If just having a chimney you need a good sized and well shaped "witches hat" on top to assist the draw.
Agreed.  Two years ago we had an audit on the furnaces where I work, and the guy told us to get rid of the weather cap on top the smoke stack, and replace it with a weather sleeve.  Basically a  large diameter pipe that is place over the top of the chimney with a few spokes.  Rainfall never fall down completely straight and will be captured in the outer pipe and run down the sides.  The 'sleeve' adds air from the bottom and vents the smoke higher up. as per attached diagrams.  There are Australian standards for the design but basically the sleeve is one ince large than than your chimney and height is 4 x the diameter of the chimney.
Weather caps vent the smoke horizontally.

The other thing I forgot is to say that most of the tar and gum is in the sap ring under the bark of the tree.
Another reason to have well seasoned timber as older standing dead timber often has the sap of the tree eroded away!

Not aware of any type of thing to hide smoke or a diffuser. But if you are in the middle of 100 acres that has at least some bush around, for some one to pin point you just by smell is near impossible, humans smell stink as compared to a dog. As in line of sight with smoke, yeah some might come and have a look, but that's the risk you run, or just try and have fire at night, not during the day.
the vietcong did it during the war. if u wish to know about it please message me .
