  1. Does anyone know if the MES covers are waterproof? The box is kind of confusing, it says weatherproof,
  2. I think it is pretty waterproof. 

    Happy smoken.

  3. Thanks

    I live in GA too.  With the humidity here, I would store the unit in the garage rather than outside on a covered patio even with a cover.  I think the insides would corrode from the moisture the South is famous for.
  5. Makes sense. Thanks. We sure do have crazy weather here.

    I wouldn't leave my MES 40 in the rain with the cover on, but under roof, the humidity is no problem here in PA.

    Average Annual Relative Humidity:

    Atlanta, GA --------68%

    Phila, PA------------67%

    I live 1 and 1/2 hours south of Atlanta and we are more humid than that area.  Anything stored outside either rusts or grows mold. Just takes time to happen.   
  8. Yea, I live close to Athens, so it's similar weather there.

    I get moss that grows on my Ram running boards & on my Wood Deck, but no Humidity ever hurt my MES, inside or out.

    I have the MB factory cover for my MES30 and I wouldn't buy it again.  It's very lightweight and thin for what you pay and has already faded quite a bit after only a single season on the north (shade) side of the house.  Do some searching as I saw people post about generic covers that fit very well and cost a fraction that the MB version does and I'm sure it holds up at least as well and likely better than for quite a bit less money.
  12. I had the MES cover and it leaked. Not bad but it leaked I returned it and got then char broil Cover.


    If I need another one I would buy it again. !8 months out side and it does not  leak.  Jted
  13. If I have trouble with the mes cover, I'll try the char broil one.

    I bought a generic cover for my mes 30 and it stays in the weather during warmer weather but put it in the garage during the winter.  It seems to repel water well, but as an added insurance, I put a large black trash bag over it under the cover.  Just to insure the electronics don't get wet.  Works for me.

    Not sure. I have my MES 30 covered with one but I keep my smoker in my garage when not in use.
