    Chicago Wine Geek,
    You could Egg in a hurricane probably...well a category 1 anyway.[p]Seriously though, the rain won't hurt the egg or affect the cooking.[p]Enjoy your meal.

    <p />Chicago Wine Geek,
    you sure can! I even egg in downpours using this roof top cap I bought at Menard's. Just remember it gets ungawdly hot! Touched with your fingers and they will be seared!!!

    <p />here's another shot of it upside down - just make sure the throat is 6" in diameter and that way it will sit down over Miss Daisey without any problems.

  • RRP -

    Too cool! Gotta get me one of those. Tonight is lime chili rubbed bone in chicken breasts with a 2001 Spring Mountain Cabernet. Just stopped raining.

  • Chicago Wine Geek, there was a post about 4 years ago from a new lady Egger in Iowa...she had just started cooking an overnight pork butt, a 24+ hour cook, and a 6 inch downpour that lasted all night hit ; just as she started the cook... she posted the next morning....EGG held steady, temperature never budged despite the torrential rains. She had No raincap, no protection ; an umbrella will keep you and the Egg dry or a raincap will help in a hurricane. Probably neither is needed. Eggs can handle it without help.....
