So I have to be honest. When I read your post, I kinda' thought, 'ya windy whatever'.
Well, here in Southern Wisconsin at 10:00 pm, the wind picked up and is like I have never seen or heard before. I have a very large Isokern fireplace and with a 12 inch flue, I heard the wind playing my chimney like a jug band! Then while we were watching a movie, the pressures outside actually lifted and banged my flue which is cast iron.
Wow is it windy.
Hope the Chuckie turned out and the smoker did not succumb to the wind
Thanks for posting!
