So tonight I am low and slowing a 7.5 lb butt. The weather outside is frightful......oh Xmas is over sorry. Any way currently 18 degrees and dropping with 30+ mph winds forecasted all night, JEALOUS?. I placed my base unit between the wall of my table and the egg. Hoping to keep the temp unit protected and warm as possible. Anyone have eggsperience using this product in nasty cold weather?

    I've used mine (ET-73) for many years in the nastiest of weather.  Never has a single issue.  In the winter, I almost always put mine in a ziplock bag (and set it on the table next to the egg) just in case some bad weather shows up overnight when I'm sleeping. These things work just fine in rain, sleet, blizzards, etc.

    Cool thanks. Either way I am using it good to know it is hearty. Good tip on the plastic bag.

  • I'll second that plastic bag idea - never had a problem in any weather condition.
