Emergency rain hood

I put a meatloaf on this morning even though I knew it was going to rain. And it did of course. I made an emergency rain hood out of foil. It's working so far. Anyone else make one of these I'd love to see your designs.

  • looks great but you really don't need it. Your egg will power through almost any rain. I've cooked in downpours (back when we got rain) with no issues whatsoever.

    Before I got my egg, grilling in the rain wasn't even a consideration.

    Cool ideas.....................but here in the Willamette Valley, with average 42 inches of rain a year, it really helps to have your deck covered!
