$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.

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.
