I think he was glad to have the So. Yankee so he could stay warm - mamma was at the motel with the kids! :D He has mentioned that he's thinking about selling off the SY rig and going to something like multiple Stump's smokers and a concession/catering setup that has more service window area.
I think "we" were having issues with the cool temps, too.
I talked with Bill and some others and meat was finishing off "funny". I know they'd "fixed" the Fast Eddy cooker and the Caldera was ready to go -- I don't know which meat was cooked in which cooker.
Our neighbor commented that his brisket would have made good shoe leather, too.
