Top tip for those with a rain cap for their egg...

Like many others, I have a metal rain cap for my egg that I can put on top of the adjustable daisy wheel thingy in inclement weather.

It looks like this:


A couple of weeks ago I was getting the egg fired up for some searing and it started raining. Now, when I usually use the rain cap I am cooking low and slow. This time, I decided to protect the new fire from the rain with the rain cap.

Usually, when cooking at 250, the rain cap is pretty cool to the touch. However, when the egg gets to 700 degrees and you decide to take off the rain cap to put on the daisy wheel I can now, speaking from experience, recommend you use tongs or gloves to protect your hands.

Did you know it's possible to leave finger prints burned onto an aluminum chimney cap? Me neither.
