Where do you store all your stuff?

Newb amazed at how big my stash of Egg stuff has gotten already!  Place setter, pizza stone, drip pans, spacers, raised rack, the list goes on...not to mention all the prep stuff...AND the extra bag of lump.  So how do you folks store all this stuff?  I bought one of those giant Tupperwear-like storage bins, thinking I'd have everything inside and stash it right by the Egg, but now I'm wondering about condensation.  Here in Georgia the temp ranges from 20 to 105 with lots of humidity.  Am I going to end up with a bin full of mold, rusty metal and soggy lump?  Any suggestions?

    I bought a Lifetime brand deck box at Lowe's and I love it. All Eggcessories and open bags of lump are stored in it on my back deck with no issues. I'm also in Georgia, up near Athens. Once I put the deck box together, I bought a tube of LockTite exterior silicone and ran a bead around all the gaps. I tested some paper towels in the bottom durong a 2 day downpour and it was completely dry inside. I figured the silicone was overkill, but worth it just in case.

    I had a weber performer before I started egging. It has a trash can looking thing on one side for coal, that's where my lump and torch goes. It has a tabletop, I do prep there. the old grill itself has just seasoned cast iron since getting the egg. Everything else is in my garage on a Walmart brand shelf, 5 shelves and $60 I believe. Also, not 100% but baking soda will kill the mold if you leave an open box in there, kinda wicks up all moisture.

    My stuff is spread all over the place.   PS lives in the egg most of the time.   Extra grate, rib rack, stone, etc are on the shelves of my table - I built with two shelves for the room and I have some to spare.  Lump and smoking wood in the garage, spices and rubs on a shelf in the basement.  Cast iron pieces between the kitchen and the basement.  With the weather and seasons here, storing it all together near the egg is not an option.

    I have extra lump in the garage and all the Egg stuff in a aluminum pickup truck bed box, sitting on the. Deck by the Egg. It's watertight, and no problem with the Virginia Summer humidity.

    Built this cabinet to store most of the grills, torch, and tools . It's only 8" deep so doesn't stick out to far from the wall

  • The drawers in the table are great. The roof keeps everything fairly dry except for blowing rains. So I keep anything electrical and cast iron inside or in garage.
