Windy temp control

  1. Ok so I know it's Thanksgiving and most will prob be posting pics and what not but I have a question.

    Is there a good remedy for temp fluctuation in windy areas. I live in CO and I usually smoke at my in laws ranch. Everything goes great until the sun comes up which kicks up the wind and then my temps start to go nuts. Is there anything you guys recommend besides putting up wind breaks or moving to maybe the barn?
  2. PS...I'm doing a turkey, turkey breast and 4 racks of ribs today. ;)

    I'd do the barn, when I'am smoking when it's windy I'll often times just pull my smoker just inside the garage ! If it's hard to move the smoker, ya have any hay or straw bales for a wind break ?

    Can't fit vehicles in our garage! Therefore the smoker sits by the door best way to go you never know when it's gonna rain or snow.
  5. I hadn't thought about bails. Unfortunately we sold them all already. I'll have to remember that next year when we bail the wheat straw.
