Doing a low and slow cook Tom. They are calling for rain all day just wondering about the probe wires.

    You should be fine. I've done many cooks in in rain and snow and never had any problems with
    the wires of my digi q. I do cover the main unit with a plastic baggie
    and use a rubber band to keep it from blowing off.

    Thanks Hungry Joe. I am fairly new to this I just wasn't sure if it would hurt it or not.
  • No issue with rain and wires, I have had them in a down pour for hours but DO wrap the unit... lots and lots of posts about the unit getting fried by rain.
  • What about keeping the Pit Viper fan from the rain...Will the rain hurt it? Any suggestions?

    I can't say I ever remember seeing a unit being fried by rain but I
    guess it could happen especially if water got in where the plugs connect
    to the digi q. That is why I use plastic bags to protect everything. I
    also have made a tent from aluminum to protect the fan but skipped that
    step the last couple of cooks and haven't had any problems.

    I do see posts of wires being damaged from high heat. My unit is older but the newer ones have upgraded wires with a higher heat rating.
