Does a cover come with a Weber Kettle?

I headed to Home Depot in a hour to pick up a kettle. Does it come with a cover, or will I have to pick one up?

Thanks

I don't think it does, but a garbage bag will work

Mine didn't either. Unfortunately, I don't think a garbage bag will fit over it. Gotta hit Ocean State Job Lot for a cheapie. Got any idea how wide the Platinum is? Should get one today, since it's gonna be crappy this weekend - again.... :-X

ditto here. Weber's products weather very well.

I looked at the covers ... the good was $44, the "basic" one looks like it WAS a trashbag. Too cheezy. Didn't even have the Weber logo. Don't waste $7 on that crap.

Glad I went with all you smart people and said screw it. =D>

The good cover for the kettle should have been around $22-$24. Made like the WSM cover, but bigger.

They don't come with a cover and and for my two cents don't really need one. I've got a kettle I've had for twenty years (it's got a "G" stamped on the vent). It has lived outside for twenty Alaskan winters without a cover and the only problem has been the wood handles. Well, that and the one touch vent adjuster is toast. Been meaning to replace that for a couple of years.

Finally used the cover on my kettle. Knew I was going to be gone for this three day weekend, so I put it on. The back porch gets a little messy when it storms down here. And it was going to. (storm that is)
It will be back off for another week (almost) of grilling.
