If you can find a metal drum type barrel, cut out a third of the side (large enough to set your smoker inside on the bottom of the barrel leaving the top open. That should cut down on the blizzard ruining your dinner. Our park district has these type of barrels and yours may too. They could probably tell you where to get one. Sears sell small grinding tools that will cut through the barrel. A neighbor did something like this; I know because he borrowed our grinder.
The neighbor across the street used to cook outside all winter. Could see his flames from the overpass on the highway. Since he remodeled his house, the smoker is no more.
