I am Canadian and cook year round in the below freezing temps without issues.

FYI, the newer version BSK has some mod's that help control and maintain lower temps without a lot of fussing.

Again, not bashing ceramics, just speaking on the experience and pleasure with the steel version.

Just MHO

^^^ What they said ^^^^

Went with the Bubba Keg due to affordability and cooking similarities.
