Rain Cap

<p />It's raining and I have a brisket on so I needed a cap over my Daisy Wheel. Guess what? The BGE Rain Cap fits over the Daisy Wheel and leaves just enough gap to keep the fire going without allowing rain to get in.[p]Spring Chicken

    Spring Chicken:[p]From the picture shown in your profile it looks like you could easily extend your roofline with a tin roof design and poles to provide you with a covered cook area. I did this to a part of my deck (with a shingled roof extension because slope allowed) and I am cooking in the rain today. Just a thought . . .

    Yea, I've thought of that but I really like the "blue ceiling" Mother Nature provides. At least until July and August when she gets rather aggressive. When I re-do my deck area I will probably create a courtyard affect, complete with an outdoor kitchen. I'm only 6 numbers away from that dream. Texas Lottery is over $100 million and growing. And Wednesday, it has my name written all over it. [p]For now, I'm looking for cheap alternatives.[p]Spring Chicken

    Spring Chicken:[p]I know what you mean about the blue sky . . . And those wonderful stars . . . That is why I only did half of my deck. Regardless, a local carpenter could handle this for you on the cheap and with quality results.[p]Darryl, looking for those six numbers in Georgia . . .

    Spring Chicken,[p]Head on down to Lowes and pick up a 7 inch shanty cap. It works great and still has enough room to adjust the daisy wheel vents. Costs $8.36 and mine has worked great during the last few overnight cooks with all this rain. We used them at the cookoff just in case.[p]Cheers,[p]Ed

    <p />Spring Chicken,
    Now this is a cheap rain cap! I'm cheap. I'm waiting for my 6 umbers to come up too...except I'm too cheap to spend the buck on a ticket. [p]Mike in MN ;>
