I know there has had to be posts about using the egg in the rain, but I haven't been able to find any. After looking at the weather, I see it is going to RAIN today. I understand I can still use the BGE in the rain, but my question is if the top damper is open, won't the rain be counter-productive of the flame? Or is there a special trick known only to the experienced?

    No secret required!!![p]Lots of folks just go to the Depot...and get a 6" rain cap, (like you'd put on an upright dryer or plumbing vent stack)...and it woirks like a charm.[p]The price is right too!![p]Good luck![p]Evans

    I spent most of my money on good bourbon, and bad women...the rest, I just wasted!!
  • Seethewave,[p]Go to Lowes or Home Depot and get a 6 inch rain cap. They are in the heating department. Works great

    ive used foil as a tent over the top, hardware stores carry a vent cap that fits nicely and ive used them, but if you regulate the temp with just the little daisy openings open there is not enough water that enters unless you are really getting deluged with rain. i havent used anything in years, on low and slows its more like a lite basting going on

    my egg is fine in the rain and snow. but every time i cook on it in bad weather my feet get wet or cold or both. my kids tell me this is because i don't put on shoes. but they are young adults and think they know everything.
