Long-ish cook in rain/wind

I've been asked to take care of the 'cue for my neighbor's Christmas party. Will probably do a few butts, but could do a packer brisket or two.

While the temps will likely be in the 70s here this weekend, there may be some rain & wind. Also, in general, we do occasionally get some sub 32 days or nights here. So, even if I don't use one this weekend, I expect to eventually need one.

I'll be using my WSM, and, if it gets here in time, possibly my Stoker. Would you recommend a rain jacket for the WSM (I know the Stoker blower & controller need to be kept dry)? If so, since I'm not going to lay down $100 for the nice looking Guru jacket (is the top closed off on the Guru jacket?), what would you recommend?

I've seen the VWBB page on same. So, I have a decent idea on materials, but not necessarily design.

I just got home from Buffalo about two weeks ago. I spent some time in West Seneca too.
