Thinking ahead to winter, I'm working out the details of a better setup for the Eggs. Currently, the Large in it's nest is at the end of a concrete walk to nowhere, the Small in its nest is on the lawn alongside it, and a decommissioned small Weber gasser acts as a tool box.
When we just had the Small, all of the EGGcessories fit inside the Weber. Most of the EGGcessories for the Large are too big, so I have them in the bike shed about 60 feet away. That's not a problem now, but when we have two feet of drifting snow it will be.
I like compact working arrangements (our kitchen is 8' by 8') and plan to build a 6' square "deck" (actually it will look more like a shipping pallet) to get the eggs up out of the slush and mud. The Large will reside in one corner. The Small will be diagonally opposite. My chair will be in one of the remaining corners. (The fronts of both Eggs will face the chair.) And, hopefully, something that replaces the Weber will sit in the 4th corner.
My thought, today, is to build some open shelves of PT wood leave anything made of stainless out in the weather with just the things I want to keep dry in waterproof boxes. The alternative of trying to build a weatherproof cabinet is too daunting. Unless, somebody makes something that would do the job. I've looked at the big Rubbermaid cabinets at Home Depot but the ones deep enough for the 18" cast iron grate are too big otherwise for my little "deck."
Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.
