    BENTE,
    I have a medium size,and miss it like crazy. Willie

  • Willie,
    I have a raincap for my large BGE. It is a standard six inch cap. You can get them at any homecenter such as Lowes or Home Depot. It fits perfectly, snug but not tight so the wind will not effect it. Good luck, Bucky

    Willie,[p]This weekend it was raining and I inverted my old chimney charcoal starter over the metal cap of the XL and then set a saucer on top of the chimney starter. Works in an emergency. I may have seen that idea on this forum earlier.

  • Bucky Buckshot, I bought a 7" diameter cap at Home Depot last weekend thinking the 6" might not fit over the handle. They are very bendable/shapeable, and once I got it home I realized the 6" would have worked. So I'm stuck with one a little oversized, but it works perfectly.

    <p />Willie,
    This is a 6" sitting on my large and I use that for my medium as well. Also be aware there are various shapes available. I'm kinda partial to this "coolie" hat shape as it really protects quite well. BTW remember these get
