    Rita,[p]For over 5 years now I've stood out in all kinds of weather cooking our favorite foods on Mr. Egg. and it wasn't until last year I sprung for a $39 deck umbrella to go over the table. It's not that I'm cheap, it just never occured to me to get one - I'm a little slow. I also have a little galvanized stove cap that just fits over the top vent. It's a little more comfortable when I'm cooking is inclement weather now. And when it's snowing my neighbors are more convinced than ever of my mental state. ("Hey, Marge, dimwit has the umbrella up and it's snowing.") They always manage to find a reason to step out on the deck and ask what I'm cooking though. What was the question?
  • Rita,
    rain won't affect a thing, except maybe your hair-do...[p]i take a piece of aluminum foil, fold it up a couple of times, then work it around the daisy wheel handle and up about two inches over the daisy wheel to keep any rain from going into the egg. ..otherwise, everything else stays the same, rain, snow, cold, heat or otherwise. ..
