Winter Smoking - Show Me Your Set-up

Although we've had a couple of comedians post pictures of the horrible conditions in tropical regions, @bpegler @mi000ke, my situation isn't nearly as traumatic as theirs!!

We are currently seeing temps dipping into the 50s and will drop to as low as 40 in January. Consequently, I still smoke in my back yard, usually with a wood fire, as pictured below. The extra chairs are for the family to make SMORES tonight.



We do get 50+ MPH winds during this time of year, and that drives me into the garage, where I have a small 360° space heater I place between me and my BOTLs.

Oh yeah, I also wear long pants and occasionally a sweater.


There is a thin line between paranoid and prepared.

Ha Ha! If you're ever in my neighborhood, let me know and I'll make it up to you. I have plenty of cigars here to share and a few extra beach chairs

Ditto if you are ever in the Seattle area

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.

Those work good but the more shelter you have around you the better. At least get out of the wind. If you run it on high you'll get 3 or 4 churchills per 20 lb cylinder.

If it looks bad, smells bad and tastes bad, it's too late...

Been planning to make a permanent Shelter From The Wind and Rain. These heaters work great as long as it's not blowing. I prefer a wood fire but it really sets off my wife's asthma these days.

I had one of these:

And one of these:

That kept us toasty until the wind ripped the stakes out of the ground. Now I go to a BOTLs house who has the same heater and tarps set up under his deck. The only issue is smoke ventilation. Need to create a vent up high to evacuate the smoke along with the excess heat. fyi, the tent was fine until winds hit 30 MPH on thanksgiving morning. (Sand bags on the feet and hairpin rebar stakes)

How’s this for a winter set up? Some beaver dams I snowshoed to. Had some frog Morton on the bayou later.

I use one of those heaters in the shed. It is to cold in the open unless you are close enough to almost catch fire, but works great in the shed.
