I bring mine inside night before brewing and still pre warm. Pre warming is easy step, do it at same time I'm confirming my tun is clean.
Other pre warm advantage is that sometimes I do back to back batches. Probably 30 min after one batch is done running off I'm dumping grain and adding strike water for next batch. I just dump the grain, don't aggressively rinse between batches. Works out that batch 1 pre warms for batch 2.
