Smoking question

Ok here's a smoking question I have.

Ok, if I want to do my first smoke during the winter time and I have a gorage I can barrow ( my brothers ), will that work as long as the door stay's open?

Your brother doesn't mind a garage that smells like smoke?

Actually, it's not a good idea. Even though there's no open flame, an unattended fire in a structure, even with the door open, is dangerous. Any number of unforeseen things can happen. (Wind, curious kids or animals, flammable fumes) Aside from any possible injuries, a garage burned down from an active smoker might not be covered by his insurance policy. A smoker falls outside of the ordinary use of a garage, while a wooden deck would be OK. (Go figure!)

I'm jealous of your smoker Chili.. Hope you saved some of your bbq sauce for it! :)

Does your brother have a patio that's covered? Not closed up just something over head to protect the extension cord and the actual smoker from the rain and moisture.

Casper Improved linked a few sites a while back that I had book marked. Great sites, gave me plenty of new ideas to try.

I would be fully attenting the smoker, and taking turns with my brother. By the way if it's wood chips he doesn't mind. I've all ready asked him.

If you're going to attend it at all times, then rig up a standby water hose, get your favorite beverage and go for it...

Thank you Chef Munky, And yes he actually has a grilling patio built for grilling. I may ask him about it.

Thanks Munky, He said we can smoke on the grilling patio.

I'm very excited, We're going to smoke as soon as I go down to Ann Arbor, Mi, Which is next week on the 13th.


We're going to do mac & cheese, And Cornish hens, whole chicken first with hickory chips.
