    Grill Covers Don't Work

    well, they do if you don't use your grill. I know I'm not the only one that grills in inclement weather... in fact I sometimes LOVE to grill in the challenge of a decent storm or cold spell.

    My covers end up getting trashed by rain or snow on JUST THAT DAY, while I'm cooking. And, I can't put a cover back on a hot grill - that only melts the cover onto the grill.

    This is the only cover that really works - I want one... :

    Kit form or assembled 😊.

        I have been pondering what to build for a covered cooking area. I think this is it! I have just the spot for it. Thanks for sharing.

        cgrover60 I used some plans from Family Handyman. I paid a guy to pour the slab, and my neighbor and I built it.

        Thanks LA Pork Butt. I'm going to have to track down those plans.

      I’m lucky I guess, covered patio and covers on all outdoor cookers - the side burner, gasser, kettle and the smoker next to the couch. Living where I do, it’s dusty as get out so that’s the main purpose for me. And it does help. As for cold and rain......what is that....especially ran....and snow???? Hahah. Crazy New Mexico weather! Perhaps we get more of the white stuff now that I just made that comment.

      so, I guess you do need the built up cover!

      Added photo to show the airflow to help against the smoke lingering
