Daisy Cap Diameter

Hi everyone from Manchester in the UK.
I have an XL on order which is being delivered this Friday. Good times.

I need a favour though. Can someone tell me what the outer diameter of the daisy wheel cap is please.
It rains A LOT here and I want to order a rain cap for it but can't find the size I need anywhere.

Really excited about getting the XL. I got rid of a PRO Q smoker to make room for it.
I'll post some cookin pics in the near future.

Thanks in advance

    Anyone at home that can oblige please? A measurement of the DFMT diameter from the large will do as I believe its the same cap.

    Thanks :)

    The one on my LBGE is 6 1/8 inches.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    Don't throw away the ProQ.  It is great as a portable grill/smoker.  It's not as predictable or forgiving as the egg, but it is nice to have a 20" grill with me at a campsite... or on my upcoming Labor Day trip to South Padre Island.  It's particularly portable when you take out one (or both) of the middle sections.
