    I was planning on smoking some rainbow trout but the wind is blowing here at about 20mph plus. Will it effect the quality of the smoking session? I will be using a Bradley Electric Smoker.

    If you can set up some sort of windbreak around the smoker so it will block it? this will help to keep a more consistant temp in the smoker. Search windbreak/redneck windbreak and you will see some that others have done!!!!!!!!!!Good Luck...[​IMG]

    You can toss a blanket over the unit too. Make sure it's not a synthetic cloth tho... that could get REAL messy. I use a chunk of natural sisal fiber carpet.

    But up a wind break or if you can move the smoker to an area out of the wind that is sheltered..........

    Wind can suck the heat out of a smoker even quicker then cold can. Windbreask works great and you can build one out of a couple spare pieces of plywood and some hinges.
