I'm doing something similar as each row of lights is on an alternating circuit with a dimmer. I'll have two outdoor rated ceiling fans and outlets in and outside the utility closet (not yet built). I'm also having a floor drain installed next to the smoker which will tie into the gutter drains. I hadn't thought about having TV out there, but now that you mention it... hmmmm.

My old carport had a flat metal roof. I never had a problem when it was just my grill or the small upright dual-fuel smoker, but after I got the Klose BYC in there, the volume of smoke hitting the low ceiling started turning it black. That was made worse when condensation on the underside turned it into black rain. I was able to remedy that by adding a smoke stack extension which took the smoke out and above the carport.
