Your method for storing or hanging grate as part of prepping to cook process?

Been an egger for 5 years and have converted many gassers to the BGE.  Recently I feel I am in need of a bit of process refinement. My egg resides on a freshly stained wooden deck.  Upon prepping my egg for a cook - I remove the heavy (size Large) cast iron grate and lean it against the egg table - light the grill and add it back to the interior of the dome when ready, etc...   

Problem:  Grate is making a black oily mess on my deck and the side of my table.  Sometimes the grate will slip and fall flat on the deck and, man, can the wide cast iron grill leave behind a lot of black stain that is nearly impossible to clean off the deck. 

Given I just pressure washed and stained my deck - looking for a cleaner solution as to setting the grate aside while lighting the egg.  Thought of adding a lag bolt to the side of the table to hang the grill - but curious what creative solutions already have been vetted by fellow eggers...   Otherwise, my pre-cook order of operations are solid.
