"Smokeware's Chimney Cap has drastically improved the usability of my BGE. I love that the adjustment does not change when I lift the lid. It's also much cleaner than the cast iron one."
"You cannot go wrong with ANY Smokeware products. I own multiple products from them and I am going to be buying more. Matt, Carly, and team do an awesome job with service and support. Thank you so much for all ya'll do for the Eggin' community!"
"This is the perfect upgrade for the top vent on the BGE. It is easy to adjust, keeps rain out of it if you forget to close it up after a cook and it is well made. I have one on both of my Eggs and I recommend them to everyone that has a Kamado cooker."
Lets you cook in any weather, rain or shine!
Won't fall off or change settings when opening your grill dome
Avoids flare-ups and sticking from excessive build-up of grease and exhaust
Eliminates rust and makes cleaning a breeze
Allows for greater temperature control at low temp cooks
In 2006, I got a large Big Green Egg as a gift and learned first-hand about all the advantages of cooking on a Kamado Style Ceramic Grill. After grilling some steaks “Pittsburg-Style” and slow-smoking some whole “Texas Tickler Chickens” I found out quickly that weather could be an issue with Ceramic Grills due to the cast iron top.
In Florida, we have a lot of great grilling weather, but we also have a lot of afternoon thunder storms, that show up during prime grilling time. After getting rained on during several cooks I began to look for a way to eliminate weather issues when grilling. I wanted to keep grilling, even in the rain.
Eventually, I came up with the prototype for the SMOKEWARE Stainless Steel Vented Chimney Cap. It kept the rain out of my Big Green Egg and solved a few other issues. No more cook-out’s ruined by an unexpected thunderstorm or by the vent setting changing when the dome is opened! No more having to beat the cast iron top open with a hammer due to grease freeze-up and no more rust or cast iron tops falling off and breaking.
