Default Mel's is gone? Source for cooker covers

Brethren, it looks like Mel's BBQ Grill Covers may be out of business, which is a shame because I have two of their covers, and I think those things may outlive me...the custom cover they made for my CS-680 weighed 14 lbs to ship!

Anyone have any info on these guys? Or does anyone have a source for a place that makes heavy duty grill & smoker covers? My neighbor has a new rig and it needs a cover, and those cheap thin things I see everywhere won't survive an Iowa winter.

I know someone who can sew you one out of the kind of heavy duty vinyl used to make commercial grade tents (like for fireworks stands). PM me if you want to pursue.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but if anyone does a search on this at a later time, it appears that Starfleet Enterprises are now making the same types of covers that Mel's used to make. Their website is: http://www.starfleetenterprises.com/index.html

They have an announcement about the acquisition of Mel's assets here: http://www.starfleetenterprises.com/...t%20sewing.htm
