Keeping your prized possessions covered all year around is a smart thing to do. Our grills and barbecues are not cheap and they should be protected to make them last as long as possible. A good quality cover is an important investment for you to consider. My new friends at Empire Covers were kind enough to send me a grill cover and a log rack cover to review.
I have a log rack in the back yard full of Almond, Oak, and a few bits of Cherry wood that is 8 foot wide and believe me, it isn’t the prettiest thing to look at. There is nothing worse than wet wood to cook with and every year mine gets wet during the winter. I also have my Beast Smoker Grill that has been uncovered since I received it earlier this year. Therefore, two perfect items to cover and Empire Covers sent me the perfect grill cover and log rack cover them with.
The first package I opened was the log rack cover, in my favorite color forest green, and I was immediately impressed by the quality. Heavy-duty material well stitched and with Velcro to open the front part of the log rack cover for easy access and placement on the log rack. This is a full size log rack cover, with 100% full coverage on all sides. I really liked the white accent trim around the top log rack cover defining the outline and giving it a clean, crisp, uniform look.
There is no doubt that this log cover will hold up to the elements and keep my wood dry all year long. Not to mention the added bonus of making that ugly woodpile look very nice.
My new grill cover is a nice nutmeg in color, lightweight durable fabric that is breathable and waterproof. The breathability will help reduce mold and mildew on my grills and that is a plus. Very well stitched and put together, including a strap and buckle system to help hold it in place when the wind picks up.
One note but I would like to make in the difference between this grill cover and some of the others that I have, is that when I remove this to cook on my grill it will fold up into a very small package. Some of my other grill covers are so heavy that I have to lay them on top of something else but not with this grill cover I can fold it up and put it in a drawer until I need it again.
Empire Covers has a large selection of covers to fit every need out there from cars, boats, recreation vehicles and a great selection of outdoor patio covers to choose. Most of the products come with a one or two year warranty depending on the type of material you select. The pricing in my opinion is very reasonable and they seem to have specials going on all the time.
Take a minute and stop by and visit Empire Covers check out their selection and cover up your prized possessions this winter.
This spring I will give you an update as to how well they survived the elements here in Central California.
