i built houses for 20 yrs
you ever seen one those propane heaters that drywall people use in the winter for their mud and tape?
i think they are called a salemander heater or is it a torpedoe but either way
my bricklayers would make a plastic tent over the front of the house and heat the work area while laying brick in freezing temps

OK, my suggestions was going to be more in par with sitting on them, but then you can't eat the ribs.

Seems Roomik beat me to it though, which a much quicker way...LOL

the point was you can make a plastic tent or better yet tee pee with a vent hole on the top to make a heated area around the smoker

True , but we could always go back inside for a cup a Joe. You guys did not always have that. So I think we had the better deal for sure. Not so much into the ground pounding or riding a tracker with a cannon a fixed to it. lol or the big waves like the surface targets. Na its like being in a plane but colder lol

you got me stumped on the glove and no tongs thing. I do understand about being picky about the Texas BBq, lot a pride in that there. Hats off doing it in these temps. GL with that.
