]84My Smokintex 1400 just survived Hurricane Irene. Okay it was only a catagory 1 and we didn't lose power. We live just outside
the Washington DC area and I smoked a brisket for our Hurricane party. I figured if we lost power before it was over I could finish it off in the gas oven. Good
thing ]that didn't happen because the range is gas but the oven is electric.

I had to cover the exhaust hole with a foil hood to keep the heavy rain out, but all worked just fine. The brisket was awesome!

Yah. But you guys had like 10" of rain. We're still going through a record drought here. Glad to here everything is ok though. I lived in Houston through one hurricane. Don't want to do it again.
