Using the BBQ Guru in the rain

Does anyone out there know if the blower is waterproof?

I intend to use today in the rain. The controller will be under cover (plastic bucket) but what about the blower... is it waterproof ?

  • I have never trusted mine to be waterproof. I use an aluminum foil tent over the blower that I secure to the exposed round shaft.

    I'd Jerry rig a 5 gallon bucket to it, and cut out the bottom of the bucket to allow air flow, if time permits.

  • That all makes a lot of sense

    Cheers

  • The Gurus are not waterproof.  They are water resistant, per BBQ Guru.  I place my control unit in a zip loc bag and make sure there is something above the blower to stop the rain from getting to it.  Usually, I trust my umbrella to do that.
