The outside will be ok, but the inside will rust if it isnt seasoned yet.
I have a coverd patio over mine, but i do get rain on it from time to time and it hasent rusted yet. The black pipe nipples do have a little rust though. I may paint or just oil them.
I don't cover my smokers.
We have a damp and humid climate in the winter. Covers can impede airflow.
You can imagine the rest.
Good luck and good smoking.
Thanks, can't wait to try it out this weekend. I'll post a pic when I put it together tonight. Had to let the paint dry.
Well, here it is. Can't wait to use it this weekend!
