Large big green egg cover

I made an outdoor kitchen , put 2 eggs into it.  I have them on Unilock block on a limestone top.  I need a cover to cover each one.  Seems like most ones are too long?  Any suggestions?

    Seen some BGE covers out there for the Eggs,  I do not cover mine, nerver had an issue but maybe where you are it may be.   Are they close together?

    You probably need to consider a custom made cover. They really aren't THAT costly  considering how much you have already invested! There are many companies out there!

  • There are custom boat cover shops in a lot of towns.  They can make you a HD cover in various colors that will last for many years. They use UV vinyl, heavy stitching, and will sew on tie down straps. 
  • So a cover like this is too long?

  • Hem it up. Mark it and take it to a dry cleaner see if they can do it

    Just a thought, why not get some double sided tape or even Velcro and fold it up into
    itself to make the ones you have shorter, that's probably easier and cheaper than trying to find a custom cover for it. Other than that Alaskan has the other best option.

    You can also try reaching out to https://www.the-cover-store.com/ - they sell covers that are both full length (in nest) and just the dome (similar to what @4TheGrillOfIt posted), and also make custom covers for patio furniture, etc.  so they may be able to make something that works for your setup.

    Can't you just cut that one? If you insist on a clean finish, mark it and send it in to be hemmed properly ... shouldn't cost that much.

    Do you think that your winters are worst than in the GWN?  Mine sits uncovered all year long and has been like this for over 10 years.  I had cover at first but it caused more problems than it was solving.
