Works for me... I insulated the Traeger. I got wet but the Traeger stayed fairly dry. so the cook was good...
If you cook in the rain you may burn more pellets....

Not if you sing ;)

Personally I'd have at least some cover overhead if possible, otherwise smoke on!
I just started using it for first time today and it started raining. Got sunny. Now raining again. Lol. I have a cover gazebo coming tomorrow. Just wasn’t sure if it caused a bad reaction with the metal to be hot while being rained on or if a risk to the electrical components.

The controller is pretty much protected from a drizzle, you may get some water spotting on the paint when mixed with ash etc.
