I've never finished anything in the oven-yet! Or ordered take out-yet! But I have had more than a few late dinners or leftovers the next day because of my poor timing.
I have gotten better. But I better not get cocky!

Crappy weather is when a ceramic cooker like an Egg really shine. I usually don't bother if it's minus 20° or colder because the hole on my beer bottle keeps freezing shut, but down to that temp, I'm good.

I'd rather not eat at all... works well for me but not when cooking for others :). Funny thing is when I'm done cooking I have little desire to eat whatever I just spent the better part of a day working on. Leftovers are a different story.

It was around 20 outside for my most recent cook on the WSM. After about 14 hours on my second load of charcoal running out (normally get 16 or more on one load) I decided to finish the brisket in the oven.

Before I got my BGE I wouldn't have believed you... but now, all I can say is WOW!!!

I've done the -10* cooks and Ramona just keeps on chugging! I'm sure that I would have been up all night trying to keep the stick burner going.

Because we like water here in the Midwest!

We like paying the big bucks for propane for heating our little houses.

We overcome the extreem cold by using Cookshack electric smokers when it gets that cold.

They work below 20 below as well.

Because anybody can live where the temp is consistent.
It takes a real man to endure an instantaneous 100 degree temp change when he leaves his house.

One nice thing about living alone is that dinner is when the Q is finished, not at a specific time. So if a butt is cooking slow, dinner may be at 9:00pm instead of 6:00pm. But I always have some brats or fatties on so that I have something I can snack on.

That is one of the FEW benifits... I must admit that I'm the same way... It'll be done when it's done!
