How We Got Started
Several experienced indoor and outdoor cooking enthusiasts began a discussion about the difficulties of using our Big Green Eggs in the rain. One of our founders came up with a design to curb these and we modified and modified and modified it until we had a simple, effective design. This design works with the manufacture's vented top (NOT PROVIDED) to block the elements and allow your kamado to work as it always works, perfectly.
It is made of 5052 Aluminum which we chose for resistance to the elements and that it's used in many kitchen applications. By coincidence, It's also used for industrial vent caps. It will not rust but aluminum will degrade over years of elemental exposure. It's not indestructible by weather but the grade we chose combined with the fact that it's designed to be used just when needed, should make it last decades.
