Until I get my grill shack built with a roof, I wanted a way to keep rain and snow out of my Louisiana grills 24 inch kamado top vent. Smokeware doesn't and won't make their version to fit. I do have one of the smokeware ones for my large grill dome and love it.
I have searched extensively for a solution and found a possible solution. I got a 9 inch galvanized stove pipe cap for reasonable price that only requires the kamado gasket seal for snug fit. This does go over the existing vent top. I have yet to test but does fit nicely.
I don't remember the guidelines as to if I can put the link here or not but is on Amazon for about 16 bucks. Cost more for shipping but still for around 35 dollars is a nice solution in my opinion.
Other than the bb ribs top meat part being a little dark and chewy(should I baste?) the first smoke unfoiled @260 for 4 hours was a success. I defiinatly need to fix the Lower vent leak but the top vent was sticking to the point that I had to use a rubber mallet to get it to move at all which made small adjustments tough. Anyone else had this problem?
