Man this wind is not my friend right now, I lost about 80 degs between wind and trying too hard to maintain my temps, Im going to reset my fire and try again straight from the top.

I had that problem last weekend keeping my temp up, It rained and wind was blowing.

Good Luck today!

Bishop, can't tell what kind of smoker you have, but if you have a chimney, what I did was take the cap off and put a piece of dryer vent on it and bend and it away from the wind. On windy days it would blow right down the stack and out the fire box. this took care of that problem.
1st pic is the extented stack.

Yeah the view had been halted, I was in a real panic re; temp loss... it seems that the RO lump was not giving me the kind of love i had expected. Resetting with lump left me @ 190ish, (again) - I reset at the transition to the ribs, this time with Kingsford, temps are in the upper 220's - so yeah i dunno lol

Pics soon...
