The "Man Tote" and new toy for the Egg

photo 20130529_170816_zps9ee0cf8d.jpg

I know it's a horrible name, but  I used to load up this very ugly basket with the daily BBQ necessities to take out side for every cook .... I saw this tote at Lowes a while back and figured I could drill a few holes in the center ridge for therms and lighters, etc.   I told the kids it was more "Manly" so the name stuck.  We started decorating it out bits of bumper stickers.  I thought I'd share it with you.  Does anyone use anything similar?   

NEW TOY ALERT - You can see it in the back slot.  Figured I'd try out the Hi Que rack and see what all the buzz is about .... I hate ash build up!  Hope it holds up to the hype.

See ya-

    Thats a good idea. I have a dedicated big toolbox that has all my bbq stuff - makes it easy to travel with my stuff too.

    Very neat idea I very rarely add seasoning to a cook once it's already on the egg. All I have out to cook with is spatula, tongs, and grill brush.  Everything else is done in the kitchen. Still a great idea if it helps with your cooking.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    Thanks for all the comments.  Many of the contents constantly seem to change.  This is loaded with the seasonings that we just took on vacation.  I had to cook on a Weber Gasser :o    

    Around the house it has the usual's that Scottboras mentioned along with Clorox wipes, the Maverick therms, probe therm, gloves, spritz bottle, and its been known to carry a beer or two out for me, etc...

    That's a good idea!  I just make 100 trips in and out the door while I'm cooking and let all the AC out and the smoke in.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Love my High Q grate, make a tremendous difference. You'll also see how much "small" pieces you are getting whichever lump you use

    Looks good.  You just need to find a way to empty/shift some of the contents so you can dedicate an entire side of the tote to ice and beer.

    Mount that on a cooler with some wheels and I believe you'd have a winner.
