[Homeroast] Cold Weather Roasting

I've done cold weather roasting outside here in Utah, Rich. Never with a 
Behmor, but with a small roaster and a popper. Trying to roast (here) 
with ambient less and 40 is challenging. The good thing about your 
situation is that you'll be out of the wind. My husband put together a 
small windbreak for me, and it helped a lot. That said, I still won't 
roast in less than 40 degrees. You might be able to get away with a 
small space heater in your roasting area. Should help a bit. Enjoy!

I will be roasting in my unheated garage which, right now has ambient temperatures in the range of 30-40 degrees.  I am concerned that the low ambient temperatures might have an adverse effect on my roasting.
