I have recently become convinced that the best thing about the egg is that I never have to cover it. I have a back deck and pool area that is mostly shaded by oak trees. I have covers on my gas grill, other charcoal grills, a cooler/table, multiple chairs and my fire pit, but I never have to cover my egg. At this time of year if it rains while a cover is off of something, then it is a minor pain to clean it before I can recover it... but again, not with the egg. I have an egg cover and occasionally put it on, but I'm not sure why.
So, as much as I like how easily I am able to produce great food on the egg, I think that it's ability to ignore the outdoor elements is it's greatest benefit - at least in my back yard.
