Question - Smoking in the wind .....

OK so today I was smoking and it was a little breezy. When I put my cigar in the ashtray should I put the foot towards the wind or the cap ? My burn was a little funky today and I wasn't sure what works best.

    In a word, don't bother. Oh, wait, that's two words, isn't it? Anyway, I have yet to find a way to smoke in the wind and not have issues of one sort or another. If it's windy I go smoke in the garage.

    It wasn't all that windy just a nice breeze.......maybe 5 mph or so ... seemed like it might have affected my burn but I wasn't sure what everyone else does (or should I just correct as needed and enjoy my smoke?)

    Try to keep rotating the cigar around. Wind is funny but turning it helps. Also when one side is starting to tunnel keep it up not down. I know it is counter intuitive but it will help even it out.

    Keep the side that's burning faster up? Or the slower side? Cuz I've always put the slower side up but I was just guessing.

    Yes, the faster side up will help even out the burn as long as you continue to smoke at a normal (slow) pace. It will help.
