I have a friend that said she put quilts all over hers when hers wouldn't not come up to temp due to the "chill" in the air. I can't say I'd recommend this without having first tried it myself - BUT she said she did it.

Is there such a thing as a fire-proof type "blanket" - maybe from the hardware store?

Welding and packing blankets are used.

Packing blankets, like "moving" blankets?

Yes, like moving blankets. Actually, that's what my friend used versus quilts. I asked her and she said quilts then upon further questioning she said they were packing blankets which can also be called packing quilts around here.

If you can find a metal drum type barrel, cut out a third of the side (large enough to set your smoker inside on the bottom of the barrel leaving the top open. That should cut down on the blizzard ruining your dinner. Our park district has these type of barrels and yours may too. They could probably tell you where to get one. Sears sell small grinding tools that will cut through the barrel. A neighbor did something like this; I know because he borrowed our grinder.

The neighbor across the street used to cook outside all winter. Could see his flames from the overpass on the highway. Since he remodeled his house, the smoker is no more.
