in the carport and hooked up a Hyper Tough wireless remote to turn them on and off with.

    I put a couple of spotlights on the side of my house that light up the smoker area.
    Previous to that I used a headlamp.

    I use a headlamp, also got some high powered flash lights I just prop up as needed..

    Though my smoker is on the porch or behind the garage where the lights are..so I guess that is cheating. I do suggest a headlamp though, you can't really go wrong owning on..especially if you own dogs who like to go outside at night alot!

    I have rope lights around my smoker stand but at times use a portable light also.
     
  7. I have always just used a mini flashlight. Probably should use something better\easier.

    Agree with head-lamps. I also use flashlights.

    Flashlights are used for detailed peeking. Headlamps for general smoker work.
