Could be steam... Even without a waterpan, the meat is giving off some water. I find with my UDS the smoke looks whiter when its this cold. I just assumed it steam, as I know the combustion is right.

No beer is the biggest issue IMHO but I might also point out that I have had batteries in remote devices freeze up in weather like that.

That was a close one. I was lucky and talked the wife into a garage beer fridge, told her we need the extra freezer space yadda yadda yadda so the lower half is beer. I don't think I have ever run out...it's been close a few times. Then again I don't have the weather to deal with like you do.

I do like some of the other ideas from the brethren...get some wiskey. I prefer Jameson myself...
