Default Cover for Bandera

My second post! I live outside Charlotte, NC. Anyone know of a place where I can get a cover for a Bandera? I have checked a lot of Home Depots, Lowes, and Wal-Marts. So far unsuccessful.

For those using a tarp, are you getting any rust build up? I noticed that some folks are using xtra large covers from other grills.

If need be, mail order would work, but I come up blank there as well after doing a search. I did search on this website as well and notice that the standard covers have fuzz problems.

I got an XL cover from the Evil Empire over a year ago. It's made of heavy duty cloth/canvas/something. It doesn't cover the very bottom of the smoke chamber but it takes care of the firebox.

As for rust, my firebox doesn't have any paint left on top. I spray it with oil during each cook and one day, perhaps, I'll brush it down and paint it, just so I can watch it burn off again.

The rest of the 'Dera doesn't have any rust.
I didn't hijack the thread. I just took it in a completely different direction.

The fuzz problem was on the earlier covers. and you can also get the ones without the liners. U can try the brinkman, NB or charbroil websites. Academy carries them occasionally, you may have to get one for the smoke king deluxe, which should fit.. But all in all , most just use a tarp and bungies.

Here's the one I bought:

It's for the Brinkman Smoke King Deluxe. Fits real good on the Bandera.

Bandera cover from Charbroil is a piece of chit. Maybe you wouldn't have the cracking problem down in NC but up here in the northland where it gets cold, the cover I had didn't last one winter. Charbroil did step up to the plate though and refunded my purchase. I now use a tarp and bungies, works great, just not pretty.
