Ok,   I am doing my fourth butt cook tonight and it is calling for rain.   Dome is 250 right now and holding steady.   Can I expect rain to change anything or should she hold rock steady?

  • Rain did not affect mine, do you cook under cover at all?  I put an umbrella over mine and the only problem was smoke hung under it and got into my eyes.  Temp was no problem.

    I got a 6" roof vent cover from a local hardware store fits right on the DW and lets the smoke flow.

  • First be thankful for the rain. But first time I tried with substantial rain I got hosed. Then I got one of those, if i remember right 6" chimney vents at ace. Fits perfect over the daisy wheel.

    You'll be good with or without the vent cap. I use the same thing but don't think it really matters...I just like the piece of mind of having the DW covered.

    I've never had a problem with our without the dual function top thingy. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    You will be fine. In the Great White North it rains all fall, winter, and spring. My egg loves it, without any rain cap. I do tie a " soap on the rope to one of the shelves though"  ;)
