It has seen some rain. The hopper seems sealed pretty well. What I have done is take a garbage bag and just put it over the hopper and pull down to cover the control pad. But I can tell you it has seen the rain naked and no issues.

Well, now that I have used the fec120 for a month and competed in my first comp using it, I am happy to say I love it! Have not had any issues at all, it puts out great que, and by taking away some hassle, I am using it way more on a weekly basis than I ever did with my WSM.

I will be using it at the Battle of the Brethren if anyone wants to come check it out.

So no issues in rain? I was told by dealer to not run it in the rain as it could cause components to get wet and it will void the warranty on it.

I run my FEC-100 with the cover on and it has seen torrential rain, 70+ MPH winds, tornado warnings, freezing rain and even snow and it just cooks. I don't know if there is a cove for the 120 that allows you to cook with it on.

Nope. Like I said, I used it at the BBQ Battle in DC where it did rain for a few hours. All I did was put a garbage bag over the hopper/control panel. It has also sat out in my backyard where it is under an awning but did see a ngith where it was out in the open in the rain, no problem.

There is no cover for the 120, don't know why.
