Default Homemade Rain Cap Ideas

Unfortunately, rain is in the forecast tonight but I need to get my cooker going to feed some friends tomorrow.

Any ideas on fashioning a simple rain cap for the exhaust pipe on my Assassin?

I don't expect it to be too windy

I bought one of these at Home Depot for use on my OK. Joe upright. It works well.

If the exhaust is anything like on a BWS then turn your charcoal chimney upside down and foil the top. The smoke will come out the chimney holes but keep the rain out.

For homemade, a metal can with holes cut in the sides, flipped upside down over the chimney. For future use you can go to the hardware store and look through the air ducting. There are several pieces that will work there in several diameters.
