    Anyone know where to get a good, THICK cover for my Char-griller with side fire box?

    I have gone through several that we get from Home Depot or Lowes, but they are thin & rip after a couple of months of taking off & putting back on.

    I know someone sells one...I was on a chimney fire call one day & the person had a good thick cover on theirs. I never had a chance to ask the homeowner where they got it!

    Just get yourself a outdoor furniture sofa cover. I have a chargriller duo with SFB and it covers it well and never had a problem with tears, etc.

    I bought the one from chargriller. It's windy by where i'm at so the wind ripped it up in no time. I ended up throwing it away and now I have no cover.

    Thanks everyone! I plan to compare the part # for the one on the site to the one at Lowes.

    I am also checking out Mel's as soon as I finish here...

    You can do Like I did. I did away with having to cover the grills after using them.
    I just covered all of them with some wood.

    This is a great idea, and I might also suggest you look into a motorcycle cover. They are easy to find and will fit over the smoker. Some have insulated linings to prevent a hot tailpipe from burning through the cover, and this could work for covering something that is still warm, if necessary.
     
  11. I gave up on finding one that would fit. I measured up on side and down the other both ways and bought a tarp that size and some bungy cords.

    Depends on your set up. Covered BBQ area or not? Rainy area or sea salt air? ect. ect.

    I have a covered porch so I don't use a cover and other than the fire box mine looks fine. The firebox will rust, almost gurantee - it just gets to dang hot and the paint peals off. But it is just surface rust so you can just clean it with a wire brush and repaint it once a year and generally do good.
