Rain Hood

Post  Merry on Mon Feb 21, 2011 11:37 pm

Hi all,

Now that my Pro Q Frontier is out of warranty, I plan to make a rain hood to cover the top vent so that, while I'm cold smoking in winter, the bottom of my smoker doesn't fill up with rain water (it has to run for about 36 hours to smoke bacon [pork loins]).

I'll start with a simple aluminium sheet, 25cm x 25cm (8in x 8in ish), notched with a 6cm x 2cm slit to accommodate the handle on top of the lid, curved to fit the profile and blind (pop) riveted at four points (two each side of the handle to secure it to the lid to cover the air vent.

I'll let you know how it goes...

Well it's done! My Frontier is now sporting an aluminium baseball cap peak over the top vent. It's raining again and my Gloucester Old Spot bacon is smoking happily away, completely dry! Smile

I'm thinking of building something for my cookers do you have any photos?
