i have only had my new Blackstone 36'' griddle for a couple of weeks , but i already realize that i am going to need some type of tool storage
from what i can tell i will need to be able to store at least 2 long handle spatulas, tongs , meat press, scraper and oil bottle
i would like to be able to store these outside near the griddle in all kinds of weather . any ideas ?

I just use a resin Rubbermaid outdoor deck box I picked up from Home Depot. Holds everything I need for outdoor cooking.

I use a rubbermaid container with a hinged lid. It fits on lower shelf of my 28" blackstone. Right now it is holding everything that you need it to hold. If I remember, I will attach a pic once I get home.

You could also get a metal or plastic wall cabinet and fasten it to the legs under the shelf on the right side of the grille.

Besides a tool box, you may need a couple of other items for your outdoor kitchen. A good set of outdoor knives comes in handy and if you knick one you don't get yelled at and of course, a box large enough to hold everything securely including things you haven't thought about yet:
