Default Sub-Zero Smoking

I'm just about out of pulled pork, and would like to make some more.

Has anybody fired up a WSM in subzero weather? I'm in Northern Wisconsin,
and it's 3 below right now. It may go up a few degrees, but it's more
likely that we'll go down even further.

I've got plenty of Wicked Good charcoal, but have never tried to use it in
such cold weather. I really don't want to run out of pulled pork!

Do it! I run my WSM in NH all winter. I think my coldest
cook was about 5 above. The thing I have played with is the
water pan.
I usually run my WSM with sand in the pan. In real cold
weather this seems to be a bit too much of a heat sink, so I
just foil the empty pan.
Keep it out of the wind and go for it!

Agreed. I run mine all winter here in New York state. The
biggest factor is the wind as David said. If it's a calm
day, no problem. If it's windy put something by the WSM to
block the wind. Of course it helps if you have a wireless
thermometer so you can monitor the meat and grate temps from
the comfort of your couch. I'm really gonna break down and
install a Guru on my WSM one of these days...

Thanks for all your replies. It's 17 below right now (with 5 mph wind) as I
type this, but I'll get going later today no matter what the temperature is!

I've never seen Wicked Good charcoal around here (Burnett County,
Wisconsin). I buy mine from www.wickedgoodcharcoal.com.

I've been buying Wicked Good in the 3-bag boxes, just to try it out.

My next purchase will be a full pallet. I really love the stuff, for both
BBQ and grilling. I've had great results with briskets and pulled pork, and
New York Strips come out absolutely wonderful.
