Never take a 5 year old into the back yard while a smoker is going. Not because they might burn themselves, but because every time you turn your back for a moment to do something that makes the backyard more aesthetic, you turn back around to see that the kid has opened the smoker door (didn't lose too much heat and damn that poultry is looking good), or they are starting to mess with the propane tank knob. So much for outdoor time today.

When we build the expansion onto the patio for the grill and smoker, three side will be enclosed by fencing to serve as a wind/kid barrier, and I may do something about the third side. I also think the ability to pull a tarp over the top for a rain shelter would be good, but I'll get the foundation done before I bother figuring out what color tarp goes best with my smoker.

Time to rotate the racks, since the kids are inside and won't try to "help".
