Hello SMF friends.. I am having a shed built on a trailer so i can smoke no matter what the elements are outside.. The shed is not all the big so i am trying to think of ways to save room. I don't want to have my bags of charcoal stacked in the shed in case i have to move it. Do you guys think its OK to store the charcoal in a rubber barrel or a galvanized barrel?.

                      I would think it would be ok just not sure on the moisture but with a lid on barrel  should be OK?

P.S i will have pic's of the shed in about a week it should be done by than..

I keep my smoker in a shed also so I can smoke in the elements. A 30 or 40 gal plastic drum with a plastic lid with the metal band clamp would work perfectly for storage of charcoal. You can add a dessicant to keep the moisture out

I just burn it up before it gets moist.
