Rainy Cooking

Any advice for cooking a bird outside in the rain on Thanksgiving?
Do you need to protect the daisy wheel. Any tips on protecting the cook?
Thanks and happy Thanksgiving to all.



  • I don't think it's necessary to protect the daisy wheel, although I've noticed mine gets just the slight bit rusty after getting rained on. I shot it with WD40 after the first time and it's been fine ever since.

    I've got a patio umbrella bungeed to the railing above my egg to keep it reasonably dry, works like a champ. It's more for my comfort than the egg though.

    Go to your local Menards/Lowes/Home Depot and buy an aluminum roof vent ... you know, the kind that sits on top of your sewer vent or furnace exhaust vent up on your roof.[p]$5 max ...

    <p />meinbmw,
    Like this... Just remember that the cap gets hot!

  • Paul,
    I live in the Seattle area and cook outside, uncovered all year long. Those little rain caps are cute but not needed at all....
