    If you can keep your wood/charcoal cooker steady below _______ degrees on a windy day you're doing good.

    These answers will vary widely due to how insulated and tight your cooker is but i'm curious as to the answers.

    Or above____  degrees on a windy day. I find that a strong wind will often knock down a wood/charcoal fire and make it difficult to keep temps up where I want them. I try to keep the intakes facing the wind direction, if cooking with the CharGriller, on windy days. If I am BBQing on the kettle windy conditions don't seem to matter very much.

    I have trouble keeping my temp below 300. But I'm still working on it. The build I chose is very efficient and is difficult to keep down when using wood. That is why most with my style use charcoal. Wood free charcoal not.
