Hey everyone,

I’m planning on cooking some ribs today but there is quite a bit of rain/wet snow in Alberta. Do you think it will be ok as long as the power cable and extension lead are covered? I’ve seen people in the UK and Belgium cooking in lots of rain and it seems just fine.

Cheers!

I've cooked in the snow before with out issue. I would try to keep the hopper face were the controller is mounted dry, so water doesn't creep in behind the controller.

Alberta....just wait 20 minutes and you'll be in a completely different weather system.
You guys can have all 4 seasons in a matter of hours.

I have a Timberline 1300 and I cook out 3-4 times a week in all types of weather. Never a problem so far. However, the Timberline is double walled and does a good job of keeping the heat in and the cold out. If your cooker isn't double walled, you may want to pick up a welders blanket or a blanket made by Traeger specifically for your cooker if one is available. That will give you the ability to cook in all sorts of weather. Be careful around the electrical cord!
