Just curious
If you are cooking along and it starts to rain, will this cause the egg to crack due the cooling effect on the outside and heat on the in?[p]smoking pup

    smoking pup,
    to add a little to NB's long winded answer ;),
    based on my experience, Nope! I have started it from below zero in the winter with no problem. Tonite while doing some steaks it started raining and although I moved the egg closer under the eaves, (to keep me dry) there was still some rain hitting it and it did not hurt it a bit. This was at ~600* and no problems. Hope this helps.

    <p />smoking pup,[p]It seems like whenever it rains -- I am "told" to cook outside on the Eggs. It hasn't rained here in 3+ weeks so sometimes I cook in dry weather. My dog, Coty, loves rib nights and this picture was one of those nights when a big downpour hit. [p]The only time I have had trouble in rain is starting the fire. If enough rain hits the small area that is lit, it might go out (it never has but could). Once fired up it is pretty hard for rain to bother it. [p]Tim

    Tim M,[p] Seems kind of funny, when you disappear the chicken man shows up, now we see someone in a dog costume , kind suspicious if I do say so. Do you by chance know Superman??[p]Earl
