I brew in the back of my basement, near a door. I have not had the pilots blow out. I've never gotten around to making a collar to go around the burner and the lower portions of the kettle, though that might help my heat efficiency. It would also reduce the risk of blowing out the pilot. I just tried to blow them out, and it takes a pretty good puff, but it can be done.
