Smokes 'em straight

I’m fairly new to meerschaum, and one situation I’ve thought might be great is smoking in the wind. I’m always hesitant with better briars for fear of overheating and cracking them or getting a burnout. Is meer more resistant like it seems, or is it also susceptible to damage from overheating?

Thanks!

P.S. as I’m heating up a new meer in the wind!

Provided it's block meer I wouldn't worry about the wind.
Pressed meer, definitely a cause for concern.
