    This being the first winter that I've had my Egg, it was 15 degrees. Not sure what it was with the windchill, but 15 was bad enough.
    My XL Egg didn't care what the temp outside was though!

  • I must be a wimp, or live in a much warmer place then everyone else. Low 20's upper teens with wind chill. Egg never noticed and we would hold our hands on the outside of the dome while standing around shooting the crap that night.

    Not the coldest ever, but the coldest in the past week...(past Saturday night brisket cook).

  • Probably around 10 degrees or so, but one has to remember that "cold" is a relative term.  That -10 to @yumdinger probably felt about the same that 40 degrees feels to someone in Arizona.

    About 39F.  It was miserable because Mrs B hates the cold.  If she's miserable, I'm miserable.

    Cooking a meal on egg in the 20s. Actually hanging out on porch while cooking I would guess 40.

  • Fahrenheit -10, which is a bit too cold for resurfacing a rink evidenced by the cracks in the ice.
  • 105 F last summer. Talk about a temperature swing!
  • Ha, ha, maybe 40.  Now ask me what's the wettest I've ever Egged, or maybe the hottest I've ever Egged.

  • ChubbsChubbs Posts: 5,583
    We had heat index nearly 120F this past summer in Columbia. Some kind of hot.

  • Yeah @Chubbs and if I remember my time in S.C. right that's not a dry heat. It's sticky and miserable.

    -40C with the windchill, which just so happens to be -40F. Thankfully I built a little shack to block the wind but it was damn cold.

    Coldest for me was probably 15F with wind... Hottest was probably close to 100F easily since my deck is in complete sun. Wettest was likely my very first cook when I got the egg home :)
  • Probably mid 20's for coldest
    100's for hottest

    50 degrees or so.
  • Steaks tonight at around 38! If I still lived in CT, it would be a whole different story. Gotta love the South!
  • The coldest I've Egged when it was 6 F with calm winds.  I usually opt out of Egging while its really cold AND windy.  The warmest I've Egged is around 100 F last summer.
