Here is the background
My new LBGE gets stored under a BGE cover and is under my grill gazebo, so it should stay reasonably dry but some wind driven rain may get blown on it. Still it will be a more humid environment than indoors. I've been hanging the BGE Grid Lifter, the BGE Dual Handle Grill Brush and Scraper and the BGE Ash Tool on the hooks under my Egg Shelves. I keep them on the folded up shelves when I cover my Egg. I noticed the other day that the scraper blade of the BGE DH Grill Brush is starting to show signs of rust. I also noticed the blade of the Ash Tool is starting to get discolored area making it look like it will soon have a rust spot. Now these are cleaning tools and I am not as worried about their appearance, but I do like to take good care of my tools.
I also recently picked up a 27"x27" outdoor base cabinet made out of "plastic" lumber. It has a cabinet section and an upper drawer unit. It too is under the grill gazebo. I picked up some gasketed bins that I store things like my grill baskets, raised grids, grill wok in. I think these items will remain moisture ( & bug) free. But there is still the top drawer. I can't get a bin that is both wide or deep enough and only 4" tall. So I am concerned about what I store in the drawer.
Here are my questions:
1) Do you guys store your Ash Tools, Grid Liters, DH Grill Brush etc out at your Egg full time and how have they held up? Is your Egg covered.?
2) Do any of you have outdoor cabinets you store your gear in? What do you store in it and how has it held up?
3) Do you have any tips or tricks related to storing your gear?
Thanks in advance for any insight you may provide. Where this is my third grill I am out of room in my indoor storage cabinet, and I like to store some of this outdoors near the Egg. But I don't want to damage these Eggcessories.
