Raincap For Daisywheel ???

I keep reading and hearing about people using raincaps for their daisywheel. I live in Seattle so I need one for cooking in the rain all the time. Is it an accessory that you can buy or is everyone building their own ? Thanks... Big Green Eggs Rule !!! Rock On ...

    Big Daddy,
    They are all home built, I think. Some people use a coffee can with holes poked in the sides. Other people use caps for galvanized ducts that you can find in the hardware store.[p]TNW

    <p />Big Daddy,
    Go to your local hardware store and buy a shanty cap. Get one big enough to fit over your daisy wheel.[p]Kelly Keefe

    Big Daddy, Mine is in use right now as I post. The one I have looks like a coolie hat. One warning though - once in use always use gloves or something under it to lift it off - that thing gets ungawdly hot!

    <p />Big Daddy,
    If you are desperate, use tinfoil. It works, not pretty and it's only good for the one cook. On the picture, it was raining, windy, and sleeting...not pretty, but it worked.[p]Mike in MN

    Big Daddy,
    try an unbrella over your table, this keeps the rain off of you while tending your egg. like loading and unloading and covers the egg while its cooking
