yep, you can crack masonry fireplaces in cold weather with too hot a fire. I've done it. It was a really hot fire though, I burned an entire fir deck in a day, and the external temp was around 0 F

More thermal mass probably makes this less likely.

Going a little lower and a little slower,, Kind of like buying insurance as you hope nothing will ever happen,,,You wear a seat belt as well knowing nothing should happen,,, Its the variables in the world that make bad things happen and when you can avoid some of the variables you can make the ride a little smoother,safer,etc... Just my opinion.....

Who in their right mind would be wanting to eat outdoors when the temp is below freezing ?????

Says I, who lives where it reaches a low of 10 C (50 F) twice or maybe three times a year !
