Now Pags, I'd never treat my 020 like that. I use a milk crate to cover over hole and a bigger piece of plywood on top the crate with a concrete block on it. The plywood is big enough to keep water from hitting the top of the smoker, but it's not tornado prof,oh well!
This keeps my Taylor probes out of the elements also, but to each his own.
I just don't let the dang rain keep me from smoking.
