Storing your tools outdoors

Can anyone give me a suggestion for storing my tools, charcoal, wood, etc outside.
I currently use a plastic container with two drawers but they leak.
I would like something that would weather well and look decent.

The pic shows my current storage under the gas grill

Re: Storing your tools outdoors

Rubbermaid makes outdoor storage bins of all different types and styles. They are pricie but good. http://www.rubbermaid.com/Category/Page ... me=Outdoor

You may also want to try http://www.mels-bbq-covers.com/. Larry turned me on to her a few years ago and she made covers for all my grills. Top quality covers and a fairly reasonable price. She is more than the Hoome Depot covers but you won't believe the weight and quality of the fabric she uses.

Re: Storing your tools outdoors

well... the one wouldn't leak so much if it didn't have that HOLE in it! LOL... Dude, that grill has seen a lot of love! Next to that new WSM it must feel like you have went through midlife crisis and got a new younger girfriend.

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

Thanks for the tips. Yean, my storage and gas grill have seen better days. My new love is the WSM. That picture was the day of her first time.

I have a Suncast deck storage box, it has never leaked a drop of water as far as I can tell.

Re: Storing your tools outdoors

I just purchased the small "Rubbermaid" deck box. It should be good enough for now.
Thanks again!!
