It has been raining a lot here in south Louisiana the past few weeks, and my egg doesn't have any shelter as of yet. That doesn't have to slow me down any longer:

Well it really didn't slow me down before either, I just thought this looked cool.

  • But that sexy handle more than makes up for it. Did you make that yourself?
  • Sweet handle!!!!!!!!

    That is an epic handle. Not to hijack this thread (rain hat) please share details.

    I made it with a couple of pieces of scrap Birch plywood glued together and carved with a Dremel Moto tool to kind of fit my left hand. I gave it about 5 coats of Poly and mounted it to the egg metal handle from the back with a couple of long thin round headed screws. I once made a plywood slingshot with a custom grip and liked the way the plywood layers brought out the shape.

    Next project; a full size reproduction of Michelangelo'David done in laminate plywood. :woohoo:

    Thats a nice little DIY solution you've got there. Does it make the egg run hotter? I know if you cut the bottom of a coffe can off and put it over the top of the egg it causes it to kick into turbo. Something about how it affects the airflow.

    I mean no disrespect to your solution @Red Stick Egger , why not just get a smokeware cap for $37?

    Perhaps because there WAS no Smokeware cap in 2009 when Red Stick posted this.

    How do u start a fire in the rain? Last time i had the fire raging before the downpour so it wasnt an issue. I dont have any firestarters right now, only soaked cotton balls in olive oil

    Red Stick was apparently robbed of a great idea.

    If you are looking for something like this @blasting is correct on the SmokeWare SS Cap for $37.  It has actually helped with the flow on my XL since I got one for last Christmas.  I don't use my daisy wheel anymore.  I also got the flat as well to help with snuffing out the fire.

  • I actually have one. I was trying to post about it in another thread and somehow revived this thread from 2009.... No idea how I managed that.

    Don't drink and post guys, it's dangerous.
