When I was competing I had my WSMs under a canopy all the thyme. I see no problem.

How bout a kettle? Given the chimney is lit elsewhere.

Sure.  What are you worried about?  Hold your hand over the cooker.  If your hand doesn't melt off, it'll be fine for a 8-10 foot tent.  If it's the smoke your worried about, just keep the side panels off the EZ up and you'll be fine.

Unless you have 6 foot tall flames coming from your cooking device, you be just fine. :)

I've seen more than one ez up style tent go up in flames at a contest. I doubt if they were WSMs that caused it, but it could happen while dumping a chimney. All sealed up and smoking you should be fine.

They don't handle wind very well at all...

But I have used my stickburner and kettles under them with no problem...

I have used them canopies many times with the 22 WSM during rain and never had a problem. As said above, maybe dumping a chimney with Lump or good charcoal that sparks a lot may not be good. The times I used it I already had the cooker going and put the canopy over it after it was fired up and temp was set in. I used sand bags on the legs as it was sitting on a concrete apron in front of my garage during the cook

The slant leg style canopies do not handle wind as well as the straight leg counterparts.  But I have cooked under them in rain at comps with FECs, BGE, Drums and a Shirley fab off set.  Have not burnt one down yet.  I have been at a comp when one went up and a kettle corn guy set one on fire at a farmers market.  When they do catch, man you are down the the frame quick.  lol
