My BGE was sweating like a pig last night

I was waiting for it to get up to temp for a pizza. As it it approached 600F I saw a bunch of steam start to form and then water droplets all over the dome. So much they were running down the dome. It finanly stopped but now I have white spots all over the dome where the water spots once were.

Is this normal. I do not cover the BGE just put on the green cap and walk away. It had been about 5 days since my last use and had been rather rainy over those 5 days.

Oh on a side note. Don't look into the chimney when you cooking your pie at around 650F. Apparently eyebrows and lashes have a lower flash point than that.

    Mine does the same thing, breaks out in a sweat around 550 deg F. I don't cover either.
