    Does anyone cover their smoker to protect it from the weather?

    I gave up on covers. Every time I've had one I get waspers up inside and get stung when removing the cover.

    I have one, mother in law needs ta mod it fer my stack, so haven't used it yet. Been bout 5 months without, smoker don't look no worse fer wear yet. I'll use the cover when it's done. More personal choice then anythin I think.
     
  5. I've used the Brinkmann cover on my SNPP since I got it 14 years ago. With using the cover and an annual coat of high temp stove paint, it's still lookin good. I also bought the firebox liner to help prevent burnout. My firebox is still solid. I do not leave the firebox full of ashes and I think this helps to extend the life as well.

    I've never used a cover on any of my webers. Even though they'll sell you one, the company says they are not good because they trap moisture and accelerate rust...

    My MES came with a good strong one. It sits on the patio next to the MES.[​IMG] Never have fully covered it yet. Seems I'm always doing something with the smoker, checking temps, smoking water[​IMG] or smoking meats.
