Had something similar occur several years ago.
I noticed that the lights dimmed, briefly, and went outside to have a look around.
There is a dogwood tree adjacent to the corner of the house to which the power service drop lines are attached.
Squirrels seem to find the dogwood berries irresistible.
I observed an expired critter with its jaws around the top power wire, its front legs resting on the middle wire and its hind legs resting on the bottom wire. Apparently, he wanted his meal warmed up a bit.

What kind of smoker? No I'm not going to try and sell you a Yoder. I have a Fireboard wireless thermometer system and they make a little device to regulate the temp in most any device that is fairly cheap. Cheaper than a new smoker by a long shot.
Pit Barrel Cooker...

If there is a bottom air vent then this just might work for you. Snap-on Blower 20 CFM

You would need a Fireboard thermometer and a temp probe plus the controller cable, but you should be able to use less fuel for a lower temp and the blower would bring it to the temp you want.

If you look at the bottom in the middle it has a round plate that covers a round hole, you open that up and put rebar in or our of the top holes to control temp. I always run mine as closed as it will get and 300 is about as low as it goes.

It's a good, no fuss no thinking type of unit which I like. It inejcts good smoke flavor into any food cooked on it, but if your piece of meat is too small it will cook it too fast and the fat won't quite render out like you want. Maybe one day I'll upgrade to a better smoker, I have a cousin who has 5 or 6 right now and does competitions and what not.

I make meals like this for a reason. Someone once asked me why I drink no calorie soda. Simple answer: So I can eat real cake. Same thing with a light meal like this. Bring on the burgers tomorrow night. 😆

How much would you have enjoyed that risotto if the cheddar cheese had been omitted?
My wife does all kind of risotto... I eat all of them with no second thoughts because they are all delicious. I LOVE cheese, so I am the type to add it to anything if I can. I also quite like broccoli, it's one of my go to veggies on the grill, baked with some lemon and rosemary, steamed, etc.

Burgers are on the grill and french fries are in the air fryer. In about 12 minutes it will be supper time.

Whenever I grill anything the dogs have learned that they are not allowed out until after the grilling is done. No one wants dog slobber on the grilling utensils and they hang from the grill shelf. Once the food is done, then they are allowed out to lick up any drippings on the deck.

Great minds think alike. That's what's on my grill tonight.

Sad I don't have an air fryer, but the Korean barbecue sauce and goat cheese will be on duty for the burgers.

Whenever I'd grill beef, my dog would start drooling.

This dog has just a mild case:

Ours used to too, before we lost her last year. Now I have to drool for the both of us.:)

This is my air fryer. Wanted a second oven and I am not going to totally redo the kitchen just to put in a double oven and this works as a great substitute. It provides me a second oven, broiler, an air fryer, a dehydrator, proofer and even a slow cooker. Whole lit cheaper than 30K to redo a perfectly good kitchen.

Hmm, Wikipedia (the go-to source for the repository of human knowledge nowadays) says:

The taste and consistency of foods cooked using traditional fried methods compared with air fried techniques are not identical, because the larger quantity of oil used in traditional frying penetrates the foods (or the coating batter, if it is used) and adds its own flavor.
Obviously it's healthier because it uses less oil, but how would you say the taste compares to real deep frying?
