Well.... Crap

After following @dyal & @Hapster over the past few couple weeks. I've decided to do a brisket on Friday on into Saturday. So I'm sitting here on my 4th yuengling, and I check the weather for the above stated days and realize, it's gonna rain ALL Friday and the majority of Saturday. Wish I had snow to deal with.

  • Well I've got a "stoop". But once I get the egg and the table up under it, I have no where to sit and drink and stay dry. Cept inside and that's no fun. I may put up my little tent thing as long as it doesn't get windy I should be fine.

    Can you set up an umbrella or something to keep the egg dry while you watch it from the stoop?

    Just visit a MotoGP race and hire a "crumpet" to hold an umbrella over your Egg:

    The wife has enough to say about my hobbies! If she walked by the patio and saw that I'd be a dead man.

    Holy $&?"

    I have a 10x10 tent/canopy I bought for my daughter's softball games.

    Sadly, I'm worried more abt staying dry than cooking a freaking brisket. Haha. Oops.

    I know any fireman patrolling this board would shat a brick, but on low and slows, I've left my Egg table at the edge of my garage and set up a box fan to blow most of e smoke outside. It's a 140 lb grill in a 150 lb table, and the fire is smoldering inside a ceramic casing. Unless, for some reason, the rules of combustion change overnight and flames can shoot out the top with the vent barely cracked, It's not dangerous at all. That eing said, even my nation bike smelt smoky the last time I did this. :D

    Yeah, so my iPad isn't cooperating with me tonight. That last sentence was supposed to be That being said, even my mountain bike smelt smoky the last time I did this. Stupid autocorrect.

    Having a cover is the answer, you stay dry, the egg stays dry and do not have to worry about Mother Nature watering down my Makers Mark.....

  • @mayberry I live in Clanton, alabama. Our firemen are only concerned with being invited. Hahaha.

    I mean we have a water tower in the form of a peach, from one angle it looks like a rash on a butt.

    Not that I have a rash on my butt.

    SWMBO just rolled her eyes. Oops

  • It's a brisket, it's gonna cook for hours and you don't have to look every 30 minutes, the egg performs well in the rain. May have to engineer some protection for your Guru if your using one. Go for it You ain't gonna melt!

    You can do it!! :D No thunder and lightening to worry about this time of year. Just rain. You can sit at your window, watch your egg and sip on your beverage. ;)

    That's pretty cool!! Just wanted some time outside, the egg and my dog has no attitude. Know what I mean???

    On a lighter note. I pulled & warmed up the chicken from Friday night. Smothered in garland jacks sauce and slapped on a bun with tiger sauce. Very good

    Get one of these, then pitch a canopy for yourself. They have Yuengling in LA (lower Alabama)? Must be nice.

    I use an EZ up canopy over my egg when it's raining. Works great, just smells like smoked meat when I'm done (not a problem). I hope to build a covered area on my deck soon, but the EZ up has been working great with all this darned rain! No worries of burning it on lower temp cooks, but on those high temp sears, I just move it a little so the heat isn't right under it.

    I see you're from Clanton. I work for Hoover Fire Dept, and one of our Lieutanants also works for Clanton FD. Also, one of our Captains lives in Thorsby.

    EZ up is what I have. I couldn't think of what it was called.

    I probably know them. What's they're name!
