Does the wind make it more difficult to keep the temps down? I wasn't cooking, just seasoning so it didn't hurt anything.
on mines, i have a lot of gaps around the lid, and when the wind isn't blowing, smoke comes out of the gaps, but when the wind is blowing, i am pretty sure it is forcing itself into the gaps and into the drum. I had a lot of trouble keeping a low temp while the wind was blowing the other day. I need to seal it up better.
