I live in Missouri and my back porch faces North. I have the Brinkmann Trailmaster Vertical Smoker, winters can get rough around here and two years ago when I had a different smoker that was protected from the winds it was hard to regulate tempatures. I'm looking for advice what you all think would help.
LF some advice

I'm from Alaska. Also rough winters. I smoked all winter by wrapping an old blanket around my smoker and securing with a bungee cord. If your're hardcore enough to smoke in cold weather AND winds a cardboard box slipped over the smoker is helpful. Experiment a bit when the weather hits. I poked a hole in my fridge smoker and used a thermometer with a 6 inch probe to check smoker temps. Just poked it through the blanket and into the smoker. Sorry, no Q views of my winter smoking adventures but, here's a beer brat for ya ;)
