    As long as there’s no wind... That E-Zup doesn’t look to have any weight attached. ;-)

    Wait, wut? Never smoked in the rain before? Pretty sure those of us in the Pacific Northwest don’t understand the words that you are saying ;-)

    I’ve smoked in the rain before - successfully. Only catch was I had to add a LOT more wood to keep the temps up.

    All steel with 100 mph plus wind load. Covers a 20' X 10' patio.

    Nice. I need to do that. $2,800 is less than I would have guessed.

    I took care of rain/snow concerns last year. Only took $2,800 to keep me dry.

    Do you have a Weber 22" lid? If yes rest it on top of the PBC - it makes a perfect sized "umbrella" without messing with airflow.

    yeah cuz we know how accurate those weather forecasts are to begin with.....

    I can move food around and survive a rain on my cookers while being used. The issue is not cleaning them immediately. If it's sunny and hot the next morning, the wet ash from water coming in the chimney turns to cement. I hate that... Same in the ash catchers on Weber kettles.

    The chicken, well, I'd eat that! What's the green stuff? LoL

    I had a dog that LOVED peas - go figure...

    I think northern south American Indians invented adobe bricks 4500 years ago from the ash and water accumulated in their Weber ash baskets during rain - little known true fact.

    We need rain to put out the wild fires. The fires burned up several towns. 40K displaced, 17 dead.

    Thankfully, the rain tapered off and then stopped. Chicken came out just fine. I just gotta watch that weather forecast a bit closer!

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
