Mid-20s, calm, preferably sunny. If the temp drops out of the 40s, I go with a cob. But my fave times are cool, clear evenings in Spring and Fall just as the stars are coming out.

Well, that would depend on how long I've gone without a smoke because I don't smoke in the house. But I've been out when it was 27 and a 13 mile hour wind. Yep, a real quick one sir.

I smoke outside of my own choosing because I don't like the smell in the house after awhile. The next day it always smells dirty and funky. Besides the smoke residue gets all over everything in time.

This totally. Sometimes in one of the barns though. The threshold would most likely be around minus 10 degrees or so. Makes for a nice cool smoke.

I smoke outside also, and live in the northern Illinois stateline area, so I have no bottom line temperature for smoking. At the 20 mark, I leave the briars inside and break out a cob (cheaper to replace), and if it's too cold to enjoy it, I stay inside and enjoy a pinch of snuff!

Can't smoke indoors, here. My wife is allergic and the first whiff of smoke---her asthma kicks in. I have sat out in the garage (no insulation) with a small heater in front of me at 20 degrees. I can sit on the porch at 40...for awhile. At 45 I can stay out as long as I want. Upper 30's on the porch is probably my limit.

Pipe in the house is fine. Cigars and I'm banished..

I smoke in the house, but I have been out with the snow blower at -5 F while smoking a pipe. I have pictures somewhere of my father smoking while shoveling snow in Maine.

-5 sounds painful Padre. I clearly remember that while I was a cheesehead, and sometimes the temps could get to -20 or more! Didn't smoke a pipe back then though, but it was brutal. Don't miss that nonsense at all!

Cheers,

RR

I smoke inside when the kids aren't around. But at work I've been out in -10, the pipe makes a nice hand warmer.

I think today was a record for me, 25 F . set up my little nest in the
garage. Roll up door up about 4' a space heater set up in front of my chair.
A hoodie , gloves & an old blanket over my legs.

If I am out in the cold, I am too active to smoke. To be comfortable and idle enough to smoke, maybe 50 degrees in the sun. In front of a nice campfire, then maybe 20, but not where I'm sitting (campfires in the snow with friends, bourbon and pipes are fine times).

My personal record, from living in a camper in the woods, is -17F. I could have smoked inside but there was wood to be chopped, or the indoor temperature would soon have been about -17.

As I get a bit older it seems the cold really gets into my bones so I'd have to say 40 degrees without any type of heating. But, now that I've got one of those fancy shamcy patio heaters on the porch I might be able to withstand a bit more, only time will tell. Wink

AND! Good to see you back and about George, we missed you! cheers

I like it to be in the 40's up. The other night I smoked a long bowl in 35 degrees with a slight wind and about half way through I was heading for the garage. The wind made it feel a lot colder than it actually was. Bottom line, if I am thinking about the weather, I am probably not relaxing enough to enjoy my pipe.

May have to reconsider. Sat out on Fri at 32 degrees, sitting in the sun, and it was quite doable. Sat in the garage today with a kerosene heater, sort of working, at 28. It was fine.

Well, today I discovered that I can stay out at 18 degrees. Me and the cat with a book and a cup of joe, and of course a pipe.

Just saw this thread, I don't smoke inside my place either. As it gets colder I start going to smaller pipes, and half fills...then eventually decide to smoke only when I run errands and can do it in the warm truck. Been out in the driveway puffin' this year at about the 0 mark for temps. I will just have to continue the dream about a heated workshop I can smoke in.
