    With as cool as it is going to get tonight it will be nice and child to be bale ot hang it in the shade ofr a few days. Key point dont let it be hanging in the sun.

    Just prop the cavity open tonight so it can get all good and coold down fast and the ohter exsposed meet get that dry film on it. Then you good to go for a few days with curent temps.

    For a few hours, let it hang above 45 and you risk dyin from e-coli, IMHO [file]148012[/file]
