When I had a cheap offset and had to load it up every hour it was not much fun in the cold. Now with the UDS its no problem. I've used it at around 0* without a issue. Wind is more of a problem than cold. Make sure you can block it somehow if need be. Also the umbrella mod could be deployed if needed. I use binoculars to check temp from inside the warm house.

Some have had luck with wrapping some insulation around the outside.

Ask PWA about smoking in cold weather. He smokes stuff year round and lives in North Pole, Alaska. I asked him if he knew Santa or any of the elves and he got angry at me.

I cook outside year-round. My Eggs don't care what the outside temp is. The only change I make between summer and winter (for me) is what I'm drinking. Beer in summer, bourbon in winter.
