I have one on my Large and the Mini Max Egg. They are fantastic. I got mine form Smokeware.

I'm not sure if you mean the vented cap like a smokeware. But I found a stainless bowl at home goods that I use on my Joe as a rain cap. Good solution for $4.

I have one from Smokeware (https://smokeware.com) that stays on my XL (which is exposed to the elements). Works fine but I haven’t seen a need to replace all of my DFMTs with them.

If you’re looking to get one soon you may want to wait a few days as they ran a March Madness 15% off sale last year.

Another vote for the smokeware cap worked well on my KJ.

Smokeware rules.

And using a 4" bowl to keep rain out of a $1000 grill is pretty funny!

IMO they should come with a 'rain proof' cap similar to the newer Joes right out of the box. For what these cookers cost you shouldn't need aftermarket stuff.

What are the advantages of the Smokeware product over the factory BGE item, other than being able to leave it out in the elements.

2 big advantages:

Keeps rain out better (gotta be really windy for water to get in).

Doesn't change position when you open the dome.

BGE has some new stuff coming out in the Spring (there was a you-tube about it). One of them was a corrosion-resistant cap that even had a little "umbrella" to use when cooking in the rain. It looked good.
