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 .

BUT back to my question ........ Is there such as thing as a diffuser or filter system to lessen the smell or smoke produced by a wood burning stove?

Does something like that exist or any ideas to diffuse the smoke without affecting the performance of the auger?

Rocket stoves can be up to 90% efficient, in burning wood, and very little smoke if any, (only on start up will smoke be seen), with air injection from a small air blower all smoke can be eliminated and increase the efficiency,

there are many ideas for what a rocket stove is and how to build them ---- on youtube, 
you can build small ones to carry and large home ones,

so you will want to build a room to catch all the carbon (smoke) and then treat all the smell thru maybe a giant cotton ball?  seams crazy, i mean if you want to be a crazy hermit, or just be smart when you do your cooking, dont use smokey wood

Have a wood drying rack next to the fire!
Burn only VERY dry wood and keep the fire hot
KEEP ALL YOUR COOKING COVERED this will prevent 99% of odours

The above will keep you hidden well!

I am with arkane, just use old seasoned wood from groundfall same as what we do with the hog grits cooker and stove and there is little smoke once it is perculating.

Early on in the post a few commented on the ability of humans to smell. I thought that was fairly limited as well but a single instance blew that out of the water.

Had some people camping on my "old" place once on a creek flat 600 metres from my shack. Went outside just on daylight on an almost dead still morning and could smell the bacon and eggs cooking! There was just the slightest air (couldn't call it wind) drift my way.

Admittedly conditions were perfect for what happened but a hungry persons sense of smell gets ramped up and is something to consider.

Cool moist mornings transmit sound and smell a lot better than hot dry still days.
My life experience anyways.

After re-reading Missybythelake's 3 posts I had a giggle.

A lot of people seem to think that moving out in the country will alleviate problems of mobs from the city finding their way out here ATSHTF...distance and all being the major factor,a lot of people probably forget there are enough crazies out here already.
