I recently bought a cover from my local bge dealer. It wasn't the one that big green egg sells but it was one that they have made by a local upholster to pretty much be identical in shape, dimension, and I guess it's a close match on material. It's a green vinyl looking material. We got some rain over night two days ago and after removing the cover today I noticed water had leaked through the cover and puddled. Water had even managed to find its way to a bag of wgww I had stored on the shelf under the top. This is a cedar table I built similar to naked whiz, by the way. I'm thinking about returning it to the deal and asking to swap it out for one of the BGE brand covers. The only reason I didn't get the BGE brand was because they didn't have one in stock. Guess I could have ordered online..... Anyway, has anyone had any experience with the BGE brand cover leaking on them??? I top a lot of time in to my table and top and it has many good coats of spar finish on it but I still don't want it exposed to any uneccesary water. That's why I bought a cover. Any experience or input?

When in doubt, smoke it.
