View Full Version : 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!

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!78073
