I've only seen them for the models with a smoke stack. The blankets would block the downdraft exhaust of the non-smoke stack models.

I haven't seen any made to fit. Looked at using welders blankets and fire proof felt but just wound up using an old thick cotton floor mat my wife had and it has worked well covering the top and front.
Too bad the Silverton lid sides are not double thickness like the Ironwood.

Hoping Traeger will make a blanket for the Silverton. Sure would help in the winter. I emailed Traeger directly, and they did respond. Just no commitment to make one. I encourage everyone to contact Traeger.

Have not seen an OEM cover for the Silverton, but got this welding felt from Amazon for $40. It is good thickness, easy to cut and seems to work well. I poked holes and put the handle screws through it and need to get some more magnets to hold the rest. Temperature differences with and without are significant. (the front photo is before I placed it under the handle)

Thanks for sharing. Do you find the felt is blocking the ability for the smoke to exit the grill?

This looks similar to the ones we use at the shop i work at. If it gets wet it may fall apart. Just keep an eye on it if it rains. If you have a small piece you could "test" it with water to confirm or disprove it.

I cut it into two pieces and made each one just short of any exhaust edges and ports. Ex: on the top back of the lid where a lot of smoke exits after adding LavaLock I did not let it hang over the edge. On the second part for the back, I also cut it just shy of the vents. Not sure how your grill is, but mine smokes from everywhere including out the bottom cabinet. I can take some more pics if you need, let me know.

Whoa, didn't know that! Seattle has been known to get some rain... The grill is under a gazebo and grill cover, but I do have a small piece to test and will report back

I tested a small piece and let it soak overnight. It stood up well with no issues, but I could see a larger piece soaked from rain possibly stretch or tear if pulling/moving it. Thanks again for the heads up so I can keep an eye on it!
