I will be setting up my first BGE in the next couple of weeks. I have a covered porch whose ceiling is 11' above the deck. Will the exhaust from the grill cause a problem on my painted, concrete ceiling? If more practical, I could place the BGE beside the railing (instead of next to an interior brick wall) to give the smoke a better chance of not being trapped under the ceiling.
A third option is placing the grill on an unenclosed pergola whose rafters are about 13-14 feet above the deck if necessary...but the location is not as close to the back door, but and the egg will be open to the elements.
What do you think?
