Impromptu Rainguard

I have seem the many posts on using a aluminum vent stack as a rainguard. My intention is to get a couple - someday.

Well, during tonight's cook - I had suddenly had the need!

Here's what I came up with with the stuff I had on hand:

The fry basket from a Cajun cooker - minus the handle and a lid from a pasta pot:


First the basket:


Then the lid:


The basket gives enough room that you can open the daisy wheel pretty wide - although with it wide open there's really no need to cover it!

    I wasn't sure at first, but after the third picture I am sure that I had a blind date with her one time!

    That's a great idea.

    One potential downside is the smoke staining the surface. You might consider that old Boy Scout trick of rubbing a cake of soap on all the surfaces prior to using it - makes it easier to clean (at least we thought it did when we were 12.) Or just oiling it well.
