Just curious.  How do all of you store your temperature controllers when not using them?

Personally, I use a small, clear rectangular plastic container (with cover) and place them AND the various thermocouple probes and instruction manuals in to keep them from getting lost or damaged. 

When the smoker is outside and in use, I put the controllers on top of the smoker and then, should it rain, turn the clear plastic box upside down and over the controllers to keep them dry.  So far only once did they get rained on but were kept snug in their  "garage". 

Update:  Forgot to mention my smoker (on wheels) is located approx. 60-80 feet inside a building away from my deck and house when not in use.  I wheel it outside when smoking.
