Default Windy day

Wind gusts up to 32 mph. Constant at 15-18.
So help me BBQgod!
Had the smoker getting up to temp while I was inside touching up 20 lbs of butt. Just get out there to slap the butts on there, WHAM! My lid flew off and my drum is a blazing cannon. Luckily I was out there to address this problem very quickly.
Hope this works!

Rig up some sort of wind block or move to the other side of the house!

The people hauler(Minivan) was moved accordingly to help as a wind break.
The only place for the smoker is in driveway or back deck. Both of which face east and west. The sides are on like what seems a 50 degree decline. Wind is from the south.
Thanks a lot bludawg for sending the wind this way!
Temps were alittle rough but I feel I was able to control it. The results look amazazing! Foiled now..birthday party starts at 5.
Theres a jumphouse(Hope wind dies down like its supposed to) and a facepainter/balloon maker. Come on over, teehee!20130406_140337.jpg
