    Welcome to the forum!

    It could be a couple things. The easiest thing to try is to run the stove at a higher temp when it's windy. This will make it harder for the wind to push the smoke down the flue.

    As far as fixing the problem, you haven't given us much information to go off of. Tell us about the chimney and how is it situated on the house? Are there any or hills in the immediate area?
