The temperature here in the nether regions of Western NYS has been hovering in the mid-80's the last two days - perfect weather, no clouds, blue sky, moderate winds. Perfect for firing up the WSM for the first time in a few months.
My five year old son has made it known that he wants me to make some ribs this weekend. I've promised so there's no going back. Trouble is, weather reports for the weekend are saying rain - lots of rain - all weekend.
I can't fire up the WSM in the garage - that's unsafe. No other shelter available, really, other than my wind screen. Does rain really affect the performance of the smoker like wind does? Has anyone run their WSM in a steady rain? Any tips?
Thanks for any advise. It's good to be back...
