Try tunning it with a new plug at about 3 turns out. It was about 40 degrees here today and mine ran good at 3 1/4 turns out. Try to start rich and tune it down just to where theres a little smoke commin out.

+1 to what you guys said but plugs also get fouled from rich conditiions.
take a picture of one of the burnt plugs so i can read it also take a picture of the inside of your engine.
