Default How cold is too cold to work the coals?

Last night it was a miserable 7 degrees here in Des Moines. I wanted to throw some chicken hind quarters on the UDS. While I was wearing gloves and a stocking cap, they turned out fantastic, the only problem was that I started the coals, set my beer down on the table and walked into the house for about 15-20 minutes. came back out to iced beer. doh!

The real question is "How cold is too cold to leave your beer outside?"

Never, sometimes you just have to use your cooler as a warmer - for beer too.

I think I'm starting to like you... Yeah, there is something about drinking bourbon and smoking when it is really cold! Heck, I even use Beam in my mop...

The advantage of being a January baby and starting out in the cold to begin with!

Worse coming to worse, I move the smoker to the sheltered side of the house and wrap it in a hot water heater blanket. I do get some strange looks from the neighbors, though.
