Daisy wheel & cooking when snowing?

With Dallas' white Christmas, I'm doing a snow cook for the first time. Is there anything I need to do with the daisy wheel (before, during, or after cooking) when using in the snow so that it doesn't get all rusted out?

Thanks in advance!

    Nope but you can throw it in the egg when you shut it down to dry it off if you want. Mine is outside 24/7/365 x 8 years and I've never had an issue. I throw it in when it's hot from time to time to clean it but that's about it.

    Use as normal.  When finished put on the ceramic top and put the DW IN the BGE.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^ Duganboy has it right-

  • You guys are awesome. Thanks for the quick help. Looking forward to a roasted beet salad and then some beef tenderloin. Not the weather I'd expected, but all part of the great BGE adventures!
  • Left mine out in the rain the other night and rusted pretty good. Cleaned it with a Brillo pad, re-seasoned with Crisco, in the oven for a couple of ours and its as good as new. I have seen pictures of people putting a coffee can with side holes over the DW in the snow and rain.
