Covered in winter, outdoors in summer. Which reminds me that my gasser's cover has some tears and needs replacing.

Always cover. Black really shows the dust so it helps keep them clean and slows down the rust...

Living in Colorado, 100% covered. Besides the snow, hail, tornados the sun is also brutal. After a cook and clean one summer I left my WSM out uncovered because I was going to cook again in a day or so and the weather was great. The sun hit it hard and heated it up and the neighbors kid (3 or 4 years old) came over and wanted to play BBQ, touched the side and burned her hand bad enough to leave a couple blisters on her palm.

That wouldn’t have happened if I had it covered. Yes, the sun will chew through some covers, but I like to take care of my toys and I don’t want anyone to get hurt because of them either.

I used to be a fan of covers but after uncovering my PBC, Good One Open Range, and Good One Marshall after not using them for awhile and finding quite a bit of rust, I quit covering them. The PBC ended up having a hole in the bottom. I always keep my cookers cleaned out with no ash inside.

These cookers live under a carport that has sides but both ends are open so they usually don't get any direct moisture but the wind does blow some of it on them. This carport also has a concrete floor which I feel contributed to a lot of the rust since most of it was confined to the bottom of all three. I feel like the covers trapped moisture underneath them and help create these issues.

I have went no covers on my M1 and campmchef flat top (do have the SS cover on it though)...the weber performer at the lake has a cover but it sure seems to me that moisture gets trapped under the covers and makes rust more of an issue. I plan on leaving my workhorse offset in patina finish uncovered all the time

I have a open covered patio where my cookers live. UV from the sun over time attacks any paint or enamel over time. Also wind with grit, and general debris. Don't forget the birds and insects and pollen. I've gone out and seen what was a clean cover when I put it on and then see what it looks like and think if it was not for the cover it would be in and on that smoker.


One more thing I learned many years ago is to never close off all the vents or you could invite mold due to condensation. A small vent opening on top and bottom will allow some air and evaporation.


Congratulations on the cooker and just my .02.

Uncovered here. I can't deal with a large tarp everytime I want to mess with it. Don't get me wrong. I babied the hell out of this thing when I first got it. Now it just sit outside and I've made some additions to keep it water tight in the rain. Planning on adding a roof once the reverse flow chamber is done.

DrEven the covers I use for "Postal Weather" are beginning to look like the grapes of wrath. I was gifted a new Primo Cover, Think the OK Joe Bronco covers are in stock locally 30$, Tiernan recently sold and heard a rumor that the new owners are manufacturing The SOB again so perhaps a cover-though guessing it would probably be north of 125$ like the Primo. Fornetto may just get a generic bullet cover.

Or perhaps, I may just go buy a couple blue tarps and utilize my roadfind bungee cords. Or as Toast says,or Formerly Toast says, always allow airflow via vents. Life on The High Plains is not the same as life in the swamp.

It's not as if I'm spending money on fishing trips

Not sure yet. I doubt it. I’ll Maybe get a pk360 or a weber 26 for quick grills. I can’t stand weber legs, so would have to build a table for a 26”...PK is attractive to me that way. My deck is only so big and I’m not a fan of having numerous grills scattered about the deck though as the flat top takes up some room as you know!

I have a weber performer at the lake that I really like using. I Could take the M1 down there I suppose. But steps are a no go with that thing!
