What do you use or have for a shelter for your cooker. I used to have a area in a carport for my cooker, But that has been taken for other things. I had a six leg canopy. But the wind liked to move it around. So what do you have ? I would really like to have a concrete base with a roof overhead to keep the rain and snow off of my cooker.
Thanks Scott

It takes a lot of wind to move ours. It also takes a lot of gasoline to move it. probably not what you are looking for though.

I've gone through a few elcheapo canopies, then a couple of these metal frame Gazebos over the last few years.











The wind and snow are no match for them. This last snowfall did it for me, and I'm getting serious about building a storage shed with a covered roof on each side and possibly an awning in front. It even has my wifes nod of approval (and she gets the deck back). Vermont or Washington, the weather sometimes doesn't cooperate.

Zilla has one nice shelter for his pit that I'm fond of, and he has pics of the build in his tagline.

My BGE, UDS, and Gasser on on the uncovered deck and patio which looks kinda like this right now...







I'm planning to build a 12 x 12 shed this summer for storage...hopefully!

...They come out to play during competition season and occasionally when I do a BBQ for the folks where I work. During the off season I use my BGE and Gasser for the most part.

I highly recommend them for doing great BBQ!

I have been thinking about moving my GOSM into my shed for the winter and windy days. Anyone have thoughts about how it would work if I built and mounted a kitchen exhaust hood over top of of the GOSM and duct it out of the shed for smoke removal?

Well I use part of my deck for my Q shack. Started with 8X8 then added another sheet of plywood and two more posts so now I have an 8X12 shack. I also use two tarps just to make sure there is less chance of getting a leak since I cook alot in the rain and don't want the stuff under it rained on. It has a nice bench to sit on and store stuff in the back and the added lights make it easier to grill in the dark rainy winter evenings. We get pretty windy up here in the mountains but (knock on wood) no problems with weather so far, it has come through like a trooper in the wind, rain and snow.

I like Barbarian's shelter, if only I had the room in my little City Yard...

I have had one of those Pop-up tents used in the yard for about 3 summers, this fall though it finally gave out due to rain and wind.

Now I use a Beach umbrella mod...

Lets see what next summer brings.

That might be the ticket Barbarian!

I'll move back to Maui on the Sunny South Shore in Kihei, no rain, no snow, no worries.
