Grill Cover

What brand cover do you all use? I have been purchasing a universal brinkman from Home Depot for less than 30 bucks and it fits great; however the cover does not last very ling ans I have also had an issue this year with the dog deciding to chew up two of my covers. Is there a relatively inexpensive cover that will last in the intense summer UV rays?

  • Try Lowes look for the Akorn cover made for their BGE knockoff. The price is about 35 but it fit my large and nest down to the wheels.

    Check out duckcovers.com .  I found that on this forum and have been pleased with the cover for my large table.  $55 w/ shipping.  I've only had for 1 month, so it hasn't been tested under a blazing sun yet.
  • I bought a cheap Weber cover from Wal Mart.  It fits my large BGE and nest pretty well and has held up thus far (only had for 1 year though).  Think I paid $25-30 for it.

    I have used the same BGE cover for years. The printed logo is worn off and the Velcro is deteriorated, but other than that, like the day I got it.

    My first BGE cover from several years ago lasted about 3 years. I bought a new one last summer, much better quality than the past one. I think it was around $70, but it fits my large BGE and small table perfectly, and I expect it to last for years.

  • not being smart here but if the dog is eating it sounds like what ever you buy will not last long. try a hefty construction grade bag.

    I have one of these as well. A gift. Seems to be well made, very flexible, water and snow just slide off. That said, mine is almost 4 years old and I think I've used it 3-4 times. Just couldn't be bothered. And I suspect any cover, vented or not, will accelerate rusting of the metal parts.

    But as justacookin said, if your dog is eating them, why bother? You don't need one anyway.

    I use it because the birds like to crap all over my table. Plus the table I made is kidney shaped . For me I've always covered after every use. Unless I'm to toasted and fall asleep.

    My deck is heavily shaded in the summer months, but gets lots of UVL rays during the winter let alone the snow. During the summer I use a BGE cover which is now 10 years old and was one of their early unvented design covers. In the winter months though I use one of those silver colored CHEAP tarps that are UVL resistant. It is 10 x 12 and I only gave $8 for it! If you have a Harbor Freight store nearby they are even cheaper!

  • Picked up a charbroil cover for a standard grill. 15 bucks I think. Seems fairly heavy duty.
    It's not form fitting but it fits my cheap wallet.
