Lump storage?

I was in Lowe's today and saw a $12 plastic bin with a flip top for charcoal storage. Black with a blue top. I was thinking it would be just right for keeping handy instead of an open bag.

What does everybody use to store their lump in? Never seen a thread on this. Comments welcome.

  • I have (2) plastic bins as well that fit under my table. I store my lump in one and the different smoking woods in the other.

    I have 2 of those same bins that you mentioned - I think they have a Kingsford label on them.  They will hold about 10 pounds each.

    I keep mine in the factory bag in my garage.  Never really lasts long enough to worry about storage.  I use it to cook, not make diamonds! :D

    I've been using two of those for several months now with no issues. They are Kingsford Charcoal Kaddy. I get almost a full 22 pound bag of WGWW in each. My base is clear, wished I'd found the black ones at Lowes first.

    I haven't implemented this yet, but was thinking of using a plastic storage bin with a raised screen of some sort on the bottom that would allow for the dust and very small particles fall to the bottom.  Don't like getting to the end of a bag and end up pouring dust and tiny pieces into the Egg.

    I think this would be the best solution.
