post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

i'm going to be storing my charcoal in my shed. should i find a sealed container? ie rubber sealed rubbermaid? or can i just use any old rubbermaid style container? maybe use some silicone and seal the edge? wife says the charcoal has to get out of the kitchen lol

uummm.. does the shed leak ? is the charcoal not in bags ? I just put it on something to raise it up off the floor.. but it's also still wrapped in the plastic (2-20 lbers) from the factory...

I would suppose that would depend on how water tight your shed is.  If it is fairly, I mean a few holes under the roof overhang, insects but not much else might wander through these holes, just a normal rubbermaid type container would suffice.  charcoal, it is dried product. Do your tools, shovels and such, rust out there?  if so moisture content may be too high and thus a sealed container should be used.

I keep unopened bags in the garage and the open bag goes in a rubber made container on the deck near the grill and smoker. I've never had a moisture issue that way.

I keep my unopened bags as is in my basement and the open ones I pour into my Kingsford Charcoal Kaddy which I keep outside with my smoker. I haven't had any issues with them keeping dry yet.
