Where do you store your EGG accessories?

I store mine inside my egg after I shut it down.

2- plate setters (one has a broke leg- I just can't part with it)

1- pizza stone

SS and CI grid

Veggie rack

V-Rack

kabob rack

extension rack

 

I guess I cook enough on the egg cause I have never had any mold issues

I store my other accessories in an outdoor box on my back porch- grid pliers, electric fire starter, torch starter, BGE fire starter bricks, welder gloves, lump coal bags and flavored wood chunks.

    I keep the stone and platesetter on the lower shelf of my table. Pizza peel slides nicely under the platesetter. I have 2 plastic bins on rails that I keep other stuff in that I don't want to get wet. My half moon raised grid and grate live inside of the egg.

    I just wondered if I was the only one that used the EGG for storage

    I don't store anything other than what was used on the last cook, and the daisey wheel, inside.  I cook on both Eggs at least once a day.  I could not do all that loading and unloading.

    I store my stuff in or behind the bench.  Not real pretty, but works well.

    I wanted to buy one of those and my wife said it would be a perfect place for the kids outdoor toys. She needs to understand that the egg is my outdoor toy and we need one for the kids and one for me. Sounds logical, right?

    You got that right.  Exactly what happened at my house.  Wife has one for her "garden junk", mine is filled with the "good stuff".  Also makes a good place to set your drink down or have a seat if needed.

    SG,

    Left cabinet, second lowest shelf, wrapped in kitchen garbage bag, is my 16" wok with a wooden handle.  My 3 other woks are on a rack above my stove with my CI pans.  I don't like to keep my woks outside in the humidity.

    @VI, I spy some quality cookware in those craftsman cabinets. Very nice.
    I think the wife would kill me if i put our enamel pot in the egg.

    Yep, I am not allowed to put the Le Creuset pots on the Egg.  Those cabinets are for Egg stuff and kitchen overflow.

    I have the vertical equivalent of one those that I used to store soccer stuff when I was coaching.  I have charcoal, chunks, and indirect stone in it.   I need to add a couple more shelves to handle accessories.  Currently using my weber kettle to store my CI grid and another bin for the chimney and other stuff.
