Egging in the Cold (-25C)

Well, before I bought the Egg I asked if it could be used in the cold, since I live in Manitoba. I was assured that it could. So, today it was -25C and then with windchill -34C. I decided to try it out.

Fired it up and let it heat for 30 minutes. Threw on the steaks. They were yummy.

    I know how you feel, I live in the Mountains of Colorado and it has been in the -20's for the past two weeks, I have cooked several Pizza's a few steaks and abeer but chicken. I have not done a long smoke in those temps simply because I dont want to deal with it but I imagine as long as the wind is calm it would work fine......

    the only thing I do different is when I load Pizza in I try to only open the lid about 2" or so. I find if I prop the lid up in that cold of temp it cools the dome down and takes about 5 min to get back up to temp....
