For wind protection alone, wrapping the pit with common
fiberglass insulation backed with foil and held together by duct tape
can be draped, foil side out, over any size pit, reducing heat loss
with good effect. A very effective, neat and portable cover for
bullets, kettles and such was made by John McEachren and his Hog Wild
team of Canadians. It is made of panels of corrugated paper, painted
for strength and preservation, which assembles around the cookers -
in this case two bullets. The top and front are removable. It
disassembles for storage and transportation. The photo show two
bullets peeking out of the black hole bordered by vertical wooden
members which are driven into the ground. The front is removed. The
right side is obstructed by another cooker. I apologize for the
photograph and hope to show a better one soon.
While this is very effective for the pits, it offers no
protection for the cook and hanging around the pit is a major part of
the fun. So your comfort while enjoying year round cooking will
require some ingenuity on your part. If you will send me photos of
your solutions to foul weather cooking, I will share them.
