It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Question about great big trucks w/ diesel engines

For any truck experts out there. I sort of need an accurate answer:

Ok. Imagine you have a monster dump truck. 5 axles with 2 of them able to be raised and lowered. Truck has a very very big diesel engine. Now, suppose the truck has been sitting all night with the engine off in 40 degree weather. You come out at 6 am to start the engine and drive it off to work.

How long is it reasonable to expect the driver to allow the engine to idle before he can drive the truck off? I'm not talking about warming it up enough to get heat into the cab. How long before he can reasonably drive the truck?
