As cold as your location is, I would start your cook with a good amount of lump charcoal to establish a good bed of coals. If you can get to 275-300*, it would be really good. If you can spatchock your bird, it will cook quicker and you can get it out of the weather sooner.

Good luck and good smokin', Joe.

Last bird I did. I cooked it at 300 and it was on for slightly more than 3 hours.
Tough conditions for cooking out there. But once you get a good bed of coals built up and the smoker settled in you should be fine.
