I have had my grill for about 6 weeks now and the only thing that frustrates me with it is that it is kind of a pain the ace to get setup... i have direct grates, big top shelf, small top shelf, a brush, lights, shop vac, smoke tube, multiple flavors of pellets, etc........ WHERE DO YOU KEEP ALL THIS STUFF? LOL.

So I spent some time researching and found, what I think, is an awesome solution.

The main "cabinet" is an oversized patio box. Inside the box I have all my grates, multiple 5-gallon buckets with pellets (and air/water tight Gamma lids that are FDA approved for food). I have a shelf that is sold as an option to this storage box to set my gloves, tools, smoke tube, etc.. on. My shop vac is mounted to the wall inside and I have power ran to the box.

This has made grilling so much easier... I can open the box, take the cover off and get going. Before I had to rearrange things, set stuff on the ground, set stuff on my patio table... it was a pain.

I plan to install a paper towel holder and box of gloves holder on the lid, just haven't gotten that far.

Anyway, hope you like this and I hope this is helpful for others if they have the same issues I have had.
