I don't. The Egg has a felt gasket (which I hate, actually) and the hole in the top is covered by a ceramic cap when it's not being used. I only use lump charcoal, never briquettes; briquettes would probably absorb some moisture.

I use lump as well and alson put the ceramic top on and keep the bottom closed. With it being warm outside it heats up the egg and moisture forms inside.

I haven't had that problem. Does your lump still light up pretty quickly?

I don't and mine stays in the rain. I have a cover but never use it. I threw the ceramic top away day one.

I have read some of the other threads/post and it looks like this is the place to go when I get ready to buy one!!

Electric Motor. I keep telling myself that $600-800 is a lot of money for a grill and then I think of how much I have spent in the past on grills that last 2 years at best. Seems to be a NO BRAINER.!!

You will kick yourself in the ass for not buying one sooner.

With a ceramic cooker, you don't have to deal with the rust issues we have down here. Unless I knock it over and crack it my Egg will be around longer than I will. You could spend the same amount on a nice gas grill and have to replace the burners in a year or two.

The only complaint I have, really, is that they kind of nickel and dime you for "Eggcessories."

If you pull the proverbial trigger, get the plate setter/indirect heating thing and look into digital controls like the BBQGuru (I bought one from a really nice forum member). With the digital control, I can put some meat on at midnight, wake up and check the Egg, go fishing and come back home to a pork shoulder.

Just my two cents.

Default go on and get you one

If you grill over 2x a week it will pay for itself within a few years based off of money saved from charcoal. If you use Kingsford in a standard charcoal grill it is $6-9 at least every time you fire it up. I can cook at least 7x on a $7ish sack of Royal oak from wally world. Not to mention all the other reasons that have been listed time and time again. I have never meet a single person that regrets getting one. I have also seen it turn around many a folks abilities to turn out a decent meal.

I use my BGE about 2-3 a week. I use strickly lump charcoal and start that in a chimney starter over my propane fish cooker. Takes about 90 seconds of fire from the burner and the chimney will do the rest. As most of the other folks have said, less than ten minutes and your in business.
