I live in Florida and cook in the rain too
Yes those pop up thunderstorms can wreck havoc on a long cook.

What area of Florida do you live in ?

Cheers

As a midwestern person who smoked a chuck roast during the 40 below polar vortex, I approve this message. :)

I grew up in and spent 17 years of my teens and early adult life in that town. 3 or 4 o'clock rain is just summer life there.

I lived in Northern KY for 25 or so years and they get  fair amount of rain there 45+ inches a year. So I took a patio umbrella and by using a short 19 inch piece of PVC pipe end cap and two hose cramps , I attached the umbrella to the rear leg of my performer that way I could move it to where I was most needed. Very handy and stable too, and this way you always had a table handy.

When it rains, I often use what I'll call the Weber Firepit Method with my SSP.
Just to use the WFM would be another great reason to consider mounting a WSM in an old Performer frame.

I've also put up one of those 10 x 10 canopies & keep the canopy low (in case of wind).  I'll pop it back up a bit when I want to check on things.  I've also picked up quite a few of these dog stake out corkscrew things at garage sales & flea markets for $1 or even 50 cents, they really help anchor canopies, tents, whatever.
