I have been wrestling in my mind about erecting a makeshift Teepee to smoke in for those cold and wet nights. Pros:
Low cost
Fire pit for warmth
Shelter from the rain and snow 
Privacy 

Cons:
The Wife might make stay in it.

Has anyone tried this before?
Thoughts please.

    With enough room on your property I think it'd be a great idea. From what I've read, the plains Indians lived in them for many generations so they must be a workable idea....  

    Just be sure it's large enough so your easy chair isn't too close to the fire.....  :p

    Sounds like a really neat idea, would love to see pics if it comes together for you!

    We had a large teepee when I was a kid.  Dad just used poles and blue tarps, we had all kinds of fun in it of course.  We slept in it all the time.
    As for the wife might make you stay in it.......well.....make it comfortable, just in case lol

    @webmost No garage right now, we have been renting, however, we have stared house hunting, one of the things we have looked for at each property is a comfortable place to smoke, or have a smoking room.

    I say do it! It's a great idea, and agree with guys, but would like to add, concerning your "cons" list: A smoking teepee is far better than the dog house... So if you're gonna be in one, might as well be a warm spot with your cigars!!

    Yevvergetuphere, drop by my cedar lined smoking porch, we'll burn a few. For me, it's that, the garage, or in frigid weather beside the hearth where the fire draws the smoke up the flue.
