    What off brand cover for my son's 26" Kettle

    I know off brand covers have been discussed several times here, but I couldn't find any of the threads. I went back over two years in the Weber forum but didn't see anything. My Son is looking for a cover and was shocked at the price of the Weber cover...


    Good question. I gave up covering my cookers because the covers trap dew and they never dry out.

      Yep, I have noticed that trapped dew too. So in between rains, I will heat up my grill just to keep it dry. This works for me.
      Long live BBQ and PBR too.

      That was my thought too untill my 26 starting rusting and the welds failed. Now I'm covering any grill not under a roof.


    I got this for mine and never felt like anything else would be much of an improvement


      I have covers from The Cover Store on the web that are made well, are thicker than Weber covers and less expensive.

        I was ready to pull the trigger on one of these for my Blackstone griddle. I ended up going with another one from Home Depot, but The Cover Store makes some really nice stuff that you can customize.

        +1 on The Cover Store. The cover material lasts a long time, is basically waterproof, and lets water vapor under the cover escape. I have a cover for my big Weber Summit E670, WSM, and one of my 22 kettles, and also have a cap cover on my hot tub.

      I bought this one for $21. Seems pretty good for the price.



        Bought 2 iCover brand covers from Amazon. Decent quality and less than half the cost of Weber.


          Thanks all. I have passed the recommendations to my Son.


            I don't need a cover. but if I did, I'd have to look at this one pretty hard, and it comes in 4 sizes. Just click on "view more" after the link below loads. HTH

              That's not a cover for a 26" kettle.

              It does allow room in case he ads a Performer like table.

            Coversandall.com I have three of these at the house and two at the lake house. They are phenomenal. For $60 bucks they are definitely worthy the money. I’ve had the three at my house for 4 years now - they are under the patio, although one does get half day sun and is still doing well. Not brittle and hasn’t faded. The material is sunbrella, so holds up well.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
