Why would one want to get all bundled up just to go out and 'monitor the smoker'...by which I, of course, mean have a few drinks and/or a cigar...If the garage has a vent, you don't have to let all that cold air in  ;D

In a perfect world, having a permanent spot with a hood/exhaust fan, but this may be more work than some people want to put in.

I frequently travel with mine, so a permanent option would not work for me, unless I someday spring for a 3D. ;)

The garage is detached, so the cold air is already there. And if you have a Maverick, or other wireless thermometer, then there's no having to go out to the garage for monitoring. Unless you need an excuse to get out of the house for whatever reason!

My 3 is set up in a detached garage. It's placed next to a window that has an exhaust fan set up. Maverick 732 and all is good.
