Costco usually has BBQ covers at ~$20 that hold up well.

Another vote for Costco

Look in seasonal, and buy em while they have em

I got a nice non-plastic one there a few years back (strong canvas)

Was so good, the next year I bought another

Plan is now to always have a back up on hand.

Those black BBQ covers from Costco never lasted me more than a year before cracking or falling apart.

I've had a Ravenna (made by Classic Accessories) for 6 years now and it's still in decent shape. Plus they have a lifetime warranty!

I ordinarily buy my covers from Amazon for my Weber BBQ and have been very pleased. I will admit though that they only last about 3-4 years before eventually ripping, usually at one of the handles. Given I paid ~$20 though I can live with it.

Tip: if you BBQ in the winter, get a black cover. I used to purchase lighter coloured covers but the snow would never melt off of them in the winter sun. With a black cover all of the snow melts on sunny days allowing me to easily BBQ in the winter.

The only cover that has lasted me is the one I bought at Costco. I think it's been 4 years, still good as new.

Another vote for Costco covers. I bought one years ago and this year might be its last so I planned ahead and picked another one last summer from Costco.

I gave up on buying more expensive bbq covers as none of them seem to last, so just went with the cheap generic black Canadian Tire one last time for < $20.. On its fourth year now and its in good shape actually.

Glad I found this. My BBQ is big green egg. I have a cover about 3 years old. It's stiff but it's still holding up. What kind of material is used for covers? One I had few years back was some kind of plastic didn't last more than a year. Being in the sun day after day doesn't help.

If you want a quality cover, try https://www.cuvers.ca I'm not sure if he is still making covers but he has made several custom covers for me including a green egg that I used to have and my current smoker. You send him pictures and he draws out the measurements he needs from you. He's a one man shop but they are quality handmade covers and he is a super nice person to deal with.

Over the last 12 years our Weber has never been covered, at any time of year. Fires up every time.

I use the $20 Costco cover. One is about 6 years old, a little worn but hardly "falling apart". It covered my gas grill for 5 years, until it moved over to the smoker last summer. Got a new Costco cover for the gas grill.

No rust or sign of wears? you think bbq cover is a gimmick?

I am not worried about the stainless steel exterior/interior, but the piping connectors might have some corrosive metal parts?

My Broil King is 9 years old this summer and has never been covered. I use it over 300 times a year and it's still going strong, havent replaced anything.

Previous BBQs I used to buy covers that would just die in direct sunlight.

Mine (charbroil) came with a cover but I stopped using it last year because it's an invitation for mice. No issues for me either.

Oh geez, forgot about that. Got a few surprises when opening the bbq. One little guy couldn't find the way out.
