Weather and the Egg

Just got my first EGG. I live in north west Ohio and wonder if the freezing temps are harmful to the beast? It will be kept under a roof on the porch and covered. Do not want to damage this beauty. Thanks in advance to all.   Bruce

    Nope, won't be a problem at all. We have members from all over that post pic of their cooks in 2+ feet of snow and below freezing temps with no issues.

  • If you have one of the cypress wood tables, get a sealant on it quick. The wood seems to want to mildew if a raincloud passes nearby.

    I cook on mine, rain, snow, sleet, hot, cold, it makes no difference!

    The Egg doesn't care about the weather.

  • I also live in Ohio and there is moisture collecting in my Large Egg and the cooking grate and top metal dampener is rusting.

    Is this normal?

    That is normal if you are not cooking on it enough ... as a stop gap, you could hit your grate and daisy wheel with a little Pam
