Smoker chimney?

    So I have built a smoker from 2 gas tanks, based on Franklyn BBQ's online tutorial. The smoker itself is perfect, I get as good a rib and brisket as I could hope for, my only problem is the smoke itself.

    I have a business with an enclosed back yard where the smoker is housed. I need to figure out how to get the smoke to raise above the 2 storey building so it gets out of the yard, otherwise it just hangs there.

    If I build a chimney, will the smoke rise thru it or is this going to be a waste of time? would a small fan inside the chimney help?

    Any advice welcome! Thanks
