    If the vent is facing the wind you might get higher temps than normal, but other than that, if you can take the wind, it should be OK.

    As long as the wind is not so strong it is dangerous to be out side, I use the egg. I don't worry about the direction of the wind unless I can not control the temp, which has never happened (so far).

    not too windy and if you do not fire it up, you will need another excuse at adult beverage time.

    The egg in wind is somewhat like a pick-up. Stuff in the back near the cab is protected from the wind. Just make sure the opening in bottom vent is away from the wind.

    Now if a tornado comes a callin' make sure you protect that egg at all cost... :woohoo:

    You can safely bump the temp up to 250 dome for the ribs

    Maybe he's on the wrong coast and three hours behind. ;)

    Maybe he's like me and eats breakfast at 4PM. :P

    Maybe he just likes ribs before bed.. :sick:

    Maybe he's just trying to get Wess riled up more.. :woohoo:

    Maybe he forgot it will take 5 hours to cook them ribs... :laugh:
  • We did our brisket cook this weekend in 45 MPH winds. We had to closely monitor the temp (but it was our 1st ever cook too). Everything came out fine.
