Hey guys, I just bought an Eastwood 22. The only concern I had before my purchase was storage. My patio is open, so it will only be protected by the cover. I live on the coast of Mobile Bay, and we get lots of rain. Do you think I will have an issue with moisture getting in the electrical components? That was my only concern when going with my Treager verses a green egg.

As CampWhatNot says.......Use it.

In a heavy humid environment, you will have massive mold growth on the egg if you do not use it regularly as in at least on weekends.

The Traeger covers are very heavy duty and will protect it, but regular use will also help it to drive moisture out.

I would recommend removing the pellets if you are not going to use the grill for an extended period of time. I live in Austin and leave my pellets in the Traeger for a week or so while traveling for work with no issue, but it is covered with a factory cover.
