If it's exposed to the elements, you might want to place a plumping pipe elbow over the smoke hole on top. If it's raining hard, it'll keep the water off your meat and still let the smoke escape. Otherwise, smoke on.
Be careful, if you fully cover the hole you'll chair the air flow a lot. You need to leave a gap above the hole for airflow. Think more "cap" a couple of inches above the hole, not directly on it.
