OK - I've done a lot of looking at creative solutions on the forum to all weather smoking ie rain and snow. This topic is very important to me as it seems the weather here in Sunny SD has been anything but this summer. Ever present Thunderstorms complete with drenchers and high winds and winter coming with high winds and kizz ur a@@ cold blows.
My set up will be an AmeriQue that will roll out on the drive when smoking which will hopefully be often.
Question #1 I realize "the cover" addresses the need when not in use, but with much apparent demand why hasn't CS capitalized on the "all weather cover" demand while IN use? Seems a like a no brainer money maker if they came out with a simple factory made all weather solution.
If someone is spending the kinda jing on a CS an accessory that protects the investment while in use seems an easy addon for sales.
Question #2) Anybody ever done anything with a plexiglass fabrication? Since it would be done at home I'm picturing a lightweight framing holding together a box without a bottom that just sets over the top with air holes on the sides for air circulation. Maybe there's a problem with the smoke discoloring and it ending up being a brown box over the top but just curious.
It seems the perfect solution would be easily removable by you not by wind and transparent to see the readout.
Yes I realize the shrinkwrap and elbo is a very cheap and easy resolution...but doesn't it have issue with 35+MPH winds buffeting it? I don't want to lay in bed listening to the rain power washing my window wondering if my wrap is holding?
Yes the ideas of plywood with bricks and other original homemade weather IN use covers make simple sense...but I want my CS sittn proud and lookn as good as it smells.
I know i know....It's about the product...and I can live with that and whatever it takes I'll figure out what works for me and share... but just thinking.
It comes down too wanting a few things in the weather smoking cover: Simple, Effective, Attractive.
